Call of Duty: WWII rakes in over a half billion dollars in first three days
Now that is a lot of dough.
The official sales numbers for Call of Duty: WWII's first weekend on the market have been revealed and it looks like going back to WWII was just what the franchise needed. According to Activision, Call of Duty: WWII surpassed $500 million in the first three days of release and might have even surpassed opening weekend box office numbers for Thor: Ragnarok and Wonder Woman.
Call of Duty: WWII has officially sold double what Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare sold in its first three days.
"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.”
Call of Duty: WWII released on November 3rd, for Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
