In comparison, the newest Call of Duty had a bigger opening weekend than Thor: Ragnarok and Wonder Woman combined!

"We knew they would become historians, that they would tackle it with authenticity, give it tremendous care and we also knew they would capture the unspeakable scale of World War II."

Thankfully [for Activision], this year's Call of Duty: WWII launch has been much better received by gamers.

The 25-kill killstreak from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is one that many CoD veterans will fondly remember as a game-ending signal that you dominated the enemy team, a killstreak that drops a massive nuke on the map and instantly gives you a victory.

Activision's annual Call of Duty: WW2 sales press release is in, and amongst the bombastic headlines are a couple of genuinely interesting tidbits.

On PlayStation®4, Call of Duty: WWII set a record as the best-selling digital full game by units sold on its first day of availability.

Moreover, the game has successfully achieved the "highest total connected users on current generation consoles and PC".

First off, just like Assassin's Creed earlier today, Call of Duty: WW2's launch sales were double that of its series' previous entry. Players are also being rewarded for viewing others open those loot boxes. It means that that the companies can make far more money on top of the initial purchase price - potentially doubling that $500 million figure in the long-run.

Here's a synopsis: Call of Duty: WWII tells the story of Private Ronald "Red" Daniels, a young recruit in the U.S. First Infantry Division who experiences combat for the first time on D-Day, one of the largest amphibious assaults in history.
