Activision’s Call of Duty series has again topped the sales charts, with the publisher claiming the latest iteration, Black Ops III, was the best-selling game in 2015 worldwide.

According to Activision, it was 2015’s top seller “by a wide margin in both units and dollars sold through.” In North America, Call of Duty was the best-selling franchise for the seventh year in a row. The franchise has now topped the 250 million units sold mark.  Rob Kostich, Activison’s president and general manager of the Call of Duty franchise, said in a statement,

“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. 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.”

Call of Duty: Black Ops III was released on November 6th for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC. Did you buy 2015’s best selling game? What did you think? Tell us in the comments below and stay tuned here at Gamer Assault Weekly for all your gaming needs.
