Call of Duty: WWII made over half a billion dollars over the opening weekend. The newest iteration of the Call of Duty franchise has set a record for the best-selling digital full game by the units sold on its first day of availability.
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare sold 2,040,744 copies in its first weekend last year, but Call of Duty: WWII has doubled it in the first three days of release, claimed by Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision. He comments further saying that:
“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, 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.”
Eric Hirshberg has also stated that Call of Duty: WWII developers, Sledgehammer actually wanted to make a sequel to CoD: Advanced Warfare, which came out in 2014, but the team decided to go back to their own roots.
