Earlier today, it was revealed that Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare took first place in the UK last week, with its entire week one beating the combined first week totals of Titanfall, Destiny, and Wolfenstein. Now, some more information about its UK launch has surfaced, including how the majority of copies were sold on PlayStation 4.
According to Gfk data obtained by Videogamer, Advanced Warfare sold 35% of its copies on PS4 at retail during launch, while 32% of them were on Xbox One. As for the other systems, 21% was on Xbox 360, with the PS3 only at 11%.
In an official statement from Activision to MCV about the game’s UK launch, they said it’s outselling Ghosts so far when retail and digital numbers are added together, based on GfK data and their internal estimates:
We are very happy with how much fans have embraced Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare as evidenced by an increase in combined retail and digital sales year-over-year in the UK.
While it’s still early, we think we have a great game that’s fun, engaging and will keep people playing for some time to come. Welcome to a new era of Call of Duty.
It’s important to note that Call of Duty: Ghosts didn’t launch on PS4 and Xbox One until a few weeks after PS3/360/PC, and Advanced Warfare went on sale a day earlier than normal thanks to the Day Zero Edition.
Activision should release full week one Advanced Warfare sales data soon.
