According to new data, Call of Duty: Warzone 2 managed to surpass an incredible 25 million players just five days after launching.

Modern Warfare 2, for example, topped $800 million in sales revenue in only three days, making it the best entertainment launch of 2022.

The recent launch of Warzone 2.0 primes the brand for even more record-breaking accomplishments. And the latest news out of Activision suggests someone is already popping champagne in celebration.
