Call of Duty: WW2 is a hit, and became such after just three days of availability.
The shooter also sold twice as many copies as last year's Infinite Warfare at release and has set the all-time record for digital full game download sales on day one.
"We challenged our players to get their squads back together and they answered the call with the highest number of players we've ever seen on current gen consoles and PC", said Activision CEO Eric Hirshberg.
Activision also estimated that its game has made more than superhero movies Thor: Ragnarok and Wonder Woman made on their box office openings, combined.
The Call of Duty franchise shows no sign of slowing down with the debut of Call of Duty: WWII. It is completely amplified by the capabilities of new technology, innovations, higher graphics fidelity and it is Call Of Duty: "WWII like you've never seen before". "And we're committed to supporting the community with continuous improvements and new content". A sequel to their 2014 "Advanced Warfare", the first Call of Duty game to feature an advanced movement system with the addition of "Exo-suits".
Call of Duty: WWII apparently includes more historical references than just those from WWII with the game having a challenging "nuke" killstreak alluding back to one of the best games from the series. It takes place in the European theater of conflict, at a time when the Allied forces were finally starting to gather strength on their march into Germany.
World War II was the right move.
