Activision today announced that as at June 30th, 2010, the total sales of all map packs for the Call of Duty franchise have surpassed 20 million units. Call of Duty remains the number 1 best-selling first-person action franchise in the US and Europe, according to the NPD Group, Charttrack and GfK.
Quoted by Activision CEO, Robert Kotick:
“The Call of Duty franchise is unique in the world of entertainment and delivers one of the best multiplayer experiences ever,”
