Call of Duty: WW2 Makes $500 Million in First Weekend

Call of Duty: WW2 Makes $500 Million in First Weekend

Today Activision confirmed that Call of Duty: WWII has generated over $500 million in sales earnings through its first three days of availability, "toppling popular theatrical box office openings for Thor: Ragnarok and Wonder Woman combined", the company touts.

But the team at Activision, who had seen Call of Duty's meteoric growth since it's inception 15 years ago, sensed that fans in 2017 would desire a return to the title's roots; historical gameplay set in the WWII era, which all of the first 6 titles in the series had been set. “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 past year, and setting the day one record for full-game downloads on PlayStation 4.

Just yesterday, we reported that Call of Duty: WWII had a pretty big first week of release in the UK.

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare saw huge backlash over its decision to take the shooter series to space and sold poorer than previous entries as a result. "And we're committed to supporting the community with continuous improvements and new content".

"We knew they would become historians, that they would tackle it with authenticity, give it tremendous care and we also knew they would capture the unspeakable scale of World War II."

There's no question that gamers and publisher Activision were disappointed with the 2016 launch of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.

Have you picked up Call of Duty: WWII yet? It is also the fastest-selling COD game of this console generation (via GamesIndustry.biz) over its four predecessors that were available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
