Call of Duty: Vanguard Series’ Worst UK Launch in 15 Years

Call of Duty: Vanguard Series’ Worst UK Launch in 15 Years .

Early numbers are in from the UK, and it seems Call of Duty: Vanguard’s launch sales are down 40 percent year-on-year. According to the folks at Video Games Chronicle, Vanguard is the CoD franchise’s lower-performing launch in 14 years. That basically takes us back to the pre-modern era of Call of Duty, before the original Modern Warfare turned CoD from a big franchise to the biggest franchise. Now, CoD: Vanguard still debuted at #1 on the UK charts, and we don’t have sales figures from other territories yet, but it’s an early sign of weakness from Activision’s latest.

California’s Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) has filed suit against Activision Blizzard, alleging widespread gender-based discrimination and sexual harassment at the Call of Duty publisher. You can get more detail on that unfolding story here. Acti-Blizz CEO Bobby Kotick has himself been accused of covering for harassers and mistreating female employees in a new report published today.
