Call of Duty WWII was most downloaded PS4 game of 2017

Despite coming out just two months before 2017 ended, Sledgehammer Games' latest Call of Duty entry storms the download charts on Sony's PlayStation Network.

Per recent figures on Sony's PlayStation Blog, Call of Duty: WWII was the top downloaded PS4 game of 2017, which says a lot about what gamers actually want in the series. While Activision was quick to tout the game's huge sales figures--CoD: WWII made over $500 million in its opening weekend, putting it close to Black Ops II's astronomical numbers--other sources have corroborated the title's massive success. NPD analyst Mat Piscatella affirmed Call of Duty: WWII is the best-selling game of 2017 in the U.S., and Activision has since confirmed the game has made over $1 billion in earnings just a month or so after launch.

 

"Call of Duty WWII was November's best-selling game overall, and instantly becomes the best-selling video game of both 2017 year-to-date as well as the rolling 12 month period ending November 2017," NPD Group analyst Mat Piscatella wrote in a recent report.

 

Activision holds the two top PS4 game download spots with Call of Duty: WWII and Destiny 2, but what's pretty interesting is that Grand Theft Auto V holds the fifth top spot despite coming out in 2013. GTA Online is a huge boon for Take-Two and churns tons of new game purchases as well as millions in revenue every quarter...and we're betting Red Dead Redemption 2 will one-up the game in more than a few ways.
