Black Ops 4 breaks Activision sales records

Call Of Duty Black Ops 4 Hands On 2

Call Of Duty Black Ops 4 Hands On 2

"The brand-new Supply Stream system now grants you new gear as you progress through tiers", Activision stated in the blog (via CharlieIntel). Remember this is raw full game sales worldwide and doesn't include purchases of microtransactions or other digital content.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 dropped this weekend, and gamers all over the world dug into their wallets and dropped $60 or more for the title.

Across all platforms, the number of players who connected Black Ops 4 online on the first day increased from Call of Duty: WWII, though Activision did not provide any details on how dramatic the increase was. Activision says that this was a success too - as it shifted more than double the launch day numbers of Call of Duty: WWII, which was available on Steam.

Activision loves the idea of pushing digital sales for many reasons, especially on PC where the game is exclusive to its fully-owned Battle.net storefront. Probably not, but it manages to integrate Battle Royale gameplay into the core Call of Duty experience with impressive seamlessness, while serving up reliable multiplayer and Zombies thrills as you'd reasonably expect.

Strategy RPG Assassin's Creed Rebellion announced for smartphones
Pre-registering sometimes grants you one or two free virtual items, but that doesn't appear to be the case here. If you take part in those, you can earn extra loot which may include "new rare Assassins ".

Black Ops pass maxes out what's possible in Black Ops 4.

Looking at sales data via GamesIndustry.Biz provides further illumination regarding the latest CoD launch, especially with regard to United Kingdom sales numbers.

Black Ops 4 - did it beat WWII or not? But despite digital sales skyrocketing, physical sales have been the lowest the series has seen in 11 years with them being almost 50% down from WWII.

With this being an early launch for the CoD franchise (they usually pop out in November) there could still be good physical sales and bundle sales to look forward to in the Xmas run-up.
