'Call of Duty: WWII' Debuts to Half a Billion Dollar Launch Weekend

Activision announced today weekend sales for Call of Duty: WW2 surpassed $500 million worldwide. This is the "sell-through worldwide" figure, meaning that the total includes games sold to customers across the world, rather than those copies of the game just sitting on store shelves. In a press release sent to GamesBeat, Activision notes that this opening tops the starting weekends for Thor: Ragnarok and Wonder Woman combined.

Activision's Call of Duty: WWII keeps reinvigorating the numbers of the franchise around the world, this time debuting at number 1 with strong sales according to Media Create.

One may argue that Infinite Warfare doesn't deserve the large profits and this is unless they feel that it was Modern Warfare Remastered which allowed the game to make a dime.

Call of Duty: WWII's new Headquarters social hub, which allows gamers to interact and even watch others open lootboxes, and the new Nazi Zombies multiplayer mode are paying off quite well: these modes pulled in more connected users on consoles and PC than any other Call of Duty game.
