After its first weekend, Modern Warfare 2’s rocket-powered start was evident, with $800 million worldwide, surpassing 2011’s Modern Warfare 3 for the biggest first weekend in Call of Duty history. Xbox’s Phil Spencer stated that despite Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision Blizzard,
the Call of Duty brand will continue to exist on PlayStation platforms, thanks to the game’s record-breaking PlayStation Store launch. According to IGN, “this is sadly a weak follow-up to Modern Warfare 2019’s perfected take on a Call of Duty campaign, and an experience that is already fading in my mind.”
This was in reference to the campaign of Modern Warfare 2. The multiplayer mode greatly improved our impression of the game, leading us to proclaim, “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is the most fun I’ve had in CoD multiplayer in a good long time.”
