Activision has announced that, for the fourth year running, the Call of Duty franchise has become the largest entertainment release of the year. In just 24 hours, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 pulled in over $500 million in global sales in just the first 24 hours of availability.
To anyone who has been following Call of Duty over the past few years, it's not a matter of if the franchise will shatter records and exceed sales expectations, but when they will do it.
Quote from Bobby Kotick, CEO, Activision Blizzard
"With first day sales of over half a billion dollars worldwide, we believe Call of Duty is the biggest entertainment launch of the year for the fourth year in a row. 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."
