Each year, the Call of Duty iteration is particularly awaited by players, but for this year 2022, the title seemed to be experiencing much greater enthusiasm, probably thanks to the Modern Warfare effect, the most popular series. And according to early feedback, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is breaking records.
If it is difficult to judge the performance on PC, since in recent years the title was reserved for Battle.net, Activision-Blizzard’s platform, the developers have chosen this year to make it available on the platform of Valve, thus making it possible to measure statistics, while naturally increasing visibility. Thus, during the first weekend, a peak of 262,875 concurrent users was recorded., placing it among the franchise’s biggest hits and the most successful Call of Duty on Steam, far ahead of its pursuers.
To confirm this impression of success, the PlayStation Twitter account shared a message, stating that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is the ” best PS Store launch ever, including pre-orders and day one sales “..
Congratulations to @InfinityWard and @Activision on the biggest PlayStation Store launch EVER for a Call of Duty game (including preorders and day one sales).

We do not yet have figures to put on sales, but there is no doubt that they will be important, to allow the franchise to beat, once again, its record. Activision should communicate on this subject within a few weeks. In the meantime, remember that the title is available on PC, PlayStation and Xbox.
