Call Of Duty: Vanguard’s UK Launch Sales Dropped 40% From The Previous Year

Call of Duty: Van­guard’s launch sales in the UK are down about 40% com­pared to last year’s game, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. Phys­i­cal sales are down around 26%, while dig­i­tal sale dropped 44%–but this isn’t sur­pris­ing.

This infor­ma­tion comes from GSD (report­ed by, which placed Call of Duty: Van­guard as the sec­ond biggest game launch of 2021 in the UK, fol­low­ing behind FIFA 22. Despite the drop in sales in the UK, Call of Duty: Van­guard is still expect­ed to be the best-sell­ing game of 2021 in the US. World War II entries typ­i­cal­ly sell less than oth­er Call of Duty titles that are set in the mod­ern/n­ear-mod­ern/fea­ture based entires. Tre­yarch devel­oped games, much like Black Ops Cold war, are his­tor­i­cal­ly the best-sell­ing titles in the series.

Activi­sion also chose a poor time to release Call of Duty: Van­guard. Novem­ber is host­ing oth­er big shoot­er titles, includ­ing Bat­tle­field 2042 and well as the sur­prise release of the Halo Infi­nite mul­ti­play­er. Van­guard is set to be inte­grat­ed with War­zone on Decem­ber 2nd with Sea­son One.

Although the sales have dropped com­pared to last year, Van­guard still man­aged to launch as the num­ber one game in the UK for the week, push­ing out FIFA 22, Mar­vel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, and Mary Par­ty Superstars.
