In his preview for the upcoming Q3 financial results for Activision Blizzard this Thursday, analyst Michael Pachter has said that he expects Modern Warfare 2 to make over $500 million at release.
He also expects the game will “easily sell 10 million units in Q4”.
“Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 should allow Activision to achieve guidance. We expect global sales to exceed $500 million in the first week following launch, and think that the company can easily sell 10 million units in Q4.”
The game is out next Tuesday for the PS3, 360 and PC.
