400 Million – A Monumental Milestone for the Gargantuan Franchise
The Call of Duty video game franchise has just reached 400 million game sales. This was announced by Activision, the series’ publishers.
The first installment in the Call of Duty series was released back in 2003 when no one expected it to become the worldwide phenomenon it is today. The massive success the game has experienced is in big part thanks to the continuous developer support and the yearly release of new additions to the series. The fan dedication to buying all those paid titles attests for the franchise’s strength.
The trends seem to be in the game’s favor. Call of Duty: Warzone, a free title in the same series, reached 100 million players in a little over a year since release. In celebration, Activision released several in-game statistics: in a year 26 billion parachutes have been destroyed, 29 billion matches played and 8 billion fights have taken place in the Gulag.
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, on the other hand, is the latest paid title in the franchise and it also has enjoyed massive success. In just half a year after release, it has entered the list of top 20 best-selling games in the United States.
The franchise will likely continue to grow and see the release of new titles, both premium and free to play. Now the latest two instalments, namely Warzone and Black Ops Cold War will enter their third season that will add new content and rekindle the hype. Players will get new operators, seasonal events, zombie content and a battle pass.
