It seems as though Infinity Ward‘s Modern Warfare 2 is out breaking more records. Last month, the game’s publisher, Activision, proclaimed the game as their most preordered game ever. Well, this latest record may just top that.
GameStop, America’s biggest nationwide videogame retailer, touting over 6,000 stores, has announced Modern Warfare 2 as the most preordered game in the store’s 25 year history. The executive vice president for merchandising and marketing Tony Bartel recently spoke about Modern Warfare 2 breaking the nationwide store’s preorder record.
“By all indicators, we anticipate Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 will be the biggest entertainment launch of all time.”
“As of today, the number of pre-order reservations we’ve taken for the game is the highest for any title we’ve ever sold in our 6,200 store network.”
GameStop did not say what game Modern Warfare 2 topped. However, it is safe to assume that game may be Take-Two’s Grand Theft Auto IV. GTA IV, which launched in April 2008, managed to sell a whopping $500 million in its opening week.
