Call of Duty Black Ops 2 grosses $1 billion in 15 days

Chart-Track data shows that Activision’s Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 has sold a metric-ton of units and earned the firm $1 billion in just 15 days since it officially launched.

Black Ops 2 has crossed $1 billion of revenue in just 15 days, taking one day less than last year’s Modern Warfare 3, which took 16 days to get to the $1 billion mark (if you’re too lazy to add 1 to 15). This makes Black Ops 2 the fastest selling entertainment product ever to reach $1 billion. The 2009 film Avatar made it to the milestone with 17 days on the box office.

If we take $50 to be the average price at which a copy is being sold, you get approximately 20 million units sales so far. Let’s say we subtract, shall we say, 4 million, taking into account revenue from other sources, accessories and of course, piracy, that still means Black Ops 2 has sold in the region of 16 million units in 15 days.

These are not officially released figures, of course. Just our calculations. There could be zero truth to them, for all we know.

Black Ops 2 grossed over $500 million in its first 24 hours on sale, and sold as many as 1 million copies during its GameStop midnight launch events across the US itself. It even crossed 11 million sales in a week, according to reports. It even topped the Xbox Live activity charts, toppling Halo 4, though that was actually expected.

Our reviewer of Black Ops 2 wasn’t very impressed with the game, and our Editor Ravi Sinha was also critical of the shooter in his opinion piece. However, in another one of our editorials, we took a look at the positive side of Blops 2 and why it might be the best game in the series since Modern Warfare. Read the article here.
