Call of Duty: WWII has only been on the market for a few days but it is already off to a hot start. Skip forward to around the 7:30 mark and you'll see the killstreak's devastating effects in action. 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". It kills everyone who's not under some sort of cover at the time that it's dropped, and the player in the video above just happened to gain enough kills to end the match by dropping the V2.
Despite breaking records left and right, Call of Duty WW2 is not the fastest-selling Call of Duty game of all-time, falling just short of Black Ops III's $550 million in its first three days. But publisher Activision has now revealed some numbers that highlight exactly how well the World War 2-set shooter is performing.
WWII also set a PlayStation 4 record for first day digital sales for a full game. Activision also added that the "overall unit sales at launch doubled year-over-year globally". Our $500 million opening weekend was not only bigger than Thor: Ragnarok's, it was bigger than the opening weekends of both Thor and Wonder Woman combined.
It is clear that Call of Duty WW2 returning to a World War II setting that was featured in the first several COD games has made a significant difference.
The worldwide release of Call of Duty: WWII on November 3rd took the series back to its historical roots.
