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

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

After a significant drop-off in sales performance for last year's Infinite Warfare, Call of Duty: WW2 has the series returning to form by scoring over half a billion in sales in its opening weekend. Regardless of the series not breaking its own record, it's an incredibly positive result for Activision, as the company also announced that the game is the best-selling digital full game download on the PS4 in its first day. To put that in comparison, that is twice the combined box office performance of Wonder Woman and Thor: Ragnarok during their opening three-day weekends.

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. "And we're committed to supporting the community with continuous improvements and new content".

That launch makes WWII the most successful Call of Duty game in five years, since the release of Black Ops 2. It's safe to say that 2018 should be a good year for Call of Duty. Players will enlist in the conflict by selecting from five iconic World War II Divisions, in a fundamentally new way to invest in your multiplayer career. Even if you've completed a match but have disconnected at the tail-end of it for whatever reason, it seems that Call of Duty WW2 doesn't log your progression and your reward will go unfulfilled. In addition to the core Multiplayer experience available for hands-on gameplay at E3, players will also play War Mode, developed in partnership with Raven Software, a narrative-based mode pitting Allied versus Axis soldiers in team-driven battles for key strategic objectives.
