Activision announced today that their recently released Call of Duty: WWII has sold extremely well, doubling the opening sales of Infinite Warfare worldwide in that same period last year. The game isn’t the fastest selling of the franchise, but it made a whole lot.
In a recent press release, the studio announced that the World War II-themed shooter made more than $500 million in just three days. That puts it just shy of the Black Ops III release, which managed $550 million in its opening weekend. Regardless of the series not breaking its own record, it’s an incredibly positive result for Activision, as the company also announced that the game is the best-selling digital full game download on the PS4 in its first day.
“We challenged our players to get their squads back together and they answered the call with the highest number of players we’ve ever seen on current gen consoles and PC,” said Activision CEO Eric Hirshberg.

World War II was the right move. Call of Duty reaches back to its roots to bring players an entry worthy of the series’ namesake. The campaign is emotional, multiplayer is classic, and Nazi Zombies is downright dark and terrifying. No matter which kind of player you are, there is something for everyone, whether it’s a cinematic story, a competitive and social multiplayer, or an immensely difficult battle against undead Nazis. Call of Duty: WWII is another incredible package of experiences, each distinct from the others, but tied together by the unifying themes of World War II that deserve your attention.
Call of Duty: WWII is available now.
