Call of Duty: WWII Has a 'Nuke' Killstreak

Activision announced today that their recently released Call of Duty: WWII has sold extremely well, doubling the opening sales of Infinite Warfare worldwide in that same period past year.

But the team at Activision, who had seen Call of Duty's meteoric growth since it's inception 15 years ago, sensed that fans in 2017 would desire a return to the title's roots; historical gameplay set in the WWII era, which all of the first 6 titles in the series had been set.

On PlayStation®4, Call of Duty: WWII set a record as the best-selling digital full game by units sold on its first day of availability. Call of Duty reaches back to its roots to bring players an entry worthy of the series' namesake. In Call of Duty: WWII, you won't be ending the games right away with the V2 Rocket killstreak, but you'll still do some serious damage as shown towards the end of the PwnStarz video shown below, assuming you can meet the requirements.

Call of Duty WW2 is available on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One.

What's more is that the $500 million figure is just a small fraction of the money that Call of Duty: WW2 could actually make for both companies.

Activision also estimated that its game has made more than superhero movies Thor: Ragnarok and Wonder Woman made on their box office openings, combined.

"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 Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision, in the press release for the news. This is good news for Call of Duty developer and publisher but the Steam reviews aren't very positive.
