Activision also notes that the game has set franchise records for "most combined players, average hours per player and total number of hours played, on current generation consoles" - an oddly specific set of numbers, but still notable ones.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 officially launched on October 12, and since then the new Blackout battle royale mode has been dominating gamers' attention, alongside the always popular Zombies and fast-paced multiplayer.
Learn about everything in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, from winning Blackout matches, surviving and thriving in Zombies, and creating the best build for multiplayer. In a new press release, the publisher announced that Black Ops 4 sales figures have delivered over half a BILLION dollars in the game's opening weekend!
I remember the good ol' days when this promotion was first introduced and we all used to buy and redeem as many codes as we could for super long durations of Double XP.
"Black Ops 4 is off to a blockbuster start".
Black Ops 4 also has a Digital Deluxe edition on the Xbox Store which comprises the standard edition and the season pass, although it's cheaper than buying both separately. Through its first three days, PC digital sales and active players are up significantly from previous year.
Activision added in their statement: "Total players, hours per player, total hours played, and Twitch viewership based on Activision data".
ACTIVISION, CALL OF DUTY, and CALL OF DUTY BLACK OPS are trademarks of Activision Publishing, Inc. This has led to changes such as an easier looting system to make this one of the best player experiences for Battle Royale games. Not only did it trump Call of Duty: WWII in terms of player count, it also amassed a greater following than Call of Duty: Black Ops III.
