Activision announces massive opening for Call of Duty: WWII.
It looks like Call of Duty is back to being the sales behemoth it was after a lull last year. Call of Duty: WWII takes in more than $500 million in opening weekend sales over three days. On PS4, it set a record for full game digital sales. It also sold twice as many units at launch compared to Infinite Warfare. WWII sees the highest total connected users on current gen and pc platforms for the franchise. Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision, commented on the milestone:
“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. 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.”
