Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is off to a fast start. Activision announced in a press release that the newest Call of Duty instalment broke Activision’s record for the “biggest day one digital release” in the company’s history. Digital sales of the Treyarch-developed shooter surpassed the previous digital day one sales record-holder, 2017’s Call of Duty: WWII.
In addition to setting internal records at Activision, Black Ops 4 had the strongest day one digital full game sales on the PlayStation Store in its history. Black Ops 4 also broke the Xbox One record for best-selling digital game of all time for Activision. Both of these statistics cover the global market.
The game has also been a complete success on PC as well.
However, physical sales have gone down 50% in UK compared to the Call Of Duty:World War 2. Sales have gone down 56% to predecessor Call Of duty: Black Ops 3.
And as mentioned, Black Ops 4 had more players connecting online during its first day than Call of Duty: WWII last year, so more people are playing the game.
