The first Call of Duty release on Blizzard Battle.net, Black Ops 4 on PC continues to be significantly above last year, as the number of players is more than double year over year through its first three days.
The news of the Double XP weekend comes hot on the heels of the 500 million dollar announcement about the game's sales in the first three days since launch! That puts the latest release about $50 million behind its most recent predecessor at this point in its life.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is making money hand-over-fist, which isn't unexpected.
"We would also like to take this opportunity to talk about Featured Playlists in Black Ops 4 since we're doing things a little differently with playlists in this game", Treyarch continued. Reported earlier today, one player has captured a video of a Black Ops 4 hacker using an aimbot to eliminate his opponent. It also received a series record high of Twitch viewers for a Call of Duty opening weekend. Our digital sales results have been record-breaking across all platforms, and the overall performance strong.
Finally, there's Zombies. If you've bought a Call of Duty game recently, you'll find its format familiar, but Black Ops 4 does add some complication to the mix - elixirs and talismans bring temporary perks and power-ups.
As a surprise to no one, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 by developer Treyarch saw bonkers sales in its first three days at retail. The Blackout game mode is very enjoyable due to the fast-paced gunfights and much to do in a collage of previous CoD Black Ops maps.
The publisher also noted that the total number of players rose compared to past year, though it didn't provide any specific numbers. In our review of its Zombies mode, we called it "Great" saying, "Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Zombies is the most confident and welcoming iteration of the undead horde survival mode yet".
