According to sales tracking organization NDP Group, Call of Duty WWII has become the best selling game of 2017, despite only launching a month ago. This means that Call of Duty has taken the position for the best-selling game for the 9th year in a row, following last year’s Infinite Warfare release.
Call of Duty WWII has been highly anticipated since Sledgehammer Games announced the title. Most notably, fans were excited to make a ‘return-to-roots’ with the game’s World War 2 setting and considerably slower pace reminiscent of the older Call of Duty titles.
Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision, made a statement in resp0nse to NPD’s announcement, thanking the fans for their unwavering support:
“As proud as we are of Call of Duty: WW2, we’re equally proud that our talented teams have found ways to keep Call of Duty fresh, relevant and on top of the charts for nearly a decade—an amazing feat. Thanks to the greatest fans in the world for their passion and engagement with this awesome franchise.”
