Within the first weekend of the UK boxed sales for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, it appears that physical sales are down 50% when compared to Call of Duty: WWII. Going back to Black Ops III, we can see a massive 59% in physical sale drops, making this the weakest physical sale launch for the Call of Duty franchise since 2007's Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare.

This is not really surprising at all, since most players are now looking towards digital purchasing options when it comes to games as it is much more convenient. A prime example of this is the fact that 58% of physical sales were on PS4, Xbox One came in with 41% and PC held the remainder. These figures show that most PC gamers stuck to the convenience of buying a digital copies through the client or other services, while console gamers decided physical copies of their games could be more worthwhile.
