Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 rekindles popularity to Black Ops 3
The proximity of the new Treyarch shooter triggers the number of players from the previous installment signed by them.
The ripple effect of video games often has curious repercussions. Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is released on October 12 of this year on PC, PS4 and Xbox One, and its closeness is causing an unexpected amplification effect in other games in the Call of Duty series.
For example now Activision has announced its commercial results for the second quarter of 2018, and has revealed that, against all expectations, the video games that have generated the most net income (whether adding physical, digital and in-game content sales), have been Call of Duty : WWII (last year's installment), Destiny 2 and, in addition, the already veteran Call of Duty: Black Ops 3.
The beta of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 starts this weekend in its version of PS4, something that seems to have raised the desire of fans to play frenetic experiences of a competitive nature. In June, for example, Black Ops 3 itself has reached its maximum number of users playing it, with more than 15 million people. Something especially worthwhile considering that it is a game from 2015.
Activision has already expressed on more than one occasion that it trusts that this video game is the best-selling of the entire series and, in fact, the reservations of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 exceeded those of Call of Duty: WWII in May.
