I saw some people predicting it would outsell Red Dead 2. Sorry but it's not even close!

I feel like the PC version has something to do with this.

It looks low but I can guarantee this game sold more than WWII
Its probably because of the increasing amount of people going digital (including me)

As far as I know Activision did say that it had the highest digital sales in franchise history, so you’re very likely right there. I know I recently purchased it digitally.

Yeah digital keeps increasing and it generated just as much money as ww2 and had more players.

Yeah digital sales increased, but I highly doubt it increased by 2 million in a single year.

BO4 and WW2 both made $500m in 3 days so it probably did increase by that much.
