Dominating the PC Gaming World
Independent of the Steam figures, Modern Warfare 2 is making waves on other platforms as well.

The official PlayStation Twitter account congratulated Infinity Ward and Activision on the monumental success of the game’s launch on the PlayStation Store. While specific figures weren’t disclosed, UK PlayStation store data reveals that Modern Warfare 2 sales have soared by 42% compared to Vanguard, although still 61% lower than the groundbreaking success of Modern Warfare released in 2019. Furthermore, Modern Warfare 2 game disc sales on the PS5 have also been overwhelming, with 53% of orders shipped to devoted fans.
