From Eurogamer

In a note to press, Activision said it had shifted to a "shared ecosystem business model" for Call of Duty, which has seen the launch of battle royale Warzone, mobile hit Call of Duty: Mobile, and Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold war this year.

The mention of a "shared ecosystem" relates to the emergence of Warzone and the integration of Modern Warfare and Black Ops Cold War into it. From mid-December, Black Ops Cold War and Warzone share battle pass progression, and you'll be able to level up and get XP no matter which game you play.

The $3bn figure is the net amount of products and services sold digitally or sold-in physically during the last 12 months, and includes license fees, merchandise and publisher incentives, Activision said.

They haven't made any money from me. I do play Warzone a fair bit with friends but I've never bought any MT's or packs or whatever they are

(It would take over 90 years for you to count to 3 billion)

Three stonking billion smackeroos, and still these bloody money-grubbers want to jack up game prices to $70 + special editions. Meanwhile, Activision releases essentially the same bloody game re-skinned every bloody year, and still rake in the bloody cash. Bloody bloody bloody.

Tell me again, human race, why should I have any shred of faith in you yapping apes?

Warzone (BlOPS3 BR to be exact) gave the series a new birth. If it wasn't for it, this thing would've been in heavy decline like the whole thing was prior to Black Ops 3 BR.

I always enjoy seeing Greedy Bobby kotick. This guy will gladly sell his own family for gold. What a classic greedy guy he really is.

This is why I don't support the rising prices for games just because a new generation has released. It's just a way for developers and publishers to make more money.

The last time CRAPtivison got money from me was when Blur released on the 360, haven't bought anything from them since, a terrible company.

Which reminds me i need to find a used copy of the recent Tony Hawk remasters so they don't get a cent from me, and another reason to keep physical alive so we can screw over greedy company like this mob.

He's saying it because he's a casual, and because Sony has a year exclusivity over a game mode (don't ask which one because i didn't care enough to take notice lol) yeah he's that much of a shill.

Impressive numbers. The only game franchise to gross more than this in a single year is Pokemon.

But COD still sucks as a game.

They should be ashamed that they put CoD on cell phones but not on the Switch? I mean even the Witcher 3 runs on the switch they could make a cod for it.

I know you're joking, but on a similar note, the two best things about CoD: Warzone and the only reason I play it is a.) not exclusive and b.) cross-play.

Say what you want about the game, this is the first time in over a decade I've been able to play online with my real-life friends who are all on console.

COD is functional cross play between PC Xbox PS, it supports voice chat between all platforms, Warzone is F2P. They are making a killing on cosmetics and battle passes. Honestly good for them. They made moves that are changing the game. If other MP games want this kind of success then support cross play like this.

Well, they lock much of your progression behind the Battle Pass nonsense. They've even shoehorned it into zombies
