During the call with the actions of Activision, not only were the first details revealed about Call of Duty 2021 but also an account was made of the growing success of the series to which they contributed Call of Duty Warzone e Call of Duty Mobile.
Thanks to the free battle royale and its recent integration with Black Ops Cold War, in fact, more and more players are buying the latest chapter of the series or investing in microtransactions. In the last year a 60% increase in receipts due to in-game package purchases and first two seasons of Black Ops Cold War are the ones that have been most successful since the launch of Modern Warfare Season 1. Even Season 3 of COD Black Ops Cold War seems to have started with a bang and it cannot be excluded that further milestones can be reached by its end. COD Mobile is also doing very well and just recently reached a new record, namely 500 million downloads.
As if that were not enough, Activision’s revenues have also grown compared to those of the previous year: we are talking about 2.275 billion dollars of the current year against 2.015 billion dollars last year. We do not know the exact share of the revenue related to the Call of Duty franchise, but it has been confirmed that they have been collected 1.34 billion dollars thanks to microtransactions alone, surpassing last year’s results in this field as well.
