Despite the various criticisms of the game by fans, who did not appreciate the recent arrival of the loot boxes, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 was a success and the microtransactions were fundamental for Activision.
In fact, the publisher stated in a recent financial report that the Black Ops 4 in-game purchases have far exceeded expectations, surpassing those of Call of Duty: World War II. The success of the title was not only calculated based on revenues, but also by comparing the number of active users and hours played. Compared to its predecessor, Black Ops 4 boasts not only a greater number of connected players but also 50% more hours of play. It is very likely that the constant arrival of new events and seasons has played a primary role in the success of the game, thanks to which players can also obtain for free a fair number of objects for the personalization of the characters and additional weapons.
Speaking of updates, we would like to remind you that the Black Ops 4 Pandemic mode has been introduced recently.
