Sales of the latest edition in the “Call of Duty” video game franchise topped $1 billion in the first day, the publisher said Wednesday.

“Call of Duty: Ghosts,” which went on sale around the world on Tuesday, “has delivered yet another epic thrill ride in the campaign, and what I think is our best multiplayer game yet,” said Eric Hirshberg, chief executive of Activision Publishing.
