In addition, if you strip out games sold as part of Xbox One hardware bundles, Ghosts is the platform’s best-selling game in the UK, too.

As we’ve said before, we’ve got the best community of fans in the world and we’re thrilled they’re coming with us to the next generation.”

Microsoft’s corporate VP of marketing and strategy Yusuf Mehdi added: As home to the largest and most engaged Call of Duty community, it is no surprise that the newest entry in the blockbuster franchise has quickly become the most played multiplayer game on both Xbox One and Xbox 360.

We congratulate our partners at Activision and Infinity Ward and are proud to continue offering the best and most engaging Call of Duty online experience to our fans globally by launching all Call of Duty: Ghosts map packs first only on Xbox.”
