Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Was the Best Selling Game of 2015 Worldwide
It will probably come as no surprise to anybody who takes notice to game sales, but Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 was the top-selling game of 2015 worldwide. This is a feat that it has managed for the seventh year in a row.
Activision have revealed this in their blog with the following statement:
“Each year, we are reminded of the passion of the Call of Duty community. From the excitement we saw at reveal to the massive turnout for the multiplayer beta and at launch in November—2015 was an incredible year for Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 and the team at Treyarch. Thanks to the community’s continued support, Black Ops 3 was the top-selling game of 2015 worldwide. In North America in particular, this marks Call of Duty’s seventh year in a row as the top-selling franchise of the year, according to NPD. What’s more, Black Ops 3 has brought the total life-to-date sales for the Call of Duty franchise to more than 250 million units.”
Even if you are not a fan of the first person shooting game, this is a success story that can’t be ignored really. With Call of Duty’s success as well as other games it all shows the level of success the games industry is having.
Adding accolades such as the biggest entertainment release to the list we can probably expect it to have continued success as the next game in the series is revealed later this year. It will be interesting to see whether this could be Call of Duty: Ghosts 2, Advanced Warfare 2 or something completely different.
