News - Activision Is Worried. Warzone 2's "historically" Bad Sales Figures Revealed (cod Warzone 2 Sales Ranks)


I did a article recently where we learned that in the United Kingdom, Modern Warfare 3's sales were down 38% compared to what Modern Warfare 2's sales were the previous year, which is not a good sign. Well, now that we have all the information coming in from the United States, this will be coming from the NP D group.

You guys may have heard about them before, but apparently they've rebranded themselves as Cirana. Don't make me pronounce things, man. I'm bad at that, but regardless, we have the sales figures, we have the stats, we know what happened in the United States when it comes to Call of Duty, and the news is not really that good.

Honestly, it's interesting right now, so Call of Duty itself is down this year compared to what it's been in previous years, which is interesting. We talked about that a lot in my previous article. I definitely think the whole perception of Modern Warfare 3 basically being a big DLC was not exactly the best selling point for the game, regardless of the fact that they fixed so many things about the game, such as the mini map, dead silence, and dead silence and carry forward being a thing.

All those things are fantastic, but in general, I feel like the marketing and buzz surrounding Modern Warfare 3 were overwhelmingly negative. And as such, Modern Warfare 3 apparently is not doing nearly as well, so let's just go ahead and jump into this here when it comes to the year 2012. Modern Warfare 3 is the second-bestselling game in the United States, which you may think isn't so bad, but number two has been pretty freaking good ever since 2010.

This is the third time that's ever happened, and the other two times that happened were when Rockstar put out a massive game. That's pretty much it since GTA 5 came out in 2013. I think it was then that was the number one selling game in America. Call of Duty was number two, and then when Red Dead Redemption 2 came out, that was the best-selling game in America, and Call of Duty was number two.

Other than that, every single year, Call of Duty has been number one, but this year, Hogwarts Legacy, which people love, is freaking Harry Potter. People are going to buy Hogwarts Legacy, and apparently it's killing it on the switch right now regardless. This is the third time ever since 2010. That Call of Duty was not the bestselling game, which is interesting; the sales figures are down really badly over there in the United Kingdom, and when it comes to the United States, it's not even the best-selling game this year, which is kind of crazy now.

When it comes to the month of November, which of course is when Modern Warfare 3 came out, we have some good information coming in regarding player engagement. This is how many people are actually playing the game we have for the Xbox as well as the PlayStation. As you guys can see, Call of Duty is number two in November.

I mean, Hogwarts Legacy came out months and months and months ago, so as such, it's a story game. People are going to play it a bunch when it first comes out; they might play through it a couple of times, but typically, a game like that does not have the staying power of online article games. Here, between the Xbox and the PlayStation, the games are pretty much the same.

You know, Fortnite's number one, obviously, is killing it. K is pretty popular for playing GTA 5 online, especially with all the GTA 6 stuff being announced. Of course we're going to be seeing a lot more people on GTA 5, but then again, that game has always had a pretty massive player base. You have games like Madden have 2K, like all The Usual Suspects are here, but going back to it, it is interesting that for the third time, pretty much ever.

Call of Duty was not the bestselling game in the United States. Again, I really do think it goes back to the entire narrative, the entire perception, that Modern Warfare 3 has all been remastered. It maps people thinking the game was supposed to be just a big DLC, and then they give you a full premium title.

I didn't discuss it as much in my article as I probably should have, but I think we might be starting to see player fatigue. When it comes to skill-based matchmaking, we've had it for years and years now. In fact, we're still waiting. I forgot about this till right now, but remember when Activision basically came out and they're like skill-based matchmaking?

It's something we've been working on for years and years and years, and we're going to be talking about it more in depth after season 1 comes out. Well, season one's been here for a bit. Where's our skill-based matchmaking talk? I think that's definitely true. I mean, the match I got in here, like the footage of this article.

It's so weird, so skill-based matchmaking is obviously the thing that can mess with your connection. Freaking packet bursts and all that stupid nonsense connect me to servers that are forever away, but the thing is, like the people in my lobby, they aren't even all that good, like I almost got a nuke in this lobby, and I am not a nuke player.

You guys watch me cry that loud, but like, the people in the lobby were not that good, but the connection was so bad. You may be watching the article and thinking, Man, is something wrong with my phone or is there something wrong with my monitor right now? It's like, No. The gameplay is just that skippy and that bad because of packet burst and all that stupid nonsense.

In fact, I think I might be reached out to for the truth. Soon, we might be testing out packet burst in a article or at least trying it out, like having me join his Billy Go 57 account because he says he never has packet burst and he never has these connectivity issues, whereas I do, and it's really freaking frustrating, so we're going to try to get to the bottom of that.

But the gameplay, like skillbase matchmaking, despite the fact that the people on the other team aren't that good, they still matched me, like, well, far away from where they should have. And as such, my connection is horrible, but that's only one aspect of skill-based matchmaking; we have all the other aspects that we've discussed to death.

Here on my channel, we've all heard about it; we've all talked about it. I think fans are getting tired of that. You know, a brand new Call of Duty can come out, and it has all the bells and whistles. You have the maps you want to play on and you want to relevel up, even though for some reason they still cap our levels, which makes no sense to me whatsoever.

You know you have new guns to play with. You have the new mastery camos to go for a new rank season. If that's your thing, you might want to level up your guns for War Zone. If that's your thing, like there's always a lot of buzz and a lot of hype around the new Cod, but after the honeymoon phase is over and you've leveled up your guns a little bit and you've experienced the game a little bit.

Today we take a look at new sales figures revealed for Modern Warfare 3. this is only the THIRD time this has happened in franchise history.
