Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 set a single day sales record for Activision.

The final statistic that Activision provided was that Black Ops 4's day one online player count increased over Call of Duty: WW2's, which itself had overperformed compared to Infinite Warfare.

"Black Ops 4 is an incredible game, and the community's response to it has been wonderful. This is just the beginning, it's going to be an incredible journey with Black Ops IIII".

"Black Ops IIII is an incredible game, and the community's response to it has been awesome", said Call of Duty EVP and GM Rob Kostich. It has also emerged that day one physical sales of Black Ops 4 were 59 per cent down on those of 2015's Black Ops III, and almost 50 per cent down on the equivalent figure for last year's Call of Duty: World War 2.

A third-person view in a battle royale does allow players to see a lot more, potentially spotting opponents who should be behind cover, or conversely letting them be more confident that the way forward is clear. But again, if Black Ops 4 can continue to engage players online like it's doing right now then Activision is probably more than happy.
