Activision Speaks Out About Their Sales of Call of Duty Ghosts
Over the last 2 weeks Activision has been openly speaking out about their sales of the latest installment of their Call of Duty series: Ghosts.
While many critics are quick to throw insults, Activision has an entirely different view of the success of Call of Duty Ghosts.
Here’s what Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing, Inc. has to say:
“Around the globe, Call of Duty: Ghosts is leading the next generation. It’s the #1 selling title at key retailers and it’s also the most played game on Xbox One and PS4 globally,”
So the truth finally comes out. While many are quick to say that the quality of Ghosts is lacking, the number tell the true story.
Not only is Ghosts the highest selling game for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 around the world, but it’s also the most played game on the Xbox 360 according to Microsoft.
There have been over 1 billion (with a b) multiplayer matches played on Call of Duty Ghosts across the various platforms that gamers are using. That’s 2.2 million times players have Prestiged and 3.3 trillion total XP points earned.
Who does the CEO of Activision have to thank for the great success? You silly!
“As we’ve said before, we’ve got the best community of fans in the world, and we’re thrilled they’re coming with us to the next generation.”
Here are some kind closing words from the VP of Activision giving a little insight into their hopes for the future of FPS gaming and the Call of Duty series.
“Congratulations to our friends at Microsoft for the launch of the Xbox One,” said Dave Stohl, executive vice president, worldwide studios, Activision Publishing, Inc. “Xbox and Call of Duty together have formed a valued and lasting partnership on Xbox 360, and we know this is just the beginning. So we look forward to an exciting new future on Xbox One.”
