In a major shock, a new report shows that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 was one of the bestselling games of August 2018 (a good nine years after its original launch).
As reported by GameSpot, it was unveiled by the NDP Group that Modern Warfare 2 was the 8th bestselling title of August 2018. This was a massive jump compared to July 2018 when it ranked as the 321st best-selling game of that month.
It has been speculated that the boost in sales is due to the game becoming backwards compatible on Xbox One during the end of August. When Black Ops II became backwards compatible in April 2017, Modern Warfare 2 instantly became the most demanded backwards compatible title for the Xbox One.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 was the sixth game in the series and was released on November 10, 2009 for all major consoles along with the PC. The game was highly praised at launch and is today considered one of the best entries in the series along with one of the best shooters.
