Once again, a new Call of Duty entry is the "biggest entertainment launch" of the year.
Activision confirmed as much today, and it means that the recently released Advanced Warfare surpassed all other video games, movies, music and book releases in 2014.
Interestingly, the publisher didn't provide any actual sales numbers, but Activision did say that first-week sales and "engagement" are up compared to last year's Ghosts . Season Pass numbers are also ahead of 2013. As more and more gamers gravitate toward digital, it's not too surprising to learn that the game is the "highest-selling digital launch" in console history, according to the PlayStation Network, Xbox Live, and Activision's internal estimates.
Players enjoyed over 70 million online matches in that first week, and the publisher also confirmed that overall, the Call of Duty franchise has surpassed $10 billion in lifetime sales. …that's sort of ridiculous, actually.
