While Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare sold well enough for Activision to consider it a success, many fans felt burned out by the futuristic theme that the game had to offer, instead wishing for something a little more on the traditional side. Fortunately, their wish got granted this year with Call of Duty: WWII, and it appears that they’re responding in kind by giving the game better sales.
Eurogamer recently reported that WWII’s sales are through the roof compared to Infinite, going up 57 percent over what 2016’s offering was selling at. The game easily managed to conquer the top spot of the British sales chart, leaving Assassin’s Creed Origins in a second place position.
That said, though, WWII may be doing well, but it’s still not quite the best Call of Duty seller. The report also indicates that the debut of the franchise couldn’t quite match up with the 2015 release Call of Duty: Black Ops III, with its launch numbers showing higher than 48 percent over Infinite. That said, these numbers are still impressive.
We haven’t heard on U.S. sales numbers as of yet, but we’re hearing that the game has some big buzz since its release last Friday, and should have no trouble dominating the top spot of the charts this week, even with new competition coming from the likes of Need For Speed Payback and Sonic Forces. And those sales will likely continue leading into Black Friday, as Call of Duty could easily be a big seller during the annual sales day.
