Black Ops 2 Records Fourth Biggest U.K. Launch of All Time

Posted on November 19, 2012 AT 02:33am

Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 has managed to record the fourth biggest U.K. launch of all time to debut at the number one spot in the all formats chart narrowly losing out to its predecessors.

The game is the biggest U.K. launch of 2012 and was only beaten to the best of all time by 2011′s Modern Warfare 3, 2010′s Call of Duty: Black Ops, and 2009′s Modern Warfare 2. The Xbox 360 version of Black Ops 2 accounted for 60 percent of sales, the PlayStation 3 version for 38 percent, and the PC picked up the rest.

Halo 4 was pushed down to the number two slot in the charts closely followed by FIFA 13 and Assassin’s Creed III. You can check out the full chart below:
