Well almost 1 year ago exactly Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 set a record as the biggest entertainment launch in history pulling in 310 million dollars in sales. Well Call Of Duty: Black Ops brought in 360 million in sales. INSANE. 2 years running Activision and its 2 Call Of Duty producing children Treyarch and Infinity Ward destroyed the competition.
Although it does help sales having a multi-platform release, none the less they have still together pulled in close to a billion dollars. “There has never been another entertainment franchise that has set opening day records for two consecutive years and we are on track to outperform last year’s five-day global sales record of $550 million,” said Bobby Kotick, CEO, Activision Blizzard, Inc. “The game’s success underscores the pop culture appeal of the brand. Call of Duty: Black Ops is the finest game that Treyarch has ever made and raises the bar for online gameplay by delivering the deepest and most intense Call of Duty experience yet. The Call of Duty franchise has over 25 million players around the world that are engaged in billions of hours of online gameplay, and we are committed to supporting them with new content and features on a more frequent and regular basis.”
