Call of Duty Repeats in 2016 as Top-Selling Console Franchise

Call of Duty

Activision’s blockbuster Call of Duty keeps dominating the market. The last title of the series, Infinite Warfare, has topped both the December 2016 and 2016 full year charts.

It may not come as a surprise, but Call of Duty keeps on kicking the charts and granting Activision nice numbers overall. According to the recent NPD report, Call of Duty was again the number one top-selling console franchise in the world last year. This announcement is based on revenue and it embraces both the profits gained through Black Ops III and Infinite Warfare.

This marks the seventh time in the last eight years that Activision’s on-going hit franchise has been the top-selling console franchise worldwide, and the eighth consecutive year in the U.S. On their press release, Activision CEO Eric Hirshberg wanted to thank the community. “We’re thankful to our players for once again putting Call of Duty on top, and we recognize how rare this is – to do year after year. That’s why we push to deliver innovations and incredible gameplay that are worthy of the best fans in the world time and again. And we have an exciting year ahead in 2017.”

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Expands with Sabotage

One month ago, Activision announced the first paid DLC for Infinite Warfare, Sabotage. It will bring expand content for the multiplayer mode, such as four new maps and a brand new zombie (mis)adventure, Rave in the Woods. Call of Duty fans will surely appreciate the nostalgia halo that comes with the Dominion map, which is basically a Modern Warfare 2 remake of the classic map Afghan.

Sabotage is arriving soon on January 31. It will surely be the first of multiple DLCs coming to enrich (and extend) the Infinite Warfare experience. All in all, one cannot deny that the COD franchise is keeping the stamina well over the years. We’ll need to see whether someone else manages to take the lead in this new year that starts.
