Activision says they will retake records lost to Rockstar

Activision is aiming to retake the top of the podium when it comes to the records Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto V snatched from the Call of Duty franchise.

In an interview with MCV, UK senior brand manager Kevin Flynn said the Call of Duty series will take back the records it lost, including the UK’s fastest selling game ever.

“Congratulations to the team at Rockstar for their success,” he said. “We look forward to getting the record back before the next GTA title.”
Despite the fact that sales figures have dropped slightly year after year, Flynn said the release of Call of Duty: Ghosts will show other companies that their series is still capable dominating the market.

GTA V currently holds seven Guinness World Records, and made up 50 percent of all software sales in the United States during the month of September.

Call of Duty: Ghosts is set to release on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC and Wii U on November 5, with PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions hitting shelves when the consoles launch.
