Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Earns $310 Million In 24 Hours

Posted Nov 12, 2009

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is a new game that was developed by Infinity Ward and was published by Activision. Even before the trailer was released, there was a lot of hype about the release. All the hype paid off because the game earned $310 million in the first 24 hours that it was released. That dollar amount is just paid on sales in the United Kingdom and the United States.

The company sold 4.7 million copies of the game in 24 hours. This game beat the record of Grand Theft Auto: IV which sold 3.6 million copies on the first day. The game setting is based on a military conflict between Russia and the United States.

In the single player mode, the game player assumes the role of U.S. Army Ranger Private Joseph Allen and he helps Afghan city that has been taken over by militants. Allen ends up being killed by a Russian militant and is scapegoated for a massacre of civilians in Russia. Russia views this as a terrorist attack and attempts to invade the United States. This game is guaranteed to be an action-packed thrill ride. At least that’s what it looks like in the trailer.
