Activision knows what their fans want. The video game publisher has faced backlash in recent years, with gamers slowly growing tired of Call Of Duty.

Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII launched for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on October 12. All three titles have been praised by fans, and of course the "Zombie Mode" also helps sell the game. With pressure mounting, Activision made a decision to dive back into the Black Ops series with a fourth installment.

Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII was the biggest day one digital release in Activision history, breaking the franchise record set by Call of Duty: WWII in 2017, the company announced.

The multiplayer first-person shooter game set the launch day record for digital releases in Activision history, breaking the record set past year by Call of Duty: WWII, the company said Sunday. In a Reddit post detailing day one bug fixes and planned changes, it said that it was "aware that players have been able to use Gestures (often referred to by the community as "Emotes") to peek around corners in modes where that can create an unfair advantage".

The press release also included a comment from Call of Duty Executive Vice President and General Manager Rob Kostrich.

Many are hailing Black Ops 4 as the best Call of Duty game in years, and while that definitely feels a tad premature, it's certainly not the cynical offering some were expecting, especially with the one notable gameplay exclusion which has sharply divided the fanbase.

"Black Ops 4 is an incredible game, and the community's response to it has been unbelievable".
