Call of Duty: WWII Opening Weekend Bigger Than Thor Ragnarok's

When Activision showed the latest Call of Duty: WWII game off to actual World War II veterans, they gave approval on the project's authenticity (which says quite a bit).

Although seemingly sunshine and rainbows, Call of Duty: WWII has had its fair share of launch problems, mainly surrounding the connectivity of the game. Plus the added content hasn't even been released yet, but it's very clear Call of Duty fans were very excited that the franchise ditched the confines of space and went to the beaches of Normandy.

Activision, based in Santa Monica, California, said "Call of Duty" sales by past year had topped 250 million units, with revenue exceeding $15 billion. Activision had to convince the developer to make Call of Duty: WW2 instead. Overall unit sales double those of Infinite Warfare from the previous year. Point by headlining point; it sold over $500 milllion worldwide over its opening weekend, it sold twice as many units in the same period as Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare previous year, it provided Call of Duty's highest total connected users on current generation consoles and PC, and it broke digital full game day one sales records on the PS4.

The return to a period setting was planned years ago, but came at a ideal time for the series after players and critics reacted poorly to last year's Infinite Warfare and its descent into out-and-out science fiction.

Call of Duty Infinite Warfare may not be the best rated title in the Call of Duty franchise but it is among the top earners on the financial end. Call of Duty: WWII is a huge success already, garnering $500 000 000 in sales in its opening weekend alone.
