It's the biggest digital launch in the history of gaming and yet you are saying things like " I hope activision learned their lesson".
Yes, because sales are almost assuredly below Activision expectations. Black Ops is the biggest CoD sub-series, Black Ops 4's launch should have been absolutely massive compared to WW2, as WW2's launch was smaller than Black Ops 1, Black Ops 2, and Black Ops 3 by a fair margin. Black Ops 4's launch being around the same level as WW2 means that it's the smallest launch within the Black Ops sub-series.
Activision's response today was filled with PR spin. Saying that it was the biggest digital launch, but not where it fell in terms of overall sales or revenue compared to other games in the series. For many previous games in the series they announced 24 hour, 3 day, and 5 day revenue, we got no 24 hour info with Activision's announcement today. Why do you thinkthat is? The most likely case is that 24 hour revenue is down compared to the first 3 Black Ops games and they don't want people to know that.Last edited by shikamaru317 - on 14 October 2018
