The latest Call of Duty video game has successfully surpassed the record set by Grand Theft Auto V, which raked in $800m (£496m) on its first day in September. On Tuesday, the first person shooter franchise gam made more than $1bn as confirmed by its publisher.
Thousands of fans patiently queued at different stores in the UK, which opened at midnight for the release of the 10th Call of Duty installment.
Eric Hirshberg, chief executive of Activision, said the game "has delivered yet another epic thrill ride in the campaign, and what I think is our best multiplayer game yet".
The Computer and Video Games website said: "There is an overwhelming sense of familiarity one gets from playing Call of Duty: Ghosts and that's probably because an iteration of this series drops every year without truly reinventing the wheel."
