Advanced Warfare has Record Setting Launch


 CoDAW

Whether you love it or hate it, Call of Duty is still the king of sales.

Activision, the publisher of the Call of Duty series, announced today that their newest iteration, Advanced Warfare, has broken new records. While not quite at the numbers of the Modern Warfare series, the company claims that Advanced Warfare represents the “biggest entertainment launch of 2014.”

First-week sales were confirmed to be much higher than those of “Ghosts,” the last entry in the series. In addition, with backup from Xbox Live and Playstation Network, the game has apparently been the highest selling digital launch of any game released in the year the Xbox One and PS4 have been out on the market.

Activision also announced that the series has a lifetime sales number of over $10 billion dollars, which the publisher mentioned was higher than the combined totals of ticket sales for the Hunger Games, Transformers, Iron Man and Avengers combined. Considering the success of those series, that is a staggering fact.

Actual sales numbers were not provided by Activision.

Are you a part of these sales numbers or have you given up on the golden “FPS standard?” Let us know in the comments below!

    I have always been a bigger fan of Call of Duty’s campaign. Their multiplayer was never a huge interest to me. I am tired of the constant Call of Duty comparisons. I do however have the utmost respect for their marketing. The numbers speak for themselves.

      I have always loved the campaigns of CoD, even for Ghosts (just less so than the others,) but it’s the multiplayer that keeps them coming back for the next game.

      Maybe at some point they’ll make the campaigns a little longer?
