The Call of Duty series has set new franchise records.

Following the release of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, the Call of Duty franchise has surpassed over $3 billion in net bookings over the last 12 months.

This figure represents performance metrics across engagement and premium game sales at all-time, franchise highs over the period.

Activision notes year-to-date increases include net bookings up over 80% and units sold through up over 40% year-over-year with over 200 million people having played Call of Duty this year

On console and PC, the franchise has delivered the highest number of players in recorded history this year, as well as the biggest November ever for monthly players and hours played.

Players of Black Ops Cold War can expect free, post-release content as new seasons of content, with Season One set to debut this month.

This also includes community events and ongoing support plus integration with Warzone which has surpassed more than 85 million players since release. Warzone will soon integrate with both Black Ops Cold War and Modern Warfare.
