The behemoth that is the Call of Duty franchise has officially sold more than 250 million copies worldwide.
Announcing the news, Activision's Communications Manager, Scott Lowe, said " Each year, we are reminded of the passion of the Call of Duty community." This was another great year for the series with Black Ops III crowned the top-selling game of 2015 worldwide.
The Call of Duty franchise began in 2003 with the World War II themed Call of Duty. It received exceptional reviews and sold 4.5 million copies. But did anyone imagine that it would snowball into what it has become?
Activision senior vice president Rob Kostich was delighted with the news. "This achievement is thanks to the amazing experiences created by all of our development teams, and would not be possible without the incredible passion from the Call of Duty community. We congratulate Treyarch on creating an incredibly engaging and an enormously fun game with Black Ops III and look forward to what's to come in 2016," he said.
