Activision provided the following statement regarding Call of Duty: Black Ops 3’s success. In the statement, Activision revealed that the Call of Duty franchise has sold over 250 million units life to date worldwide.

“Call of Duty: Black Ops III was the top selling title of 2015 globally by a wide-margin in both units and dollars sold-thru. This also marks the seventh year in a row that Call of Duty has been the #1 selling franchise in North America, according to NPD. In fact, Call of Duty has surpassed 250 million units sold life-to-date worldwide.  This achievement is thanks to the amazing experiences created by all of our development teams, and would not be possible without the  incredible passion from the Call of Duty community.

Sony issued a statement earlier this evening that the PlayStation 4 console was the best selling console of December 2015 and of the year in the US.

“As we reflect on an amazing year, we want to thank fans and partners for making PlayStation 4 the top selling console in December and in 2015. PS4 also had the strongest third-party software sales in 2015 in the U.S., according to NPD.

The momentum and enthusiasm for the platform continued throughout the year, resulting in cumulative sales of more than 35.9 million since the launch of PS4. During the holiday season alone, more than 5.7 million PS4s and 35 million PS4 games were sold through to consumers worldwide. We look forward to another great year and bringing an extensive portfolio of games from our publisher partners and SCE Worldwide Studios to fans in 2016.”

Patch Update 1.33 for Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 live now

Published

on

A new patch update for Treyarch’s 2015 release, Call of Duty: Black Ops 3, is now live on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

The patch update is version 1.33 and is 1.5GB on PS4 and 2GB on Xbox One.

The new patch update does not appear to bring any new content to the game. It may be similar to the Call of Duty: WWII update that released last week, in that it’s a new security update to match state privacy laws.

This is one the first updates for Black Ops 3 in a long time. The company stopped supporting the game after Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’s content season went into full gear.

We will update if notes are provided.
