Activision has announced that Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 generated over $500 million in revenue during its first three days on sale.
That isn’t quite as much as the $550 million 2015’s Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 made over its opening weekend, but it matches last year’s Call of Duty: WWII. Activision EVP and Call of Duty General Manager Rob Kostich said: “Black Ops 4 is off to a blockbuster start. Our player counts and hours played are up year over year, our viewership on Twitch has set new standards and is showing just how fun Blackout is to play and to watch, and the weekend results yet again put Call of Duty at that highest tier of entertainment. Our digital sales results have been record-breaking across all platforms, and the overall performance strong.”
As we reported, Black Ops 4 broke two day-one digital sales records and, while it may not be able to claim the mantle of most money-spinning iteration of Call of Duty ever, it can be counted as a success by any measure. That’s despite being the first Call of Duty game to ship without a single-player campaign.
Black Ops 4 has received plenty of critical acclaim, for freshening up the franchise with its Blackout Battle Royale mode and its technical quality. To find out more, head to its official website.
