"Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4" Destroys First Day Digital Sales Record

Treyarch Studios

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 has set two new records for day one digital sales.

As predicted by many analysts and much to Activison's delight, Black Ops 4 is a digital sales powerhouse on PS4, Xbox One and PC.

It's becoming increasingly hard to tell how well a game is doing from its chart position, as many long-running series see major drops in sales but others, such as Forza Horizon, still manage to increase.

In addition to setting internal records at Activision, Black Ops 4 had the strongest day one digital full game sales on the PlayStation Store in its history. 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. It also sold double WWII in terms of digital PC sales. "The brand-new Supply Stream system now grants you new gear as you progress through tiers", Activision stated in the blog (via CharlieIntel).

If it didn't though it's likely only by a small margin, which may be due to the fact that it launches nearly a month earlier than usual this year.

Is Black Ops 4 going to make you feel as giddy as you did when playing Modern Warfare for the first time back in 2007?

Blackout was only released on October 12, so some teething issues should be expected and they will do little to bring down the overall opinion of the game, which has already been a massive hit with streamers and Call of Duty fans alike. On top of that, another point which may have swayed players to purchase digital is the huge day one patch that owners of the physical copy would have to download. Ubisoft's Starlink: Battle For Atlas is out on Tuesday, and then on Friday there's SoulCalibur VI, Lego DC Super-Villains, and Dark Souls Remastered on Switch.
