Actvision today revealed that Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 has generated an impressive sum of money.
In it’s first three days of release, Black Ops 4 has generated more than $500 million across physical and retail sales as well as Black Ops Pass purchases. The game has also seen more combined players, average hours per player, and total number of hours played than any other Call of Duty game released on the current-gen consoles. Black Ops 4 has performed especially well on PC where the number of players doubled compared to Call of Duty: WWII. It’s also crushing last year’s records on Twitch.
“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.”
Activision did not release any sales details or how the game is performing compared to the last-gen titles. Black Ops 4, however, did not gross as much as Call of Duty: Black Ops II did. In a span of 24 hours, Black Ops II had already generated $500 million in sales, not including the Season Pass. We’ll have to wait for more solid sales figures from the publisher.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is available now on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
