Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 sets a new high mark for console digital units. We estimate Black Ops 4 sold an estimated 4.2 million units in October on consoles, a new single month record for digital console sales.

SuperData also noted that the PC version of the game grew significantly compared to WWII’s release in 2017, but concluded that it was still a minority of the overall user base.

Black Ops 4’s main competition was Red Dead Redemption 2, which was released on October 26.

While it didn’t manage to break the monthly sales record given that it released near the end of the month, SuperData did confirm that it sold four million digital units in its first seven days of availability.
