‘Call of Duty: WWII’ Earns Over $500 Million Opening Weekend
Call of Duty: World War II made more than half a billion dollars worldwide in its first three days, according to publisher Activision Blizzard. The PlayStation 4 version reportedly set a record as the best-selling digital full game on its first day. Overall, Activision Blizzard says unit sales at launch doubled year-over-year globally.
“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. “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.”
