After all the controversy that has surrounded Black Ops 4 lacking a conventional single-player mode, that sure as hell didn’t stop the game from breaking all kinds of Day One digital records!
Call of Duty®: Black Ops 4 has set a new launch day record as the biggest day one digital release in Activision history. Digital sales for the first day of release broke the franchise record set in 2017 by Call of Duty®: WWII. Released Friday, Black Ops 4 also set a new PlayStation record for day one digital full game sales on PlayStation Store, globally. The title also quickly became the best-selling Activision Xbox One digital game on day one, globally. The first Call of Duty release ever on Blizzard’s Battle.net, the PC version of Black Ops 4 also delivered a new franchise high in which launch day PC digital sales more than doubled year on year.
In its first day of availability, the total number of people who connected online to play Black Ops 4 increased from last year’s release.
Said Activision in their official press for BLOPS4. Rob Kostich, EVP and GM of Call of Duty, continued to brag about their success.
Black Ops 4 is an incredible game, and the community’s response to it has been amazing. We have shattered multiple digital day one sales records, and the number of people who connected online on day one to play has grown year on year. But probably the most important thing is that the community is having so much fun across Multiplayer, Zombies and Blackout. We are so incredibly thankful for the community’s trust and support. This is just the beginning, it’s going to be an incredible journey with Black Ops 4.
For those of you who have the game, how is it? We’ve been hearing the Blackout mode adds a whole new layer of addiction to the Call of Duty formula!
