Call of Duty: WWII Gets $500 Million Worldwide After Launch

Call of Duty WW2

The company announced today that Call of Duty: WWII bought in over $500 million in worldwide sales during its opening weekend. This has resulted in twice as many units be sold at launch as previous year, over $500 million in sales, and a day one record for digital sales on PS4.

The Call of Duty franchise shows no sign of slowing down with the debut of Call of Duty: WWII.

Just yesterday, we reported that Call of Duty: WWII had a pretty big first week of release in the UK.

Most studios will tout specific sales numbers, but Activision likes to talk about opening weekends because it lets them compare their launches to Hollywood movies.


Anyway, back to the press release - COD: WW2 earned half a billion dollars in sales, Activision boasted, which is apparently more money than Thor: Ragnarok and Wonder Woman's openings combined.

Activision CEO Eric Hirshberg has revealed that developers Sledgehammer Games had planned to release a sequel to their 2014 Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare in 2017. "And we're committed to supporting the community with continuous improvements and new content".

Call of Duty: WWII already dominated the United Kingdom charts, making it all the way to the top, but now Activision has revealed just how well it did worldwide. A sequel to their 2014 "Advanced Warfare", the first Call of Duty game to feature an advanced movement system with the addition of "Exo-suits". Call of Duty: WWII's new Headquarters social hub, which allows gamers to interact and even watch others open lootboxes, and the new Nazi Zombies multiplayer mode are paying off quite well: these modes pulled in more connected users on consoles and PC than any other Call of Duty game.
