Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare – 10 Million Strong and Growing

cod4

Activision and Infinity Ward have stated that Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare has so far sold 10 million copies worldwide. Although as of this post the figures are not known regarding how many units per platform were sold, they did state the obvious when the Xbox 360 version was mentioned as being the most successful.

Call of Duty 4 has now joined the exclusive club of game titles that have sold 10 million or above since 2000 – there are less than 10 games which can claim this feat – and the game is still selling. Add in the map pack which sold over 1.5 million and you have a major cash cow for Activision thanks to Infinity Ward.

Pretty cool. Hopefully CoD5 will be just as fun as CoD4 - but since IW are not too involved with this one, I am just a little skeptical that it will do even half as well.

People didn’t like CoD 3 because it was so much different than CoD 2. Instead of running around with simple classes, it was more complex and a lot more strategy-based. I preferred it. It was much more than just who could pull the left trigger the fastest. CoD 4 a bit better about that, but IW has done some terrible stuff, like the spawning in Hardcore, the cheap LMGs, martyrdom, and for a game that claims to be realistic, it’s pretty, well, unrealistic. Granted, that’s the game I’m playing most now, but I think it’s overrated.
