Black Ops 4 breaks Activision and PSN Day one digital sales records

Treyarch are working on a fix for Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4's emote peeking

In a recent Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 blog post, Treyarch and Activision indicated that they have plans to add a battle pass loot system to Blackout that is reminiscent of Fortnite's Battle Pass.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 has set two new records for day one digital sales.

In fact, it's broken Activision launch-day records for the best-selling Call of duty game.

As a point of comparison, the other major release last week was WWE 2K19, which saw physical sales drop only 37.5% - a much smaller figure than Call Of Duty. But despite digital sales skyrocketing, physical sales have been the lowest the series has seen in 11 years with them being almost 50% down from WWII. The Executive Vice President and GM of Call of Duty Rob Kostich released a statement after the game's launch, where he thanks gamers and basks in the accomplishment. The post has since been deleted, and players are left wondering whether the feature will be available in the game after all.

The Dawsonville, Ga. native led only 11 of the race's 400 laps but remained within striking distance throughout the entire race. But that was little consolation after Sunday's disappointment. "I can't control which way lug nuts fly", Harvick said.

Announced by Activision, that means it beat the record for the franchise that last year's entry set, and it was the greatest day one digital sales on all platforms, PC, Xbox One, and PS4. You'll probably recall that this is the first Call of Duty not to launch with a five-to-seven-hour campaign mostly composed of shooting lads in corridors, too, instead packing a battle royale-esque Blackout mode that was the subject of a high-profile beta on PC.

We're aware that players have been able to use Gestures (often referred to by the community as "Emotes") to peek around corners in modes where that can create an unfair advantage.

At the moment, all we know for sure is that Black Ops 4 is the second best-selling physical game of the year, behind Federation Internationale de Football Association 19, with 58% of sales on PlayStation 4, 41% on Xbox One, and 1% on PC.
