Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is now the most played Call of Duty multiplayer game of the current console generation—within fifty days of its launch.
Infinity Ward’s latest award-winning first-person shooter outpaced all current-gen previous iterations of the franchise, surpassing them all in hours played, hours per player, and average daily players. Since its launch on October 24, 2019, gamers have engaged in almost 300 million multiplayer matches over more than 500 million hours.
At release, Modern Warfare featured a series of firsts for Call of Duty, including crossplay and cross-progression support, as well as the removal of Season Pass and delivery of new post-release content coming free to all players on all platforms.
“The momentum for Modern Warfare from day one has been incredible,” said Byron Beede, Executive vice President and General Manager for Call of Duty, Activision. “Players are having a great time and are continuing to engage across the multiplayer experience at the highest level in years. We’re also seeing new franchise highs for this console generation in hours played, hours per player and average daily players. It’s great to see the fan response to the hard work from our development teams led by Infinity Ward. Players are having a great time, and there’s much more to come as we continue to deliver new content.”
“We’re bringing our players together to play across all platforms and that continues today with a new wave of content coming to everyone for free,” said Patrick Kelly, co-studio head and creative director for developer Infinity Ward. “Starting today Vacant and Shipment are in full multiplayer rotation. Players can also jump into new Gunfight maps, play a new Special Ops mission and play fun new modes, starting with Cranked.”
