Call of Duty is one of the longest-running and most popular video games of all time, so it should come as little surprise that its recent beta was a major success. Not to mention that the series now features cross-progression.
While Activision hasn’t revealed solid numbers as of yet, the publisher did announce via a press release that the Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer beta had the most players ever in the series.
Furthermore, it also had the most hours played as well as the most matches played across all formats.
Call of Duty: Warzone Mobile is also a success
Additionally, Call of Duty Warzone Mobile has also proven to be a massive success, despite not being released yet.
The publisher revealed that the mobile adaptation of Warzone was the fastest Activision Blizzard and King Mobile game to top 15 million pre-registrations on Google Play.
