Call of Duty: Ghosts has failed to outsell Black Ops 2 at launch.

Despite retailers spending $1bn on Call of Duty: Ghosts launch stock, sales are down on last year's release.

In an earnings call, Activision's Dennis Durkin blamed lower sales on the transition to next-gen consoles.

"Today, we announced that we had shipped into retail more than $1bn of Call of Duty: Ghosts globally on day one based on an average wholesale price," said Durkin (via Forbes).

"As expected, due to the console transition and digital distribution, this number is down versus last year.

"This year, the sell-through curve will be different than in past years due to the multiple launches of new hardware later in the month and more days between our launch and the high-volume Black Friday at the end of the month."

Call of Duty: Ghosts is out now for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC and Wii U.
