Despite not having a single player campaign, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is still earning lots of money from consumers. Activision has announced the game already earned over $500 million in its first three days it went on sale earlier this month!
While it did not break Grand Theft Auto V’s record from 2013, it is still a huge achievement for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. The game has been getting good reviews from critics and many fans have dived into its many game modes already. You can read more from the official press release below.
Activision’s Call of Duty®: Black Ops 4 has sold more than $500 million in sell-through worldwide in its first three days of release as the total number of players climbed from last year. Through its first three days of release, Black Ops 4 set a new Call of Duty® franchise record for most combined players, average hours per player and total number of hours played, on current generation consoles. The combined number of Black Ops 4 players across its three modes of play during those first three days tops both last year’s Call of Duty: WWII, as well as Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 (single player, multiplayer and zombies), respectively, for the same period of time. 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. Additionally, based on minutes watched, the title delivered the highest level of viewership through launch weekend on Twitch in franchise history.
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,” said Rob Kostich, EVP and GM, Call of Duty. “Our digital sales results have been record-breaking across all platforms, and the overall performance strong. We’re really excited about Black Ops 4’s momentum. There’s much more to come, we’re just getting started.”
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is out now for the PC, PS4 and Xbox One. It features Multiplayer, Zombies and the battle royale mode called Blackout.
