In a press release from Activision, it’s revealed that the multiplayer in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is the most played in the series during the current console generation.

Since its release in October, over 500 million hours have been spent in the multiplayer mode, with around 300 million multiplayer matches played. Additionally, the game brought in $1 billion dollars worldwide. Modern Warfare is the first in the series to feature cross-play, cross-progression, and disposing of the season pass model.

“The momentum for Modern Warfare from day one has been incredible,” says Byron Beede, executive vice president and general manager for Call of Duty. “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.”


Back in November, it was announced that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is the best-selling game in 2019 so far. Additionally, it was the most downloaded game on the PlayStation Store in November.

“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,” says Patrick Kelly, co-studio head and creative director for Infinity Ward. “Starting today Vacant and Shipment are in full rotation. Players can also jump into two new Gunfight Maps, play a new Special Ops mission and play fun new modes, starting with Cranked.”

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is available now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
