Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare by the numbers
Activision Publishing has been shy about disclosing the number of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare copies that it has sold - or how much revenue the game is generating in comparison to last year's Call of Duty: Ghosts. A division of Activision Blizzard and one of the biggest game companies on Earth, has disclosed just about every other number related to Advanced Warfare. The publisher has said that the Call of Duty franchise has generated more than $10 billion in revenue in the past decade, but it has been mum on each game's revenue. The number matters to analysts because the success of Call of Duty - arguably the industry's most valuable franchise - is closely connected to Activision Blizzard's stock price. In an infographic, Activision announced today that 125 million people have played Call of Duty since 2010. Viewers also watched 5 million hours of Call of Duty livestreamed gameplay videos on Twitch. On Nov. 19, Activision said that Call of Duty was the top entertainment property of 2014. Overall, Activision claimed that Call of Duty had generated more revenue than household movie franchises as The Hunger Games, Transformers, Iron Man, and The Avengers combined.
