According to Amazon, preorders for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare spiked over 385% following Gamescom. The news from Gamescom about MP details and Day Zero preorder bonus definitely contributed to this huge gain for Activision.

Advanced Warfare’s preorder numbers aren’t up to par with previous Call of Duty titles, but it seems like it’s on the right track now following the multiplayer reveal and the Day Zero Edition preorder bonus. There’s still more to come, with the Co-Op mode yet to be revealed for Advanced Warfare.



    People are just scared that it isn’t the same as other years IMO

  • VVFZ

    Makes sense, after the disaster that was Ghosts people wanted to see what they were getting themselves into by pre-ordering.


      Idk why people are so afraid of preordering (speaking for all games) its just $5

      + If they included the Atlas Gorge MP map in the standard edition like previous years they may have gained more preorders. I would much prefer the bonus MP map than getting it day zero and all these little character customisation things, of which there are billions of combinations in the game anyway. So I don’t mind missing out on the bullet brass exo they give us, which everyone will be wearing anyway if they preorder. The preorder guns look good even though the EM1 Quantum is said to be underpowered, but the AK-12 should be good.

    • UpRiftCOD

      I mean it was better then black ops 2.

  • Seven

    Good. People might be seeing that people (infinity ward) make mistakes. This cod might suck but at least they are still trying new things.

  • I’ve yet to pre-order, because I want to hear about the Co-Op first. I know it may take awhile to be revealed, so I may end up not preordering at all.

    • KernosT

      No Problem/Just buy the game on release.I’m sure they wont give a fuck if you don’t pre order but you do buy it in the 1st week.

    • MeisseN

      Wait do you decide if you preorder or not according to Co-Op? That’s new…

      • Well i like what I’ve seen, but Co-Op is my favorite part of Ghosts and BO2. I split my time in BO1 between Zombies and MP, but barely played anything but zombies in BO2. I usually complete 3-5 missions a week in Extinction, and haven’t touched Ghosts MP in 3 months. I am a huge Co-Op player and if AW mp isn’t my thing, Co-Op will get me through another COD. So yes, I wait to preorder or not according to Co-Op.

      • Paul Thomas

        That’s what I did with BO2 and Ghost. I wanted to see everything before I pre-ordered. I’m going to do the same thing in AW but with Destiny and the Pre-sequel I may not even get it.

    • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

      I’m not pre-ordering because there’s still a possibility that the game could be shit.

  • Kevin Spacey

    Now I wanna know, which system (or PC) has the most pre orderea?

    • StrayHeart93

      Probably the xb1 since they get everything first

      • CB101

        Ghosts sold the most on the PS4, i would guess that the PS4 would be the best selling, if only matched by last gen, since they have so much more consoles.

        • StrayHeart93


        • Autocorrect

          Last-gen probably 360. Next-gen probably ps4.

    • Not Sure

      The guy at my gamestop says the ps4 version pre orders are double any other system. That’s just that store though.

    • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

      PC is a system.

      • Kevin Spacey

        I don’t like to categorize it as a “system” because people will get buttwet.

        • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

          Let them, Mr. Spacey. You’ve got the power, so YOU’RE right.

      • Unreal

        no its more like consoles are pc’s … everthing that’s programmable is to be considered as a computing machine …

        • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

          Technically yes, but:

          A system is a set of interacting or interdependent components forming an integrated whole or a set of elements (often called’components’ ) and relationships which are different from relationships of the set or its elements to other elements or sets.

    • Keshav Bhat

      Xbox One has the most in the US, not sure internationally.

  • Your Chin

    Is it lower than Ghosts? Or lower than me? By the way, I feel like another chin is coming. Put the Doritos and Mtn Dew down, fatty.

  • Guywithbrains

    Preorder numbers are so low they said. Call of Duty is dead they said.

    • Juses

      preorders are really low…

      • Guywithbrains

        Yeah but people claiming Call of Duty is dead is not true. People think that big pre-order numbers mean good game. Destiny is an excellent example of game which is pre-ordered a lot but it is nothing special. People will see it in couple of days after release.

  • Dylan DuGirls

    I’ll be waiting for the console to arrive. The day I get an xbox one will be the birth of advanced warfare. Legggooooo

    • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)


      • Dylan DuGirls

        Nahhh fam

  • K

    “Advanced Warfare’s preorder numbers aren’t up to par with previous Call of Duty titles”

    Is their a source for this?

    • Welovegamekings
      • K

        I thought it might have been πŸ™ VGChartz is hugely unreliable. They’re great for historical figures as they update their numbers when the NPD figures are released, but for pre-orders, they are proved unreliable quite often.

        Nevermind I guess. We’ll see for sure when the game is released. I wouldn’t be surprised if it did sell less though.

        • Welovegamekings

          Ye I mean, it can’t be that far away from the actual numbers right? I think we can all agree on the fact that all of us were a little careful with pre ordering before we knew about how MP worked and what they changed. Just because of Ghosts, new dev etc.

          Im sure this game will be alright, sellingwise.

          • MyKogInYourAshe

            But don’t forget VGChartz only counts US pre orders

          • Welovegamekings

            Good point. But I think that the european market anno 2014 is more like FIFA and Battlefield kinda people. I don’t understand it either but ye, just because playstation is bigger and xbox is the original shooter console.

          • MyKogInYourAshe

            CoD pre orders are high on Europe especially on UK ….

  • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

    Looking at Amazon (which is funny) you save: $0.03. Good deal must buy.

    Pre-orders are STILL down, btw, and Activision is just making excuses. And why would people pre-order for Day Zero? They must be stupid.

    • Guywithbrains

      I pre-order this game and day zero just makes me more to want to pre-order this. So far this is looking much more promising than couple of previous titles.

      • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

        Right. But a DAY of early access? Might as well gotten released on the 3rd. There’s no benefit.

        • Run N Gunning Camper

          Just go get it from Kijiji and get a copy a week early. Forget about playing the game a day early.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            I don’t know what that is lol.

          • yo

            I think that’s the point lol

    • Detrix

      how is that stupid? , you get the game a day earlier than most people , plus you get double XP on that day and you get a few other bonuses.

      • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

        It’s retarded. We should have gotten a beta instead. Double XP? Big deal.

    • Freeze

      Day zero isnt so special because we all get it early

      • Unless you are someone who isn’t sure that they want to buy it day one. However, I see your point, it’s just clever marketing.

      • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

        A day early. Big whoop lol.


    The reason for the spike is cause COD can’t get any worse than Ghost

  • Ryumoau

    This is great news. This game at least deserves to sell as good as ghosts did, if for no other reason than because of its higher quality. Though i’m hoping it reaches Black Ops 2 sales numbers when it releases. πŸ™‚


    *this is just an opinion* I feel as if ghosts, possibly advanced warfare and possibly treyarchs next title might be completely expiremental, IMO this game is going to be amazing. With that being said I said that when ghosts was revealed and we all know how that ended, I may be completely wrong but with everyone like myself are asking for new things from all developers they are testing their limits and seeing what works and what flops.

  • LovekillerX

    I thought Call of Duty was dead (sarcasm.)

    Seriously it is good thing to see that finally preorders rose which I expected. Maybe Call of Duty isn’t dead as someone said?

  • kia0525

    I would’ve actually preordered if it was a beta instead of day zero access. That way u can try out the game for $5 instead of paying $60 with a chance of not even liking the game.

    • GodLikeLeftNut

      even a short campaign demo wouldn’t hurt. ah demos those were the days.

      • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

        Now I want one if I don’t get the game.

  • PatPatPat

    Damn dude.

  • Zarky

    Wish I could pre-order but I’m not sure if I’ll be able to get a next gen console in-time or not πŸ™

  • James Veach

    I kinda dont want dedi servers so i can play against the eurofags like the goodol days =P

  • LuLz

    Why is everyone so worried about complaining on how the game isn’t selling? Clearly if it wasn’t selling CoD would be doing way more than they are to Advertise the game, people will get it. it just make no sense to have so many kids like OMG 385% you guys suck way to try and amp it up. Lmao just stfu and don’t come on this site or get the game I for one can’t wait for this game on next-gen I think this CoD will do just fine

  • Sunday

    Ghosts screwed up with the launch mp maps. Cluttered and ugly design put me off buying any dlc which was… Apparently really great. You can’t leave a sour taste in out mouthes and expect players to buy your dlc iw. Flooded, chasm, tremor & whiteout all have the worst flow cod maps can have. Hopefully SHG make some killer maps at launch so that I’ll want to but their DLC.

    • pots

      whiteout is amazing you are obviously horrible and need only cqc clusterfuck maps to win because you cant aim and need chokepoints or you get outplayed

  • MichiganerE

    Guys, I’m sorry to say this, but AW looks to be doing awful in pre-orders. These are the pre order numbers of MW3, BO2, Ghosts and AW around this time.

    Advanced Warfare pre-order numbers: 249,287 (Aug 16, 2014)
    Ghosts pre-order numbers: 1,097,957 (Aug 17, 2013)
    BO2 pre-order numbers: 1,211,579 (Aug 18, 2012)
    MW3 pre-order numbers: 1,098,772 (Aug 20, 2011)

    It looks like CoD is dying, and IW is to blame.

    • Run N Gunning Camper

      I’m blaming Destiny. Their successful beta also doubled as a great advertisement.

      • MichiganerE

        That’s another possibility. But I still think the biggest reason is because of how big of a flop Ghosts was.

        • Freeze

          I agree, not fair that ghosts to hurt an actually good game.

          • MichiganerE

            Well, we don’t know if it’s good yet. But still, no other develop should deal with a shit storm for another developer’s mistake.

    • jooker-jr

      U might say I’m defending the game but now there’s no reason pre-order anything and that’s why pre-orders are down for every single game

      • MichiganerE

        I don’t think that would be a reason.

    • LovekillerX

      You may be right but that 249,287 preorders can’t be right because only in US there are 224,287 preorders made (Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4, not including PS3 didn’t find it but we can assume it goes somewhere near 30,000 – 40,000.) So there are nearly 250,000 preorders made in US. You have to count EU and Asia.

      But don’t get me wrong. You are right when you say that preorders aren’t the greatest. But I can still say that the true numbers of preorders made is near 350,000 – 400,000. I would count EU and Asia if I could find their charts but I didn’t (bad luck.)

      I think that so many great games are coming soon. Destiny, Shadow of Mordor, The Sims 4 and many others. And I assume that many players chose Destiny over Advanced Warfare and that explains preorder numbers. It can rise and I think that it will. πŸ™‚

      By the way I haven’t made my preorder yet but I will do it next month. πŸ™‚

      • MichiganerE

        You do know that I only counted the US for all four games, right? MW3, BO2, and Ghosts around this time in the US alone all had 1 million pre-orders and that’s counting all platforms they’re on.

        • LovekillerX

          Yeah but back then there weren’t so many great games coming that people hyped. This year we will get Destiny for example which got lot preorders.

          I think that we can wonder these preorders in October. It doesn’t matter if it now doesn’t have 1 million preorders. But if it doesn’t have even near million preorders in October then we should wonder.

          • MichiganerE

            I guess you’re right. Back in 2012, BO2 had to go up against AC3 and Halo 4 which lowered it’s 24 hour sales, but it still managed to have sales on par with MW3, the best selling CoD game of all time. Maybe AW’s pre-orders will really start rising up when the hype for Destiny dies down. But if they don’t, then CoD truly is dying.

    • Grenada!

      Because AW is up against Destiny, Halo MCC, AC Unity, GTA 5 Re-mastered, Evolve etc. I could go on for awhile. Ghosts was up against BF4 and AC Black Flag and that was about it. 2014 has so many games coming out in October and November, So I can see why AW isn’t the most pre-ordered.

      • MichiganerE

        Yeah.. how do I put this? Oh yeah, AW is pretty much fucked. Also, GTA 5 and Evolve have been delayed to 2015.

    • StealthyKILLS

      Infinity ward sucked after mw2.

  • GodLikeLeftNut

    why throw money now when you can just pre order digitally a few days before. and then risk a chance of your delivery not turning up? or waiting hours in a cue sunday night? digital downloads give you the abbility to get the game instantly so pre ordering is only useful for pre installing

  • Ho-ly spaghetti,you save $0.03,im done,offer of the year

  • Pre-orders will also increase once they give details about the last gen versions of the game. Many have last gen consoles and need details about what to expect from the developer who is making AW, since SHGames isn’t making it.

  • Lmao

    You save $0.03! Fcking awesome!

      • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

        The comments section is for opinions. But they ban hateful comments. I’ve complained multiple times and I don’t remember any of my comments being deleted.

  • It’s just going to be a different kind of year. Advanced Warfare won’t have a huge start, but I believe it will catch on and fast. Fans are being cautious this year, but once the positive responses come in, things will turn around. They are going to have to earn their fan’s trust back after Ghosts and there’s nothing wrong with that. You make the developers work a little harder and you get a better product. Can’t wait to play it!

    • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

  • NuttyTheSquirrel

    The “Day Zero Edition” is such fucking bullshit.

    The people who would play it on release would normally be the people who pre-ordered the game. So the day-zero edition is really irrevelant.

    The people who would be playing on the 4th will be the same people playing the game on the 3rd. It’s just marketing bullshit. “Pre-order and play it earlier, well, not really”

    • K

      I don’t know if you struggle with the use of calenders or trivial things such as “the date”, but the 3rd of November is definitely an earlier time to play than the 4th.

      Not that we should let those sorts of crazy facts get in the way of your constant, tedious whinging eh?

      • Kill Denied

        He never stops complaining.

        • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

          We have the right to. Sorry that we don’t brown nose Activision to play Advanced Warfare early. Sorry that we have opinions and give feedback. No game is perfect.

      • NuttyTheSquirrel

        Tell me who would play the game on the 4th?
        Now tell me who would play it on the 3rd?

        Yup, exact same people. So, there’s not really a bonus there. The game pretty much comes out on the 3rd, since EVERYONE who would be playing it on the 3rd, would be playing it on the 4th.

    • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

      It IS bullshit. The game needed a beta. Blame Activision. Fucking stupid. I was anticipating them to announce a beta at the reveal, and then Hirshberg said “Day Zero” and I was done. Second time I’ve been disappointed with Advanced Warfare this year, the first was the “surprise” that turned out to be a gimmick. Now Day Zero is another gimmick. Double XP? …yay? Should we be excited about that? What other benefits do we have? Lol. I could get Double XP after the game launches, that’s not a benefit, it’s a gimmick. What were they thinking?

  • No matterwhat, I’ll always be hyped for Call of Duty. Whatever It brings to the table, I’ll be a fan of, sure Ghosts wasn’t the best, but it was an ok game at times.

    3. Far Cry 4 (Who doesn’t like this game)
    4. The Division (Great for Co-Op gameplay and team up with you squad)
    5. Homefront: Revolution (Ya’ll gotta check this one out!)
    6. Rainbow Six: Siege (Again, great for team play tactics and gameplay looks so smooth!)
    7. Uncharted 4!!!!!!!!!!!! (nuff said)
    8. Dead Island 2 nd dying light ( Come on, who doesn’t like to slaughter Zombies)
    9. Evolve (Hunters and Monster, doesn’t get any better than this ha!)
    10. The Crew (Exotic Cars, high speed, and the crew)

    Ohh and The Order: 1886!! i Guess that makes it my top 11 hahaha

      I think that you are not going to be disappointed! πŸ™‚ For me this game seems like the best Call of Duty ever. Especially graphics which looks stunning. If you compare it to next gen version of Ghosts you can see how much better those graphics are. Also story and multiplayer looks so fun and for the first time it feels like it isn’t just shoot your way from point A to point B (despite that fact that I have liked every campaign this far.)

      Which version you are going to buy? Last gen (Xbox 360, PS3) or current gen (PS4, Xbox One and PC?) πŸ™‚
