Call of Duty: WWII has already sold twice as many copies as Infinite Warfare
To say that last year’s Call of Duty title, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, was polarizing would be a bit of an understatement. There was a strong negative reaction to Infinite Warfare when it was first revealed, a negative reaction which the game weathered (it is a Call of Duty game after all) but never fully recovered from, leading publisher Activision to admit that the game didn’t meet sales expectations. However, it would seem that the Call of Duty series has already bounced back, with last week’s release of Call of Duty: WWII reportedly having already sold twice as many copies as Infinite Warfare.
The report comes courtesy of a press release from Activision. In the release, Activision didn’t share specific sales numbers, but it did say that Call of Duty: WWII has “set a record as the best-selling digital full game by units sold on its first day of availability” on the PlayStation 4, and that its total sales numbers to date have already doubled the number of copies that Infinite Warfare sold. The release even went on to claim that Call of Duty: WWII garnered more opening day revenue than the opening weekend dollar amounts of the movies Wonder Woman and Thor: Ragnarok combined, though that’s not a terribly impressive record considering the average movie ticket costs roughly $8-10 while the price of a new console game is usually $60.
Call of Duty: WWII is available now for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. You can read our official GameCrate review for the latest from Sledgehammer Games here.
