Call of Duty has been the Best-Selling Gaming Franchise for 12 Years
For the last 12 years, the Call of Duty franchise has dominated the US market, and this year is no different. According to new data unveiled this morning by The NPD Group, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is the most successful video game in the past year.
The NPD Group also stated that Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War was not only the number one selling video game for December 2020, but it also topped the sales chart for the entire year. Call of Duty‘s 2019 release, Modern Warfare, also finished second in the best-selling games on 2020, showcasing Treyarch and Activision’s enormous accomplishments this year.
The Call of Duty franchise has held this title for the 12th consecutive year in the U.S. market. The NPD Group only tracks data from the United States, so this isn’t a representation of worldwide sales. But there is no denying the success of the Call of Duty franchise, which is why you could question how it takes so long for them to balance parts of the game.
