Last week, the first-person shooter Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 was launched. Just a few days later, it became apparent that the launch seemed to have been a great success. At least on a very specific platform, Infinity Ward’s action game was able to break a record. At this point we will tell you all the important details on this topic.
Modern Warfare 2 broke that record
Sony recently spoke up on the official Twitter channel and announced some interesting news. Accordingly, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 was able to lay down the best launch in the history of the series in the PlayStation Store. This includes both day one sales and pre-orders. So no other Call of Duty game has been so successful in this regard. However, Sony did not give any specific figures, so it is not possible to classify this record more precisely.
It is therefore also not known on which PlayStation console Call of Duty. Modern Warfare 2 has sold better so far. The first-person shooter is available for both PS5 and PS4. There is currently no information on the Xbox sales figures either, but the near future should probably provide a little more clarity in this regard. At least there are currently many indications of a very successful launch.

Modern Warfare 2 technical issues drag user ratings down
The user ratings for the game on Steam are currently anything but outstanding. This is probably due to technical problems.
What’s next in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2?
The launch is just the first step on a longer journey, as the developers at Infinity Ward still have a lot to do with Modern Warfare 2. Last month, the team released a roadmap with the planned post-launch content for the next few weeks. Accordingly, the starting signal for Season 1 of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 will be given on November 16, 2022, at the same time Call of Duty Warzone 2.0 will be available. On December 14th there will be supplies for the “Special Ops” co-op mode in the form of several raids.
