Call of Duty’s sales bounced back with Black Ops III

by Eric Frederiksen | December 11, 2015

Call of Duty has had a hard time with the new generation of consoles. That is to say, they’ve still been selling piles and piles of copies, just slightly smaller piles. With Call of Duty: Black Ops III, however, the series is showing the kind of strength Activision is used to from their flagship franchise.

Not only did it outsell last year’s entry, Advanced Warfare, it outsold just about everything else. In a comment to GamesBeat, Call of Duty manager Rob Kostich said that the game was the biggest seller “by a wide margin in both units and dollars sold through,” and that “Call of Duty was the largest release of any title in North America since 2013″ at retail.

For those hoping the slump of the last couple years might’ve been suggestive of an end to the series, it looks like Call of Duty isn’t going anywhere.
