According to Gamespot, the NPD Group has released its monthly video games report for sales in the US covering both December and the entire year of 2015.
Sitting at the top of the list was Call of Duty: Black Ops III. Not only did Call of Duty hit the top of the charts, but Black Ops III brought the total number of sales for the franchise past 250 million units sold.
“This achievement is thanks to the amazing experiences created by all of our development teams, and would not be possible without the incredible passion from the Call of Duty community,” Rob Kostich, Activison’s president and general manager of the Call of Duty franchise, said in a statement. “We congratulate Treyarch on creating an incredibly engaging and an enormously fun game with Black Ops III and look forward to what’s to come in 2016.”
Back in November we gave Call of Duty: Black Ops III a 9/10 for it’s solid shooting mechanics, beautiful visuals, and massive amount of content through the three different game modes, Campaign, Multiplayer, and Zombies.
