‘Call of Duty: Ghosts’ Expected to Haul in $1 Billion

Actual one-day sales 'too early to assess,' according to Activision

Looking for any way to top the record $800 million one-day sales figure generated by Rockstar’s “Grand Theft Auto V,” Activision said it has enough copies of “Call of Duty: Ghosts” in stores to top $1 billion. The game was released Tuesday.

“Call of Duty is by far the largest console franchise of this generation,” said Activision CEO Bobby Kotick. “And in the last 12 months, ‘Call of Duty: Black Ops II,’ including its digital content, generated more revenues than any other console game ever has in a single year. Although it is too early to assess sell-through for ‘Call of Duty: Ghosts,’ it’s launching at a time when the franchise has never been more popular.”

“Ghosts” was the most pre-ordered game this year, according to retailer GameStop.

Each installment of “Call of Duty” has generated over $1 billion over the last four years, selling more than 20 million copies.

Grand Theft Auto V,” released in September, has sold more than 29 million copies, with analysts expecting “Ghosts” to come close at around 25 million or more. “Grand Theft Auto V” topped the $1 billion sales mark in three days, another record.

While “Ghosts” is now out for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, Activision will release versions of the game for the next-generation Xbox One and PlayStation 4 videogame consoles on Nov. 15 and Nov. 22, respectively.
