'Modern Warfare 2' takes $1bn since launch
Modern Warfare 2 has made $1bn (£614m) since release last November.

Activision CEO Bobby Kotick said that the figure "exceeded expectations" and highlighted the power of the franchise.

"Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 has exceeded our expectations and shattered theatrical box office and video game records," he said.

"There are only a handful of entertainment properties that have ever reached the $1bn mark, which illustrates the power of the Call of Duty franchise and mass appeal of this game."

The total was predicted by analysts Lazard Capital Markets prior to the game's release.

The title smashed the day one sales record, selling 1.23 million copies in the first 24 hours alone.
