Modern Warfare 2 Makes $600 Million In 5 Days; Modifies For Russians

Posted Nov 17, 2009

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 has become the top selling game by selling 9.4 million copies in five days and bringing in $600 million in revenue. This is even higher than Grand Theft Auto IV. The game was so popular that Xbox LIVE hit 2 million simultaneous players at once shortly after the game was released.

However the game was banned in Russia because of a controversial scene in which the main character kills civilians in a Russian airport. The mission is called “No Russian.” Activision agreed to remove this mission in copies that they ship to Russia.
