Blackout Player Count Tweaked And Other Black Ops 4 Changes

'Call of Duty: Black Ops 4' Racks Up $500 Million in Sales in 3 Days Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII earns over $500 million in first three days

Despite the slight sales slump, Black Ops 4 is still massively successful. To provide additional context, Activision also revealed that player numbers increased with Black Ops 4, surpassing that of Call of Duty: WWII and the previous installment in this sub-series, Call of Duty: Black Ops 3.

Having earned over half a billion dollars in its first three days of release, Black Ops 4 has set the record for the biggest digital launch for Activision, surpassing last year's Call of Duty: WWII, which eventually crossed $1 billion with a month of release.

Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII launched for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on October 12.

Finally, Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII delivered the highest level of Twitch viewership in franchise history in its first three days.

The record for this 500 million figure includes the full game digital and retail sales as well as any special or collector's edition including the season pass.

The Call of Duty game franchise might be 15 years old, but it's not showing any signs of a significant slowdown.

"Black Ops 4 is off to a blockbuster start". Total number of hours played per player are up tremendously, and PC players are up twofold from past year in the three-day launch period. Total players, hours per player, total hours played, and Twitch viewership based on Activision data. We've made a decision to roundup all the most current reviews from the major outlets in one spot for your reading pleasure. That isn't really saying very much though, given that many players abandoned the PC version of Call of Duty years ago. The game is rated M for Mature (Blood and Gore, Drug Reference, Intense Violence, Strong Language). "Sure, there isn't a traditional single-player campaign, but with the depth and breadth of what is there, Black Ops 4 doesn't need it".

See the press release from Activision below for more details.
