Black Ops II Preorder Numbers Puts MW3 To Shame, Shatter GameStop’s Records

Call of Duty: Black Ops

Every year, just before a Call of Duty game is released, naysayers start pitching their tents in the ‘negative field’. Building houses of straws with their pessimistic outlook of the game, predicting that it wouldn’t sell as much as its predecessor because, apparently, the franchise is on decline. But year-after-year the naysayers are left flushed, as year-after-year Call of Duty continues to shatter its own records.

According to GameStop, the world’s biggest games retailer, Call of Duty: Black Ops II has shattered records the company formerly held, becoming the most preordered game in the firm’s history, according to president Tony Bartel.

“Consumer anticipation for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 is tremendous. We are seeing the highest pre-orders in history,” he said.

“With its current pace, this Call of Duty is on track to break records and is likely to be our biggest game launch of all time.”

Since Modern Warfare 2, each Call of Duty has broken records set by the game before it, so although this is not surprising, it’s good to see the tradition continue. A win for the industry is a win for gamers.
