First Week Sales Puts It on Top
Call Of Duty: WWII had flown into the UK Software charts straight in at the number one spot this week. The game has not even been out for more than a week yet and it is smashing out those sales.
The UK chart From GFK only covers the physical sales of WWII that were 57% higher than Infinite Warfare was last year. Revenue was only up 21% this year because Infinite Warfare’s Legacy Edition was more expensive and sold more units. The split for the version type was 57% PlayStation 4, 42% Xbox One and 1% for PC.
Physical retail sales have not passed the launch record yet that was set in 2015 by Black Op’s 3 but digital sales have not been accounted for yet and these could push the sales of WWII to a new record.
