Activision has announced that their latest hit, Call of Duty: Black ops has reached a massive $1 billion in sales worldwide, since it went on sale in November, which is pretty impressive to say the least.
Call of Duty: Black Ops made more than $650 million worldwide in the first five days since the launch, and it broke last years record of $500 million which was set by Call of Duty: Modern Warefare 2.
“In all of entertainment, only Call of Duty and “Avatar” have ever achieved the billion dollar revenue milestone this quickly,” said Bobby Kotick, CEO of Activision Blizzard. “This is a tribute to the global appeal of the Call of Duty franchise, the exceptional talent at Treyarch and the hundreds of extraordinary people across our many Call of Duty studios including Infinity Ward and Sledgehammer that work tirelessly on the franchise. Our ability to provide the most compelling, immersive entertainment experience, and enhance it with regular, recurring content that delivers hundreds of hours of audience value, has allowed Call of Duty to continue to set sales and usage records.”
These are some pretty impressive sales figures, and we expect that Call of Duty: Black Ops will end up being one of the most popular games of all time.Filed Under: Gaming News
