Well, it seems 2017 has been a very good year for Activision, as the publisher just sent out a press release announcing that Call of Duty: WWII and Destiny 2 are the two top selling console games in North America!
For COD: WWII, Activision has announced that the Sledgehammer Games-developed title is the biggest console digital launch in Activision publishing history, and is the top selling console game of 2017 in North America! COD: WWII has already surpassed $1 billion in sell-through (sold, not shipped) worldwide since its launch on November 3, 2017.
Destiny 2 isn’t too far behind as Activision has announced that Destiny 2 has outsold the first Destiny and is the biggest PC launch in Activision’s publishing history.
To put the cherry on top, Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy has also been a huge success, as Activision claims it’s the no. 1 remastered collection in PS4 history!
Check out an excerpt from the press release below.
Activision has delivered the No. 1 and No. 2 top selling console video games in North America this year (based on revenues), continuing a string of chart-topping title releases in 2017. At No. 1, Call of Duty®: WWII, which has already surpassed $1 billion in sell-through worldwide since its launch last month, is the top selling console video game of the year in North America, extending Call of Duty®’s run as the No. 1 top selling console video game franchise in North America for nine consecutive years, based on revenue. Developed by Bungie, Destiny 2 secured its status as the No. 2 highest selling console video game in North America for the year, based on revenue, while also becoming the biggest PC launch in Activision Publishing history, based on units. Additionally, Crash Bandicoot™ N. Sane Trilogy, is the No. 1 top selling remastered collection in PS4 history. (i)¹
I gather a congratulations are in order, but I doubt Activision will be able to hear us over the piles of money dropping on them, no?
