Massive Launch Weekend Sales Recorded
Activision has today announced that Call Of Duty: WWII has made over $500 Million in just its first three days of from launch on November 3.
“Call of Duty: WWII returns the franchise to its roots and the results are incredible, selling twice as many units in its opening weekend as last year, and setting the day one record for full-game downloads on PlayStation 4. Our $500 million opening weekend was not only bigger than Thor: Ragnarok’s, it was bigger than the opening weekends of both Thor and Wonder Woman combined. And we’re committed to supporting the community with continuous improvements and new content.”
On top of that as well it broke new records on the PlayStation Store and set a record as the best-selling digital full game by units sold on its first day. If your interested, overall unit sales at launch doubled year-over-year globally, compared to Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’s launch last year.
Activision says Call of Duty: WWII launch has resulted in the “highest total connected users on current generation consoles and PC in Call of Duty history,”.
This in turn though has lead to issues over the launch weekend with server problems but Activision CEO says that the teams at SHG are committed to supporting the community with ‘continuous improvements and new content.’
“We challenged our players to get their squads back together and they answered the call, with the highest number of players we’ve ever seen on current gen consoles and PC,” said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision.
