The Activision and Infinity Ward are probably popping champagne at this time. The companies announced that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare yielded about $600 million (more than $ 2.4 billion at current price, with no fees and / or taxes) in just three days after its launch. This data surpasses any franchise game in the same period.

Activision has even more reason to celebrate. In digital media, this was the biggest debut in the publisher's history. On PlayStation Network, the shooter broke two records: the largest number of pre-sales and also the largest number of digital drives sold in three days on PS4.

On the PC, Modern Warfare also went very well. The title surpassed all Call of Duty games at launch. Activision-Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick praised the achievements. He stressed how important the franchise is to the company, and even compared it to the movie "Joker."

Call of Duty is again the best selling game of the year, proving its strong nature among consoles, PC, mobile and e-sports. In the first three days of its debut, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare more than doubled Joker's opening box office.

Finally, Kotick revealed that the shooter has more players and hours played in three days than any Call of Duty in the last six years. He also praised Infinity Ward's work and thanked the community that embraced the game.

In the first three days, Modern Warfare has more players and hours played than any other Call of Duty release in the last six years. And most importantly, our players are having fun. Congratulations to Infinity Ward and all the teams involved in this amazing game. We also want to thank the community. The release is just the beginning. There are still more things out there.

More data was released on Twitter. According to Niko Partners analyst Daniel Ahmad, the only games to reach $ 600m in three days were GTA V and Red Dead Redemption 2, titles from Rockstar Games.

Meanwhile, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is available for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
