Wow, I mean who ever didn’t see this coming probably missed the boat on a lot of things in life, but this is just amazing. Today Activision has announced that the Treyarch developed Call of Duty: Black Ops II has grossed $1 Billion dollars in 15 DAYS! That is just astounding!
Lets put this in to perspective, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 made $1 Billion in 16 days, and Avatar (the movie not the game) made $1 Billion in 17 days. That means that Call of Duty: Black Ops II has surpassed virtually every entertainment release in recent memory for worldwide sales numbers. Now this number doesn’t factor in the Season Pass sales, and the people that will be purchasing the game as a gift for family and friends over the next few weeks as Christmas gifts. It certainly does seem that Activision has figured out a winning formula with this annual series of video games, the only remaining question is what can they do next?
