Activision has revealed that Call of Duty: Ghosts has sold-in (sold to retail) over one billion dollars of revenue on it’s first day of release. The publisher has also highlighted the fact that the game has a number one ranking on Microsoft’s Xbox Live.
“Ghosts is an amazing game which ushers in the next generation of Call of Duty,” commented Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing.
“This is the must have launch title for the next generation of consoles, and we expect Call of Duty: Ghosts to be the most successful launch title for the Xbox One and PS4 by a wide margin. In fact, according to GameStop, Call of Duty: Ghosts is their most pre-reserved next gen title.”
They did not reveal unit sales at this time, but we will probably be seeing that in the near future. This would effectively have the game beating GTA V for the top sales spot, but without unit numbers there is no way to determine if they sold more games or just made more revenue due to sales of more expensive collector’s editions and such.
