Call of Duty: Ghosts Worldwide Sales Pass $1 Billion
UPDATE: To clarify, the $1 billion is not just in consumer sales, but also those sold to retailers — ie, including the next gen versions, which aren’t available for purchase yet. It is still $1 billion in revenue for Activision.
On its first day of release, Call of Duty: Ghosts has already exceeded $1 billion in worldwide, retail sales, according to Activision. The publisher also expects the game to be the most successful launch title for the new generation of consoles.
Activision also highlighted the game’s number one ranking on Xbox Live, as well as the fact that the title was the most pre-ordered release at GameStop.
CEO of Activision Eric Hirshberg said:
“This is the must have launch title for the next generation of consoles, and we expect Call of Duty: Ghosts to be the most successful launch title for the Xbox One and PS4 by a wide margin. In fact, according to GameStop, Call of Duty: Ghosts is their most pre-reserved next gen title.”
Well, good for Activision. It’s nice to finally hear a positive headline about Ghosts. You know, after we found out that Ghosts has frame rate issues on the PS4, Activision issued a cease & desists to the developers of Ghosts’ FOV changer, Ghosts has no four-player local multiplayer on current-gen consoles, Ghosts won’t run on a PC with less than 6 GB of RAM for no good reason, and Ghosts was hacked before launch.
