Call of Duty Black Ops 2 makes $500 million during launch day

News PC Activision FPS Playstation 3 Xbox 360

Today Activision announced that Call of Duty Black Ops 2 managed to make $500 million during its first day on sale, breaking the franchise’s previously set record of $400 million which was set last year by the release of Modern Warfare 3. While Activision did not announce how many copes were sold, last year’s number saw 6.5 million copies sold in the US and UK so it is easy to see that a larger number were sold this time around.

We’ve seen plenty of information alluding to Call of Duty Black Ops 2 becoming one of the best selling games ever as GameStop has already reported that over 1 million copies were sold at their chain alone while Amazon revealed that the game was their most pre-ordered title ever.

After playing games since a young age and getting into anime a bit later on its been time to write about a little bit of everything.
