And the seemingly unstoppable trend continues: according to mega-retailer GameStop, Call of Duty: Ghosts, the latest game from the juggernaut COD franchise, is actually on track to be the most preordered title of 2013, beating even Grand Theft Auto V.But don’t let that fool you, as most of Grand Theft Auto V’s preorders, it seems, were placed in 2012 as compared to this year. If you remember, the game has been delayed a number of times.
Here’s GameStop VP of merchandising Bob Puzon:
Call of Duty is an entertainment juggernaut and cultural phenomenon. We are excited for the upcoming release of the new instalment of this blockbuster franchise. We look forward to celebrating the worldwide November launch of this great game that is on track to be the most pre-ordered title of the year.
