“Call of Duty: Black Ops 4” has set a new record for Activision with over $500 million in sales in its first three days of release – marking the biggest digital launch for Activision and surpassing last year’s “Call of Duty: WWII”.
“Call of Duty: WWII” reached the $1 billion after a month of release, it’s not clear when the new title will do that. At the same time, “Black Ops 4” set a new record for the lowest physical sales in the series in over a decade – the lowest since “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3”.
Reviews wise the game is hovering in the usual mid-high 80s mark on Metacritic that entries in the series commonly sit around. Reviews for the game talk about its three different components with the new Blackout battle royale mode getting highly praised, the zombies getting very good notices, and the multiplayer receiving a somewhat more soft reaction.
“Call of Duty: Black Ops 4” was released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC (via Battle.net) on October 12th – it marks the first game since “Call of Duty 2” to NOT be available on the Steam platform.
