Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare sales are down nearly 50% on Black Ops 3

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare has bulldozed its way to the top of the U.K. All Format Chart following its launch last Friday, becoming the second-biggest launch of the year so far behind FIFA 17.

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare sales down on Black Ops 3

Despite the feat, it’s worth pointing out that sales of the Infinity Ward-developer shooter are down a massive 48.4 percent on last year’s Call of Duty: Black Ops 3. Is the multi-million selling brand finally starting to run out of steam with the gaming public? 

Infinite Warfare’s success pushes Battlefield 1 down to second place, followed by FIFA 17, Skyrim: Special Edition, and Titanfall 2.

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare was released on PS4, PC, and Xbox One on November 4, 2016. Set in the near future, the game takes place in outer space for the first time in the series’ history, with Earth’s natural resources have been severely depleted thanks to a population spike. Players control a member of the Tier 1 Special Operations force as he is tasked with defeating the Settlement Defense Front, a splinter faction that now oppose the United Nations Space Alliance. 

Meanwhile, Modern Warfare Remastered is being given away with special editions of Infinite Warfare, and offers a fully enhanced version of 2007’s critically acclaimed first-person shooter complete with full campaign and multiplayer component.

Call of Duty first launched in 2003 for the PC and the franchise has since gone on to sell over 175 million copies worldwide as of 2015. The series currently operates on a three-year development cycle for each title, split between Infinity Ward, Sledgehammer Games, and Treyarch.
