Activision announced today that Call of Duty: WWII generated over $500 million in worldwide sales in its first three days of release (or "opening weekend", as the publisher puts it). So what Call of Duty: WWII has really achieved, I think, is returning the franchise to the level of prestige it previously enjoyed. That's why Activision convinced Sledgehammer Games to develop Call of Duty: WW2 instead. "At the end of the day it just didn't feel enough like Call of Duty".
Talking further about the success to the new game the CEO of Activision, Eric Hirshberg, said "Call of Duty: WWII returns the franchise to its roots and the results are incredible." . Having set out the stall for the jet pack and human augmented combat that survived through Advanced Warfare, Black Ops 3 and Infinite Warfare, the company wanted to carry on the universe they had created.

Turns out that Activision either listened to their fans, or the fact Infinite Warfare sales were not too great, and canned an early bid for Advanced Warfare 2. "And we're committed to supporting the community with continuous improvements and new content".
