It doesn’t take a genius to know that Call of Duty is a big hit the world over. The franchise has long been a staple of the video game world, ushering legions of fans who keep coming back with each new release in the series.
What might come as a surprise, however, is that the release of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare earlier this month is the biggest entertainment launch of the year. That’s right, we’re not just talking about CoD dominating the video game world, Advanced Warfare has beaten out all other movies, books and movies, earning its place as the king of this year’s entertainment media.
Take a minute and let that soak in.
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare has already brought in enough revenue to top the entertainment sales charts. To think that a video game – part of a fledgling industry by entertainment standards – has toppled the competition like this is nothing short of staggering.
As if that wasn’t enough, Activision has also confirmed that the Call of Duty franchise has grossed $10 billion in sales since its inception. Those are some mind blowing numbers.
