In a blog post yesterday, the firm crowed about Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 breaking franchise launch day records, eclipsing records set in 2017 by Call of Duty: WWII.

Many are hailing Black Ops 4 as the best Call of Duty game in years, and while that definitely feels a tad premature, it's certainly not the cynical offering some were expecting, especially with the one notable gameplay exclusion which has sharply divided the fanbase. But despite digital sales skyrocketing, physical sales have been the lowest the series has seen in 11 years with them being almost 50% down from WWII. The same can be said for Activision's record for digital sales on release day on Xbox One. As always, retail sales are expected to beat digital. "We have shattered multiple digital day one sales records, and the number of people who connected online on day one to play has grown year on year". Activision usually does not release the sales statistics for their COD games, but they weren't going to let this latest achievement pass on by without an announcement. They specifically say that those modes include Blackout, which also seems to be where most of the community's concern has been focused.

The World Ends With You -Final Remix- also did relatively well, given the game is a remaster of a 10-year-old DS game, by reaching number 21 in the all formats charts and 25 in the individual formats chart. We are so incredibly thankful for the community's trust and support.

In case you're curious, here's how you can "cheat" via Black Ops 4 Blackout emote peeking (via sw3ar). While these look amusing and add a layer of personality to the match, it seems it also allows inadvertent cheating in Black Ops 4's Blackout battle royale.
