Activision announced that Call of Duty: WWII sales have surpassed over $500 million during the first three days of launch, beating out highly anticipated Thor: Raganork and Wonder Women’s opening weekend sales.

Activision also announced that Call of Duty: WWII set a new record on the PS4 Store: Call of Duty: WWII is the best-selling digital full game by units sold on its first day of availability on PS4 store ever. Activision has also stated that Call of Duty: WWII has sold more than 2 times the amount of copies at launch compared to Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’s launch last year.

Call of Duty: WWII launch has resulted in the “highest total connected users on current generation consoles and PC in Call of Duty history,” Activision says.

Activision CEO says that the teams at SHG are committed to supporting the community with ‘continuous improvements and new content.’ 

“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 Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision. “Call of Duty: WWII returns the franchise to its roots and the results are incredible, selling twice as many units in its opening weekend as last year, and setting the day one record for full-game downloads on PlayStation 4. Our $500 million opening weekend was not only bigger than Thor: Ragnarok’s, it was bigger than the opening weekends of both Thor and Wonder Woman combined. And we’re committed to supporting the community with continuous improvements and new content.”
