As many of you know, the newest Call of Duty: Black Ops was released this past Tuesday, November 9, 2010. Well, Activision was happy to announce that the popular franchise's latest installment has sold a staggering 5.6 million copies in the United States and the United Kingdom on the first day! The larger number is that the total revenue generated was $360 million. This was a solid increase over their last entry, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, which sold a respectable 4.7 million copies and a total revenue of $310 million on its first day.
I think it's safe to say, baring an unforeseen monumental collapse, the Call of Duty franchise is stronger than ever and FPS fans should expect quality shooters, both single player and multiplayer, for many years to come.
