Like its predecessor, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is an unstoppable cash cow for both Activision and Infinity Ward. With such amazing success, and a carrot made of solid gold dangling in front of it, it may surprise some to learn that Infinity Ward may not be behind what will eventually be Modern Warfare 3.
Although it's still all rumor at this point, VG247 cites a source saying that Infinity Ward isn't working on MW3, but instead something "completely new."
VGChartz can exclusively reveal that according to our preliminary data, Modern Warfare 2 sold around 9.4 million copies in week one (5 days on sale) worldwide. This equates to over $600 million in revenue, beating the previous record holder Grand Theft Auto IV which sold 5.9 million units in the same timeframe last year and generated around $450 million in revenue (at a higher average selling price).
The scenes are familiar enough to even the casual gamer: tanks rumble by, choppers pass overhead, exchanging gunfire with troops on the ground; explosions erupt left and right, revealing the grimacing faces of soldiers fighting a faceless enemy. But in the upcoming “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2/Infamy” one thing stands out: the gallant mansion reduced to rubble doesn’t belong to some crazed separatist dictator hellbent on all kinds of nefarious acts. Instead, it’s the White House. The scenes of post-apocalyptic scenes of carnage play out not in some fictional town in eastern Europe, but in Washington D.C. itself.
