UK Retail Charts - Black Ops 4 Nudges FIFA 19 Down to Second

The developer said that Black Ops 4, which was officially released worldwide on October 12, surpassed the mark set by WWII past year. Over the weekend, though, Black Ops 4 players found the game's new gesture system had the unintended side effect of breaking this balance, letting players easily and safely see around cover from a third-person perspective. Furthermore, Activision didn't share any unit sales numbers, physical or digital, for Black Ops 4 - but that is in keeping with modern games industry practices.

The least that can be taken away from Activision's announcement today is that digital sales continue to soar, likely at the direct expense of physical sales.

Individual PlayStation, Xbox, and PC records also set. The title also quickly became the best-selling Activision Xbox One digital game on day one, globally. "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". The most popular installment in the Call of Duty series has always been Black Ops. It's a pretty big deal in the game's tactical Blackout battle royale mode, but the developers have already stated that they're aware of the problem and a fix is on its way. Exact full game sales weren't announced, but analyst firm Piper Jaffray predicts Black Ops 4 will sell anywhere from 21.5 to 23 million copies by December 31, 2018.

"Black Ops 4 is an incredible game, and the community's response to it has been wonderful", he stated. If Black Ops 4 had set a day one record for online players for the franchise then the publisher would have said so.

With the latest Call Of Duty though it's a little easier to imagine that digital sales have compensated for and possibly exceeded the loss in physical sales. An all-multiplayer game likely only compounds on that trend.

With this being an early launch for the CoD franchise (they usually pop out in November) there could still be good physical sales and bundle sales to look forward to in the Xmas run-up.
