According to UK website MCV, Amazon has announced that one-day pre-orders for Call of Duty: Black Ops II were three times higher than opening day pre-order for the original Black Ops.

Amazon UK video games manager Graham Chambers told MCV, “Set to be one of the biggest games of the year, it’s great to see so much enthusiasm and anticipation for Call of Duty: Black Ops II.”
