Black Ops 2 Grosses $1 Billion Worldwide in 15 Days

Activision has announced that Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 has grossed $1 billion in just 15 days, sticking it to analysts who believe that the series is starting to falter.

The publisher announced that Black Ops 2 had reached this figure in just 15 days, one day quicker than Modern Warfare 3 which took 16 days to hit the milestone last year. This figure is based on internal sell-through estimates, official Chart-Track information, and retail data.

This information flies in the faces of several analysts who believe that the series is beginning to plateau following a drop in day one sales for the title compared to previous entries. Activision stated that this new milestone shows “the strong appeal of interactive entertainment to audiences worldwide.”

Does the series still have the legs? Or is interest slowly fading? Share your thoughts below.
