Black Ops becomes the biggest entertainment launch ever, beats MW 2

Posted By | On 11th, Nov. 2010

Shit just got real.

Call of Duty: Black Ops released just a day ago and it has already overthrown Modern Warfare 2 and took the crown of the biggest entertainment launch in history for itself.

Call of Duty: Black Ops sold 5.6 million copies (approx) on launch day in NA and EU combined. This beats Modern Warfare 2’s 4.7 million copies sold in last year.

“There has never been another entertainment franchise that has set opening day records for two consecutive years and we are on track to outperform last year’s five-day global sales record of $550 million,” said Acti head Bobby Kotick.

“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. The Call of Duty franchise has over 25 million players around the world that are engaged in billions of hours of online gameplay, and we are committed to supporting them with new content and features on a more frequent and regular basis.”

The game has made $310 since its launch on November 9.

Madness, really.
