Call of Duty continues to stumble (well slightly, it's all relative after all), with latest entry Advanced Warfare's sales down 27 percent in November compared to last year's Ghosts.
The figures come from analyst firm Piper Jaffray, and were released to StreetInsider. Despite impressive initial sales and critical praise for Slegehammer's game, it seems the shooter franchise hasn't quite recaptured its glory days just yet.
“This is disappointing data following first week of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare sales showing a y/y increase,” writes analyst Michael Olson. “NPD data does not include digital copies or international sales, which, if included, would lessen the y/y decline, but we believe this data suggests potential for Q4 revenue upside is now very low.”
Despite those unwelcome figures, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare remains one of the biggest-selling titles of the year. It's a rare series that can suffer year on year sales decline and still remain the biggest title around.
