In addition to $500 million in launch sales, Black Ops 4 also sets record numbers for the franchise in players, hours played, and even hours watched on Twitch!
The first Call of Duty release on Blizzard Battle.net, Black Ops 4 on PC continues to be significantly above last year, as the number of players is more than double year over year through its first three days. Based on minutes watched, Black Ops 4 has delivered the highest level of viewership through launch weekend on Twitch in franchise history! We're really excited about Black Ops 4'smomentum. We'll be sure to update this feature as that information becomes available, as well as provide more detail on the characters we're now missing. Black Ops 4 revolves around mercenaries who use customized, near-future gear, which does include some less "realistic" elements, but they're by no means what I'd call sci-fi. For comparison, last year's Call of Duty: WW II hit $1 billion in sales, but only after it had been on the market 47 days. The eligible cans will have Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 labelled near the ring so make sure you don't get old stock.

Black Ops 4 also has a Digital Deluxe edition on the Xbox Store which comprises the standard edition and the season pass, although it's cheaper than buying both separately.
The game was published by Activision and Treyarch, as well as Raven Software and Beenox for the PV. A variety of issues causing the game to crash, particularly on PC, have been fixed and the PC version has been given some stability improvements, hopefully meaning PC players won't be seeing any more blackouts. It's rated M for Mature (Blood and Gore, Drug Reference, Intense Violence, Strong Language).
