Activision announced Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II set another record for the franchise by topping $1 billion in worldwide sell-through in the first 10 days. The previous record was set by 2012's Call of Duty: Black Ops II, which took 15 days to earn $1 billion.

"Our developers, along with our entire Activision Blizzard team, are the backbone of our unwavering commitment to serve our hundreds of millions of players around the world," said Activision Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick.
