According to Activision’s Day 1 sale estimates, Call of Duty: Black Ops ( developed by Treyarch ) has sold 5.6 million copies, all in all raking in $360 million. That’s $50 million more than Modern Warfare 2’s sales, which sold 4.7 million copies on day one. So basically, Black Ops and Modern Warfare 2 are the two biggest game launches ever, respectively.
“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,” says Bobby Kottick, the boss over at Activision.
