With more and more gamers opting to buy games digitall than on disc, it’s only a matter of time that new records will be made. That seems to be the case for Treyarch’s Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War digital sales, as the game’s first day digital sales number is now the highest in franchise history!
While Activision refrained from giving exact numbers just yet, Anna Malmhake, Managing Director, EMEA, Activision Blizzard, issued a statement regarding the milestone.
Friday’s release of Black Ops Cold War set a new record as the highest first day digital sales worldwide in franchise history. Thank you to Call of Duty players everywhere. Launch is just the start This new title is releasing into the largest and most engaged Call of Duty community ever. We look forward to delivering an incredible amount of free post launch content, events and support for the entire community as Black Ops Cold War evolves just as we did last year following the release of Modern Warfare.
