The next-gen consoles love Call of Duty: Ghosts as it was just announced it is the top selling game for both the Xbox One and PS4.
Activision made the announcement yesterday and included in their totals with both the European and North American totals. The company did not reveal specific numbers, but suggested they did not make as much as the previous year.
"Our better-than-expected performance was driven by record digital sales in Blizzard Entertainment's franchises, including World of Warcraft, Diablo, and Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft in addition to Activision Publishing's Skylanders and Call of Duty franchises," said Activision CEO Bobby Kotick according to MCVUK. "We have a strong product pipeline for the balance of the year, beginning with the September 9th planned launch of Destiny, which we believe could become our next billion dollar franchise and the largest new videogame IP launch in history."
In other news, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare has been announced as the next game is the series and will release on Nov. 4, announced Activision last week. The game will also feature the voice talents of actor Kevin Spacey.
According to Activision, Spacey will play the lead villain in the game, and it will also feature his likeness. He is the head of a private military corporation.
The first trailer reveals hoverbikes, cloaking devices, and special abilities for characters. "In the next Call of Duty, the world's most powerful military is not a country. It's a corporation," a promotional video for the game said.
Polygon reported Advanced Warfare will be for the PC, Xbox One, and PS4.
