SuperData Research analytical firm has released the latest data for the worldwide video games industry for October 2019.
The firm has provided two data points for Call of Duty, one for Modern Warfare and one for Call of Duty: Mobile.
The data shows that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare sold an estimated 4.75 million digital units on PS4, Xbox One, and PC worldwide in October. Modern Warfare is the best selling digital game of 2019. This is actually down 11% from Black Ops 4’s launch in October 2018, but that is due to the fact that Black Ops 4 launched two weeks early in October last year compared to Modern Warfare.
In addition, the data suggests that majority of users opted for the standard edition instead of higher editions because of the lack of a Season Pass bundle. The company has removed Season Passes for this year’s game, making post launch maps and more free for the community.
