Despite its launch issues and continuous server woes, Call of Duty: WWII had a very good opening weekend, garnering over $500 million in sales and moving twice as many units as last year’s Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.
According to a press release from Activision, Call of Duty: WWII has already set a record as the best-selling digital full game by units sold on PlayStation 4, and it has reached similar heights of success on PC and Xbox One. Speaking in the press release, Activision CEO Eric Hirshberg also said that Call of Duty: WWII has played host to the highest number of concurrent players on a current-gen Call of Duty title so far. Call of Duty: WWII’s opening weekend revenue gains also apparently outpaced the combined opening weekend of the recent film releases Wonder Woman and Thor: Ragnarok, though that’s slightly less impressive when you consider that a single new copy of Call of Duty: WWII retails for sixty bucks while a single movie ticket’s price is usually in the range of nine to eleven dollars.
Call of Duty: WWII is now available for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
