Black Ops III passes Infinite Warfare in console total digital revenue
Last year’s Call of Duty iteration has reportedly surpassed the total digital revenue of the franchise’s most recent title.
Black Ops III moved into the top five for digital revenue in console games, while Infinite Warfare fell down to seventh on the list, according to SuperData Research.
The biggest reason why Black Ops III moved up on this list? The Zombies Chronicles DLC map pack was released on PlayStation 4 in May.
Zombies Chronicles is the biggest zombies map pack in Call of Duty history, featuring eight remastered zombies maps from previous Treyarch games on Black Ops III. For just $29.99, players could get their hands on classic zombies maps, including Nacht der Untoten, Verrückt, Shi No Numa, Kino der Toten, Ascension, Shangri-La, Moon, and Origins.
Although Infinite Warfare has released DLC map packs, none could live up to the hype of the biggest and most highly-anticipated zombies experience in Call of Duty history.
Since Infinite Warfare’s last DLC pack was released on April 18, the game should be getting more maps relatively soon—which could help bridge the gap on this list between Infinite Warfare and Black Ops III.
Though Black Ops III is a year older than Infinite Warfare, it's still impressive to see two Call of Duty titles in the top 10 for console total digital revenue—and it will be even more interesting to see where Call of Duty: WWII ends up on this list once the game is released on Nov. 3, 2017.
