Call of Duty Black Ops IIII Has Impressive Sales Numbers
The fact that Call of Duty Black Ops IIII has sold millions of copies already is not really all that unexpected. Many industry insiders have said for a while now that Call of Duty Black Ops IIII is expected to be the biggest selling game of 2018.
Even though, Call of Duty Black Ops IIII has only been on sale for a few days at this point. In this short time, it has broken a few interesting sales records and you better believe that Activision is shouting this from the rooftops.
One the PlayStation 4, it was revealed that Call of Duty Black Ops IIII was the fastest selling digital game on the platform. On Xbox One it did not quite break the all-time record, but it is the fastest selling Activision game on Xbox One of all time so that is impressive. The PC numbers are also very, very impressive. It was revealed that digitally, Call of Duty Black Ops IIII sold over double what Call of Duty WWII sold during the same period of time last year.
While the digital sales are very impressive and there are high fives all around. One stat that has come out of the UK is that Call of Duty Black Ops IIII’s physical sales were around half of what Call of Duty WWII sold last year. This could be showing that more people are willing to embrace the digital age of games and that they are not bothered about having a physical copy of the game?
No matter what, you have to be impressed with not just the first week sales numbers of Call of Duty Black Ops IIII. But also by the fact that this is a game which so far is pretty much universally praised. Not many people have had a bad thing to say about Black Ops IIII and this positive word of mouth is sure to help drive sales as we head into the holiday season.
