Activision has proudly announced that its latest title in the Call of Duty series, Modern Warfare 3 has hit the 1 billion dollar mark in just 16 days, again beating records.
It beat Avatar’s record of 17 days. Who doesn’t like Sam Worthington controlling an alien body?
[Activision] announced today that Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare™ 3 crossed the $1 billion mark in sales since its launch on November 8, 2011, according to Charttrack and retail customer sell-through information.
Highlighting the trend of interactive entertainment gaining a greater hold of audiences worldwide, the game achieved this milestone in just 16 days, eclipsing the record set in 2009 by the feature film “Avatar,” which reached the $1 billion milestone in 17 days.
I’m pretty sure Activision’s really happy with that money.
