It is also the fastest-selling COD game of this console generation (via GamesIndustry.biz) over its four predecessors that were available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

Thankfully [for Activision], this year's Call of Duty: WWII launch has been much better received by gamers.

Ever since Call of Duty: WWII was announced people have been incredibly excited for the series to go back to its World War 2 roots. Call of Duty: WWII focuses on the actions of a squad from 1944 to 1945, but will also touch on events from 1940 to 1944 to help set the stage for the narrative and establish the characters.

Do we still congratulate Activision or just let them roll around in their tubs of money at this point? In Call of Duty: WWII, you won't be ending the games right away with the V2 Rocket killstreak, but you'll still do some serious damage as shown towards the end of the PwnStarz video shown below, assuming you can meet the requirements.
