Activision has today declared that Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is the best selling console video game in the US for 2016, based on total revenue from physical sales.
The news comes after NPD Group’s latest figures showed the title was the best selling game of November, despite being down 51 percent in terms of unit sales compared to last year’s Black Ops 3.
However, it is believed that in terms of total revenue, Infinite Warfare was down closer to 25 percent, owing to the offset offered by the increased MSRP of the title’s Legacy Edition, which includes a digital copy of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered.
In a press release announcing the news, Activision also confirmed that the Call of Duty franchise is the number one console video game franchise in North America for the eighth consecutive year, based on year-to-date revenue from physical sales.
Activision CEO Eric Hirshberg said: “In addition to our annual blockbuster release, Call of Duty is about engaging fans year around. Black Ops 3 has had amazing engagement all year and now with the classic, boots on the ground gameplay of Modern Warfare Remastered, and the thrilling new experiences of Infinite Warfare, we have a great experience for every Call of Duty fan this holiday.”
