  • Call of Duty Black Ops 4 Earns Over Half a Billion Dollars in Opening Weekend

While we only got the video of his aimbot in action from another player, no one can really tell what the Black Ops 4 hacker is actually seeing in front of his monitor. Having surpassed $500 million, the newest title in the shooter franchise trounced last year's game while also selling double amount of copies on PC, and having twice as many players online from day one.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 reportedly had more active players in its first three days than Call of Duty: WW2 or Black Ops 3, with sales reportedly surpassing $500 million worldwide. Total number of hours played per player are up tremendously, and PC players are up twofold from past year in the three-day launch period.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 officially launched on October 12, and since then the new Blackout battle royale mode has been dominating gamers' attention, alongside the always popular Zombies and fast-paced multiplayer.

"Black Ops 4 is off to a blockbuster start", said Rob Kostich, GM of the Call of Duty franchise. Our digital sales results have been record-breaking across all platforms, and the overall performance strong.

Kimbrel was just a step or two behind Price in the postseason worry-ometer, but he was fine, despite issuing a walk. Such an effort clearly failed past year when Houston faced the New York Yankees .

As a surprise to no one, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 by developer Treyarch saw bonkers sales in its first three days at retail. But after showing recent signs of flagging, developer Treyarch and publisher Activision took the radical - and, yes, fearless - decision to completely change the format for this year's Black Ops 4.

"Black Ops is back!"

Activision added in their statement: "Total players, hours per player, total hours played, and Twitch viewership based on Activision data".

The number of users playing the PC version of Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII, which is the first entry in the series on Blizzard's Battle.net, is also more than double year of year.
