Call Of Duty: Vanguard Sales Are Proving Its Critics Wrong
Call of Duty: Vanguard has been a lot of fun for a lot of fans. It has also been a travesty for others. Who could have seen that coming? But, as it turns out, it doesn't really matter much - as Call of Duty: Vanguard sales mean it's selling like hotcakes.
We've seen a lot of different reactions to Vanguard since its release, and while many are incredibly happy to get back to business after Black Ops Cold War was seen as generally disappointing, others aren't so enthusiastic about the new WWII shooter.
Granted, these cries of fury boom from Reddit, the echoiest of the internet's echo chambers, but the criticism is there regardless - and often, it's entirely valid. After some general growing pains and a blatantly unfinished Zombies mode, fans (we use the term loosely, of course) have had plenty to say.
Call Of Duty: Vanguard Sales: What's Going On?
Last month was a big one for the leading shooters, with Call of Duty: Vanguard and Battlefield 2042 topping the sales charts in the US with little competition.
As of right now, Battlefield 2042 is the sixth best-selling game of the year, whereas Vanguard almost instantly leapt to the number two spot, standing as the 14th Call of Duty game in a row to be the highest-selling game of its release month. Blimey.
Has Vanguard Already Crushed Battlefield 2042?
If we're considering this purely by game sales, then there's no doubt that Vanguard has dominated Battlefield 2042 - but truly, there was never any doubt of this. The real race that the two shooters would have to content with would be for cultural significance and the potential to be the very best of their own franchises - a feat that, so far, both have failed to achieve.
Battlefield has suffered its fair share of problems at launch and Vanguard is in many ways just another Call of Duty title in a long line. Though, of course, the consumer doesn't seem to mind - because its sheer dominance of the charts seem to prove that the franchise has no reason to change course.
The continued success of Call of Duty is truly no surprise, and it seems as though it can't be as bad a game as it seems if it's selling so well. Then again, remember we have seen Call of Duty franchise sales plummet in the UK. Whatever you think, congratulations to the Call of Duty franchise, though we're confident it doesn't need our well-wishes.
