Call of Duty sales plummet by 50% compared to 2015

Cod Infinite Warfare

Call of Duty Infinite Warfare’s physical sales have declined by 50% compared to last year’s “Call of Duty: Black Ops III,” reports CNBC.

As a result Activision Blizzard has seen its shares decline by over 20% from mid-October highs and worries over poor launch sales from Infinite Warfare.

While these sales numbers pertain specifically to the United States, other parts of the world have seen a remarkably similar decline in sales numbers, with a 48% year-over-year drop during the first week of “Call of Duty” sales in the United Kingdom, according to Gfk Chart-Track sell-through data revealed in early November.

This does not however provide for digital sales which are currently on the rise according to a recent EA earnings conference call, with digital game sales now accounting for 30% of all gaming sales.

However, the large size of the “Call of Duty” physical game sales drop makes it likely the overall decline will be worse than expected says CNBC.
