Call of Duty Earned $3B in 12 Months; New Season Delayed

Activision is pushing back the launch of Season One for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and Warzone from December 10 to December 16. A separate announcement notes the series has taken in over $3 billion in the past year, so they may be trying to protect their cash cow from the release of Cyberpunk 2077, but they do not specify whether or not this is their reasoning. They do say they are offering XP bonuses and free content to all players. This post has all the details and here's a summary:
The release date of Season One across the new Black Ops Cold War and free-to-play, free-for-everyone Warzone has been moved from December 10 to December 16.

Season One is the largest free content drop in Black Ops history: a massive expansion of free content, including the comprehensive integration of Operators, weapons, player progression, and Battle Pass rewards across Black Ops Cold War and Warzone.

To thank players for their continued support and patience, Treyarch will be enabling Double XP and Double Weapon XP in Black Ops Cold War from 10AM PT Saturday, Dec. 12 until the launch of Season One.

Two free bundles will also become available to all Black Ops Cold War players through a new Pre-Season offer. Players simply need to log in between 10AM PT Dec. 8 and 11PM PT Dec. 15 to claim both bundles.

This year they became the new most popular mobile shooter with 300M+ downloads and they have 85M+ registered users for Warzone on consoles and PC... That's in addition to their annual full-price AAA releases, which aren't selling quite so well as they used to, but now have microtransactions and season passes and all that stuff. If anything, $3 billion is lower than I would have expected, but the franchise is definitely on the rise again.

I'm just glad for Warzone. It's one of the few free games I play regularly.

Lol, 3 billion? There truly is no hope for humanity, haha.

Gaming is mainstream and has been for awhile, everything about CoD is a re-hash - but the audience that plays that are partially bankrolling the titles I enjoy, directly and indirectly, so live and let live. The CoD players will continue to play it and it's similar titles or they may also start buying the titles I like, which is better for me. Those that do and will only ever play CoD-like games are gamers of a different stripe and only once in awhile do our paths cross.
