Activision has revealed just how well Call of Duty: WW2 has done for itself since it launched on Friday, November 3, 2018.
Call of Duty: WW2 has managed to earn itself a whopping $500 million in Worldwide sales during its three-day opening weekend. This puts WW2 sales at twice that of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.
The game’s record breaking streak didn’t stop there. According to the company’s estimates, Call of Duty: WW2 managed to become the best-selling digital full game by units sold on first day of availability on PlayStation 4.
“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. “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.”
This of course would explain why the game suffered major server outages over the game’s opening weekend which caused the developers to remove certain aspects of the game’s multiplayer.
Call of Duty: WW2 is now available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
