Activision once again has reasons to praise the Call of Duty series: Black Ops 4the newly released new title of this franchise, broke a new record, becoming the company’s best-selling game, in digital mode, on the first day of availability on the market (according to sales data recorded on October 12).
So on his first day, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 recorded the most digital purchases, globally, on the PlayStation Store in the entire history of this service. It was also Activision’s best-selling Xbox One digital game on the Xbox Store, on the day of release. Not least, the PC version of the game, available for the first time in series history only through the service Battle.netrecorded, on the first day, double digital sales compared to the previous title in the series – Call of Duty: WWII.
However, things did not go as well in that regard performance of retail versions of the game (physical editions, on disc, available in specialty stores). Thus, in the United Kingdom of Great Britain, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 disc sales were almost half of those of Call of Duty: WWIIregistering as such the worst start for a title in the series since Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare (2007) so far. Even in these conditions, Black Ops 4 occupied the leading place in the weekly sales chart in the UK, 58% of the sold copies being for PlayStation 4, 41% for Xbox One, the remaining 1% being reserved for the boxed edition for PC.
How about the local market, the situation seems completely different from the one in Great Britain, keeping the proportions of course. The Romanian representative of the Activision publisher confirmed for Go4games that first-weekend retail sales for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 surpassed the performances of all previous titles in the series during similar periodswith most Romanian customers opting for the PC and PlayStation 4 versions of the game.
