Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is the biggest entertainment launch of the year


Activision has today announced that Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is the biggest entertainment launch of the year, besting not only all other video games, but also the biggest movies, music and books launched in 2014.

"Since Activision created the Call of Duty franchise in 2003, franchise revenues have exceeded $10 billion in sales worldwide, far exceeding box office receipts for such household movie franchises as Hunger Games, Transformers, Iron Man and Avengers, combined," said Bobby Kotick, CEO of Activision Blizzard. "Advanced Warfare is the biggest entertainment launch of 2014 in terms of revenue, surpassing all movie, music and book launches this year."



"We poured our hearts into making Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare an epic ride, and we are pleased with the performance," said Eric Hirshberg, CEO, Activision Publishing, Inc. "Sales and engagement are up through the first week compared to last year. Season Pass sales are up, as well. The game has been very positively reviewed and the response from fans has been tremendous. We believe Advanced Warfare will be the most successful game of the year and we thank our fans for making it the biggest entertainment launch of the year."

Activision also confirmed that Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is the highest-selling digital launch in console history according to Xbox Live, PlayStation Network and internal Activision estimates.

I'll just throw this out there. On PC/Steam, Valkyria Chronicles had a better launch than COD:AW did (inb4 the "No one cares about PC" comments)

Despite the fact the actual figures show that sales of the franchise this year were down by 40%. Then the following week they released their usual PR BS that it had sold more than Destiny, Titanfall, Watch_Dogs & Forza Horizon combined. This again despite being told be each of their developers that their games had also broke sales records. When are we going to ever see the return of honesty back into the gaming industry!??

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
