When Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare was first unveiled, it received a lot of hate from all over. Six months down the line, the game has released and has garnered relatively positive reviews from different publications. Despite receiving positive reviews, the game hasn’t been able to reflect positive sales figures in the UK.
Gfk Chart-Track, a sales tracking and research website mentioned that the sales of Infinite Warfare were down by a whopping 48.4% when compared to the launch of Black Ops 3.
However, Infinite Warfare still tops the sales chart in the UK in its first week. On the other hand, when the PS3 and Xbox 360 install base difference is compared to the PS4 and Xbox One, the sales are down by 43.6%.
However, Activision seems to be happy with sales figure in the UK because the game is still the biggest shooter launch of this year as they overtook Battlefield 1. Battlefield 1 has also seen a dip of 45% in sales compared to the last week but sits comfortably in the number two position followed by FIFA 17.
The release of the games in annual basis by the Call of Duty might be one of reasons behind the massive sales drop in the UK. Some of the fans were also furious over Activision’s decision to not sale Modern Warfare Remastered separately. They might have just decided against buying the bundle altogether.
Despite having a shaky start, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare should definitely see a spike in the sales and turn out be a financial success for Activision.
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is now available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
