Modern Warfare 3 is the wildly successful sequel in the Call of Duty franchise that features over 50 million games sold and a whopping 3 billion dollars in sales. In recent weeks game analysts have speculated that the franchise has indeed reached it's peak. Partly due to competitors like Battlefield, but also due to the lagging economy.
