We have seen in previous years that Call of Duty titles (such as Black Ops or Modern Warfare 3) reach incredibly high expectations in terms of sales. Only two years ago, Modern Warfare 2 hit stores and 4.7 million copies were bought on day one. One year after that, Black Ops was released breaking the record with 5.6 million copies. The latest Call of Duty title has managed to break any previous record from a Call of Duty game. Modern Warfare 3 sold over 6.5 million copies in North America and the United Kingdom on day one. The game's release reeled in a impressive $400,000,000. Overall, Modern Warfare 3 earned approximately $40,000,000 more than Black Ops. "We believe the launch of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is the biggest entertainment launch of all time in any medium", says Bobby Kotick, CEO of Activision, in the official announcement.
The series has continued in the making of entertainment sales history. Modern Warfare 3 has crushed most movie and book sales numbers by a long-shot.
