Call of Duty: Ghosts is dominating Xbox Live and was the most pre-order title at US retailer GameStop. Activision didn't reveal actual unit figures that were shipped.
"Ghosts is an amazing game which ushers in the next generation of Call of Duty," said Activision's Eric Hirshberg.
"This is the must have launch title for the next generation of consoles, and we expect Call of Duty: Ghosts to be the most successful launch title for the Xbox One and PS4 by a wide margin. In fact, according to GameStop, Call of Duty: Ghosts is their most pre-reserved next gen title."
