According to NPD Group’s November report, physical sales of Infinite Warfare in the U.S. were close to 50 percent lower than Call of Duty: Black Ops III’s sales last year. Sales in the UK were also said to be lower at launch, but not as bad as in the states.
Keep in mind this report only details physical sales and not digital, which should help straighten out the franchise’s real sales figures.
Activision Blizzard was expecting sales for Infinite Warfare to be softer as the game received loads of backlash from the community, but there’s no way they were expecting this big of a drop-off. In fact, the company’s current stock has dipped by about $4 a share in the last month, and $9 since mid-October.
Meantime, Infinity Ward is hoping to keep moving along with Infinite Warfare and its attached Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered with new DLC maps.
