Last year, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare was nearly universally panned before launch due to its futuristic style of gameplay. The game has doubled Infinite Warfare's opening weekend sales in its first three days and is tracking to make a fairly successful comeback for the franchise. For those who are asking how this $500 Million revenue is massive? it is impressive because it beat the opening weekend earnings of the highly anticipated Hollywood movies - Thor: Raganork and Wonder Women.
Activision also confirmed the new WWII video game is also the best selling digital video game on PS4 on launch day.
With Call of Duty: WWII's success, the Activision CEO has revealed that we nearly got another futuristic Call of Duty. The vehicles are key features in some scenes and situations in multiple games, and are seen in Call of Duty-related material outside of the games as well, including guides, promotional material, toys, and books.
Activision CEO Eric Hirshberg has revealed that Call of Duty: WW2 developer Sledgehammer originally wanted to make a sequel to Advanced Warfare, their 2014 entry into the hit shooter franchise, before being tasked with taking the series back to World War 2.
The lawsuit from AM General states, "In Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, multiple in-game missions and multiplayer levels include depictions of vehicles bearing the (or substantially similar) distinctive design elements of the AM General Trade Dress ("Infringing Vehicles")". Call of Duty: WWII is a huge success already, garnering $500 000 000 in sales in its opening weekend alone. "And we're committed to supporting the community with continuous improvements and new content".
