The latest entry into the hit shooter franchise, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, has been out for nearly a week, but in its first three days the game has already set a new record for Activision with over $500 million grossed, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

According to figures provided by Niko Partners analyst Daniel Ahmad, Black Ops 4's $500 million launch weekend revenues match earnings made by 2017's Call of Duty: WWII.

In its opening weekend following release, Activision is reporting that Black Ops 4 raked in more than half a billion dollars.

"There will always be those that lament it for the lack of a single player campaign, but what Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 does for its multiplayer experience is nothing less than phenomenal". Activision's monumental Black Ops II still holds the record with $500 million earned in just the first day of launch.

Getting the edge over the competition is every gamer's goal, luckily Shacknews is here with a collection of strategies, guides, walkthroughs, tutorials and more to help players claim victory. The game is rated M for Mature (Blood and Gore, Drug Reference, Intense Violence, Strong Language). What's more, this is pre-release, meaning numbers could be even more impressive for October. Black Ops originally took place in the 1960s era Cold War, with its sequel jumping to 2025 and the third game landing in 2065.
