Call of Duty Series Sales Surpass 400 Million Copies
The video game industry has many juggernaut franchises, but perhaps none have become quite as consistent with continuous success as the Call of Duty series. The franchise is well known for its annual title releases and ubiquity with online multiplayer shooter gameplay. With their latest title Call of Duty: Warzone helping bring the classic series into the future with battle royale-based gameplay, the franchise has proven its endurance and lasting power quite well. The series has been trusted to top video game sales charts every year, and now that cumulative achievement has been recognized. Activision has announced that Call of Duty series sales have surpassed over 400 million copies.
Activision made the announcement regarding the Call of Duty series sales in a new blog post on the official Call of Duty website. According to Activision, over 400 million copies of premium Call of Duty games (i.e. full retail price copies of core console and PC COD titles) have been sold since the original Call of Duty released back in 2003 up until the most recent release of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War late last year. This did not include any Call of Duty games on mobile platforms or free-to-play versions of the console and PC games.
The blog post also mentions another major milestone that the Call of Duty series has reached. Call of Duty: Warzone has reportedly reached 100 million players worldwide. Thanks to Warzone being a free-to-play game, this has likely helped Call of Duty amass an audience for a singular game in ways like they never have before. The Call of Duty train has been chugging for quite some time now, and it seems that the franchise won’t be dying and needing to fight in the gulag any time soon.
