Call of Duty Black Ops 4 is selling very well digitally. In this regard, Activision reported that in a press release that the newly released CoD Black Ops 4 title set a new digital sales record, breaking any of the Activision’s previous records. Thus, Call of Duty Black Ops 4 becomes the best-sold game of the company, breaking the record for the “biggest day one digital release.”
Now, in the second place, there is the Call of Duty WWII, the game published by Activision in 2017. Also, according to the press release, the new Call of Duty Black Ops 4 is selling very well, digitally, on both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Additionally, the new installment in the franchise is also available on PC via Battle.net. According to their official statistics, CoD Black Ops 4 is also successful on Windows 10 platforms. As reported by Battle.net, the new Black Ops title sold by about 100 percent higher in its first day, in comparison to the Call of Duty WWII.
Call of Duty Black Ops 4 Sets A New Digital Sales Record, But Not On Physical Copies Sales
On all the platforms on which it is available, CoD Black Ops 4 established new digital sales records, outperforming previous titles published by Activision, including the last year’s Call of Duty WWII. However, apparently, the game scores better digital sales, while the physical copies sales are at their lowest, at the moment.
For example, according to GI.biz, Call of Duty Black Ops 4 physical copies sales during its first days out were down by about 50 percent in comparison to Call of Duty WWII and 59 percent lower when compared to its predecessor, Black Ops III. Also, it scored lower physical sales than CoD 4 Modern Warfare.
However, this new figures shouldn’t be a surprise for us since the online has evolved significantly since the release of Call of Duty 4 Modern Warfare or Black Ops 3. Now, almost every game in the world is available digitally, which, in reality, is a much faster and reliable option than physical copies.
