Activision are never one to shy away from blowing their own trumpet, and today is no exception.
They have announced that it took a mere 15 days for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 to gross over $1 Billion, which beat Modern Warfare 3 buy just a day; it took that game 16 days to hit the milestone.
As you can imagine, Activison and Treyarch are proud as punch!
“The release of Call of Duty has been one of the most significant entertainment events of each of the last six years,” said Bobby Kotick, CEO of Activision Blizzard. “Since Call of Duty was launched, cumulative franchise revenues from players around the world are greater than current worldwide box office receipts to date for the top-10 grossing films of 2012 combined. Life-to-date sales for the Call of Duty franchise have exceeded worldwide theatrical box office receipts for ‘Harry Potter’ and ‘Star Wars,’ the two most successful movie franchises of all time.”
