Activision officially launched Call of Duty: Black OPS 4 last week and it set a new record on its launch day, as the biggest day one digital release in company history.
Digital sales for the first day of release broke the franchise record set in 2017 by Call of Duty: WWII. It also set a new PlayStation record for day one digital full game sales on PlayStation Store, globally. The title also quickly became the best-selling Activision Xbox One digital game on day one, globally. And finally, the PC version of Black Ops 4 was a new franchise high in which launch day PC digital sales more than doubled year on year.
“Black Ops 4 is an incredible game, and the community’s response to it has been amazing. We have shattered multiple digital day one sales records, and the number of people who connected online on day one to play has grown year on year,” said Rob Kostich, EVP and GM, Call of Duty. “But probably the most important thing is that the community is having so much fun across Multiplayer, Zombies and Blackout. We are so incredibly thankful for the community’s trust and support. This is just the beginning, it’s going to be an incredible journey with Black Ops 4.”
