Call of Duty 4 has been one of the biggest hits in the gaming industry in the past few years. They have just recently reached 15 million online players. 11 million from Xbox live, and 4 million from the PSN. So this isn’t even including users who don’t log into Xbox Live, PSN, or bought the Wii version. It is also excluding the entire PC gaming market as well. You’d think they would post numbers of sold copies as they’d be much more impressive.
The game continues to rank atop the Xbox Live weekly played games. It’s not hitting the top, but it is challenging GTA IV, Halo 3, and it recent Call of Duty 5 game. When will this game decline? Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 is due sometime this fall. It will be very similar to Call of Duty 4 Modern Warfare with some changes for the better hopefully. Will it take the release of the next game in the series to kill it or are we going to get another big game that will take it down? Call of Duty 4 is unstoppable.
