According to the company Activision, one of the most high-profile projects this year, the shooter Call of Duty: Ghosts , brought her a record $ 1 billion for the first day of sales.
According to Bobby Kitty, CEO Activision Blizzard, Call of Duty is the biggest franchise on current generation consoles, and this year, players from around the world enough of it about 4 billion hours, while in the previous part of the series, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, earned more money than any other console project throughout the year.
Sales of Call of Duty: Ghosts started in the night from Tuesday to Wednesday at 15 thousand retail stores worldwide, and at the moment it is the first line in the top Xbox Live, and the duration of the game session in Ghosts, is higher than that of Black Ops 2 and Modern Warfare 3 for the same time period.
It should, however, be noted that in the case of Ghosts talking about money earned by Activision in the shipments of retail shops in the game, not the revenue of most stores sold to end-users with copies of the game. It is therefore likely that the record Grand Theft Auto V ($ 800 million in the first day, $ 1 billion in the first three days) is actually kept, as in the case of GTA V we are talking about retail sales.
