Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Earns $500 Million In Three Days

Call of Duty 'Call of Duty: Black Ops 4' Racks Up $500 Million in Sales in 3 Days
Allan Lindsey | 22 October, 2018, 05:03

The news of the Double XP weekend comes hot on the heels of the 500 million dollar announcement about the game's sales in the first three days since launch! For comparison, last year's Call of Duty: WW II hit $1 billion in sales, but only after it had been on the market 47 days. To provide additional context, Activision also revealed that player numbers increased with Black Ops 4, surpassing that of Call of Duty: WWII and the previous installment in this sub-series, Call of Duty: Black Ops 3.

That's significant as successful launches aren't enough to dub a game a success these days. We'll be sure to update this feature as that information becomes available, as well as provide more detail on the characters we're now missing.

"Tomorrow, we're releasing a substantial update to Black Ops 4 with a host of improvements, fixes, and additions across all modes, including new stability for Zombies". Our own Black Ops 4 review found that the three main modes were substantial enough to make up the difference, and the depth and breadth of the multiplayer offerings kept reviewer Kallie Plagge from missing the usual bombastic story mode.

Black Ops 4 sold over $500 million in the first three days of its release. It's also the best selling worldwide day one digital game for Xbox One.

UK PM reassures business leaders over Brexit
Many EU leaders "see the delays as a negotiating tactic by London to try to force concessions", Nelson reported. But she said she had found "a very real sense that people want that deal done" among her fellow leaders.

Activision added in their statement: "Total players, hours per player, total hours played, and Twitch viewership based on Activision data".

In a post to Reddit, Treyarch says that it's "continuing to update various game settings to ensure the best experience for all players across all platforms and modes", so it sounds like the company isn't done tweaking player counts for Blackout's various playlists. WWII's hype fizzed out rather quickly, while Blackout (and the rest of the multiplayer suite) will likely keep Black Ops 4 going for ages. The game is rated M for Mature (Blood and Gore, Drug Reference, Intense Violence, Strong Language).

"Black Ops is back!"
