Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Sells 7.5 Million Units First Week Worldwide - NewsWilliam D'Angelo , posted on 14 November 2014 / 16,340 Views
Yesterday it was reported that Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare sold 3.72 million units in its first week in the US. Worldwide sales figures are out now and the game has sold 7.51 million units at retail. This is by far the biggest launch of 2014, easily outselling other titles such as Destiny, Titanfall and FIFA 15.
The PlayStation 4 version of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare was by far the most popular with sales of 3.05 million units. The Xbox One was the second biggest platform with sales of 2.06 million units. Sales for the last generation of consoles has declined for another year. The Xbox 360 version sold 1.22 million units, while the PlayStation 3 version sold 1.09 million units. The PC lagged behind with just 94,480 units sold.
When you compare it with the launch of last year's title, Call of Duty: Ghosts, sales are up year-over-year, as stated by Activision. However, that is only true if you subtract the later launches of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions. Ghosts sold 7.25 million units worldwide at retail at launch, while if you add in launch sales for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of the game it sold 8.23 million units.
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is available for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. The game launched in North America and Europe on November 4 and November 13 in Japan.
