  • Call of Duty WWII Review- Going Back to Your Roots

First off, just like Assassin's Creed earlier today, Call of Duty: WW2's launch sales were double that of its series' previous entry.

The figure is sell-through to customers, not shipped, which is sold retail.

Call of Duty: WWII already dominated the United Kingdom charts, making it all the way to the top, but now Activision has revealed just how well it did worldwide.

Most studios will tout specific sales numbers, but Activision likes to talk about opening weekends because it lets them compare their launches to Hollywood movies. In comparison, the newest Call of Duty had a bigger opening weekend than Thor: Ragnarok and Wonder Woman combined!

Moreover, the game has successfully achieved the "highest total connected users on current generation consoles and PC".

US demands CNN or DirecTV sale to approve AT&T/Time Warner deal
A D.O.J. spokesman said: "The Department is committed to carrying out its duties in accordance with the laws and the facts". Korea Investment CORP owned approximately 0.08% of Time Warner worth $62,416,000 at the end of the most recent quarter.


This year is looking particularly strong for Activision, with Destiny 2 going strong on a brand new platform and a return to Call of Duty's long-missed roots.

The Call of Duty franchise shows no sign of slowing down with the debut of Call of Duty: WWII. Instead, Activision push them towards a more traditional boots-on-the-ground experience with the WWII-based game-something that players and consumers were clamoring for. Players are also being rewarded for viewing others open those loot boxes.

One may argue that Infinite Warfare doesn't deserve the large profits and this is unless they feel that it was Modern Warfare Remastered which allowed the game to make a dime.

Call of Duty: WWII apparently includes more historical references than just those from WWII with the game having a challenging "nuke" killstreak alluding back to one of the best games from the series.
