Call of Duty Advanced Warfare was released last year in November and has been well received by fans around the world. The game is now the highest selling console game around the world, for the year 2014.
Activision has been highly successful in 2014 with not only Call of Duty, but Skylanders Trap Team is also the top selling kids game on consoles for 2014.
The news was revealed in a post by Activision, in which they also shared the performance of Destiny:
We’d like to thank our fans for making Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare the #1 top-selling video game in the world, Skylanders Trap Team the top-selling kids game in the world and Destiny the #1 new video game IP of 2014,” said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing. “As much fun as we had making these games, we’ve had even more fun playing alongside you. Stay tuned. We have more exciting games in store for fans this year.
