Simple English

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is the sixth Call of Duty game in the series. It was released on November 10, 2009. It was the biggest entertainment launch in American history selling over 4.8 million copies and making over $550 million in its first five days of sales.[1] It took this honour from previous record holder, Grand Theft Auto IV.

The game offers three game modes. A campaign single-player mode (lasting about 6 hours), a "Special Ops" mode for replay value over the campaign where the player or players can collect stars (like in a Mario game), and a multiplayer mode (online and offline). The online mode is why most people play Call of Duty. The previous Call of Duty: Modern Warfare broke World of Warcraft's record of 11 million people online by 2 million on Xbox 360 alone.
