If you haven’t been playing Call Of Duty Black Ops 4 then you’ve probably at least watched someone stream it – it’s one of the biggest games of the year (at least until Red Dead Redemption 2 comes out).
Along with surpassing even Activision’s expectations and smashing sales records left right and centre, it’s also raked in more money than you could shake a stick at. Or shoot an AK at.
It’s been reported that the game’s sales have already surpassed the $500 million dollar mark across the globe, showing that no – COD definitely is not dead.
It’s not the most money that we’ve seen COD bring in at launch though, with Black Ops 3 earning $550 million in the same time frame, and WWII hitting the same $500m mark as Black Ops 4.

Along with its massive money pull, the game has also enjoyed more active players in its first three days than both COD: WW2 and Black Ops 3, with a press statement from Activision confirming that – at launch – more people have played the new game’s multiplayer, Zombies and Blackout modes than the other two titles’ single player, multiplayer and Zombies modes.
According to reports, the game is also responsible for setting a new record for Activision, for most digital downloads at launch, achieving the biggest numbers in the history of the company.
Well it has to be said BO4 is probably the best CoD I’ve played. I wasn’t going to get it but I trusted @Treyarch because I prefer the Black Ops series and have always enjoyed their games. pic.twitter.com/JGbTLGUzGN

The good news doesn’t end there though, as the game has also become the fastest-selling digital game in PlayStation history for titles sold on the PlayStation Store, and it’s Activision’s biggest digital launch for Xbox as well.
