On PlayStation®4, Call of Duty: WWII set a record as the best-selling digital full game by units sold on its first day of availability.
In its first three days on the market, Call of Duty: WWII surpassed $500 million, which is quite a staggering number if I do say so myself.
Activision also estimated that its game has made more than superhero movies Thor: Ragnarok and Wonder Woman made on their box office openings, combined. Our $500 million opening weekend was not only bigger than Thor: Ragnarok's, it was bigger than the opening weekends of both Thor and Wonder Woman combined.
The gripping, personal narrative, boots-on-the-ground multiplayer and terrifying nazi zombies mode attracted players worldwide resulting in the highest total connected users on current generation consoles and PC in Call of Duty history.
Last year, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare was nearly universally panned before launch due to its futuristic style of gameplay.
Ever since Call of Duty: WWII was announced people have been incredibly excited for the series to go back to its World War 2 roots.
Call of Duty: WWII's peak concurrent player count is five times higher than the series' last outing. "And we're committed to supporting the community with continuous improvements and new content".
Activision's annual Call of Duty: WW2 sales press release is in, and amongst the bombastic headlines are a couple of genuinely interesting tidbits.
"We knew they would become historians, that they would tackle it with authenticity, give it tremendous care and we also knew they would capture the unspeakable scale of World War II."
Despite breaking records left and right, Call of Duty WW2 is not the fastest-selling Call of Duty game of all-time, falling just short of Black Ops III's $550 million in its first three days.
