NPD has officially released the data for the month of November 2015 and have revealed that Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 was the best selling title in the US at retail for the month. It led ahead of Fallout 4 and Star Wars Battlefront for the month.
Activision issued the following statement to IGN:
“Black Ops III was the largest release in North America in November by a wide-margin in both units and dollars sold-thru,” said Call of Duty SVP and GM Rob Kostich. “According to NPD, Call of Duty also was the largest release of any title in North America since 2013, based on physical units sold at retail in its launch month. There’s tremendous momentum for Call of Duty this holiday. Both retail and digital sales are up significantly versus the same time last year. And our community has responded enthusiastically, driving engagement to new franchise highs on next gen consoles in its first month of release.”
In addition, NPD stated that Black Ops 3’s November sales were higher than that of last year’s Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare sales.
In addition, according to the chart, Black Ops 3 at retail US sold more on Xbox One than on PS4 console, although Activision announced in November that Black Ops 3 was the biggest digital launch on PS4 in history. NPD data does not include digital sales.
