Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is the first game in the franchise to offer crossplay, which is likely something that boosted sales of the title as even Infinity Ward credit it for engagement numbers. “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 co-studio head and creative director for developer Infinity Ward Patrick Kelly. With all of these gamers having access to the largest free content offering in franchise history, Modern Warfare will likely continue breaking records into the New Year.

“The momentum for Modern Warfare from day one has been incredible. 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,” said executive vice president and general manager for Call of Duty, Activision, Byron Beede. “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.”While the season one battle pass brings more content the game, we hope the success of Modern Warfare means less kill-to-death ratio watches in the future.
