Several classic Xbox 360 Call of Duty games have shot to the top of Xbox’s top paid games list, following recent improvements to matchmaking and an eye-catching sale.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, released in 2009, is currently the top paid game on Xbox, followed by 2012’s Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, 2010’s Call of Duty: Black Ops, and 2011’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. Treyarch’s World at War and Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 are also in the top ten.
These older titles are outselling big-hitters such as Red Dead Redemption 2, NBA 2K23, Hogwarts Legacy, Elden Ring, and even last year’s Modern Warfare 2.
Why are Xbox 360 Call of Duty games selling so well?
The reason for the sudden popularity of these classic Call of Duty games is likely due to several factors:
- The improvements to matchmaking have made it much easier to find matches in these games, even if you are playing on older consoles.
- The sale has made these games more affordable, making them a more attractive option for gamers on a budget.
- These games remain some of the best in the Call of Duty series, and fans looking for a nostalgia hit.
It is unclear how long this trend will last. For now, classic Call of Duty games are some of the most popular games on Xbox. If you are a fan of the series, or are looking for a new game, check out these classic titles:
