  • Call of Duty

The first Call of Duty release on Blizzard Battle.net, Black Ops 4 on PC continues to be significantly above last year, as the number of players is more than double year over year through its first three days. That puts the latest release about $50 million behind its most recent predecessor at this point in its life.

Rob Kostich, EVP and GM of Call of Duty also gave the following statement to talk about the success the Black Ops 4 has found so far in avenues other than just sales. We're really excited about Black Ops 4'smomentum.

Fans have been eager for more Call of Duty: Black Ops, which has become one of the most popular subseries of games in the overall franchise. It's above both Call of Duty: WWII and Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 (single player, multiplayer and zombies) during the same amount of time. In the first three days on PC, the "number of players is more than double" the same period for last year's game. It also received a series record high of Twitch viewers for a Call of Duty opening weekend.

Finally, on PlayStation alone, Black Ops 4 set a global, new day one record on the PlayStation Store for digital full game sales. The three settings are typically over the top and amusingly elaborate (Ancient Rome, the Titanic just after it hit the iceberg, and Alcatraz), as are the boss-zombies which start spawning after you've survived a healthy number of rounds.

Although Activision has enjoyed strong digital sales and engagement with Black Ops 4's launch, the game's combined weekend sales fail to breach records set by previous Black Ops games. "Black Ops 4 is designed as a more event-driven game, and the Featured playlists will serve to rally the community around different ways to play each week". Total players, hours per player, total hours played, and Twitch viewership based on Activision data.
