After only a few days on the market, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 has already made half-a-billion dollars — and yet apparently that’s still not enough to impress some of the company’s investors.
According to Activision, the number of players over the opening week is a new record for the series, and it had more airtime on Twitch than any other game in the series.
It was actually quite dizzying how many streamers were playing the game.
Even seasoned Fortnite veterans in my follow list were taking up the BlOps banner.
One could argue the main reason for Black Ops 4‘s instant success is its timely leap onto the battle royale bandwagon.
Honestly when I first heard the company was making the BR leap, I was not particularly enthused, but it seems to have worked out in CoD‘s favor.
