Despite Modern Warfare 2 being released in November 2009, it continued to dominate the global games chart through to the end of 2009. According to MVC, GfK-ChartTrack has confirmed that Activision’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 sold nearly 12m units worldwide last year. More precisely, the game sold 11.86m units before 2009 came to an end.
Looking at the sales region-by-region, the US snapping up 8.82m copies, with the UK coming next with total sales of 2.8m units. The Japanese market fared worse, with sales only hitting 238k units.
It’s been over a month since 2009 came to an end, which means the total number of units sold for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 is well over 12 million.
