Call of Duty: MW3 Makes $1B in 16 Days
« on: December 12, 2011, 09:06:54 AM »
It took Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 just 16 days to do more than $1 billion in sales, making it the biggest entertainment launch of all time, Activision announced Monday.

By comparison, it took Call of Duty: Black Ops, the predecessor to MW3, nearly two months to surpass the $1 billion mark.

Modern Warfare 3 went on sale on Nov. 8 and it had a record-breaking first day, selling more than 6.5 million units for a total of $400 million in sales. Activision said it broke the record of 5.6 million units and $360 million in sales set last year by Black Ops.
Not only has it bested Black Ops, Modern Warfare 3 has also made $1 billion faster than James Cameron's 2009 blockbuster "Avatar", which reached the same milestone in 17 days.
