Activision is another gaming company that is presently celebrating a new milestone, the company’s franchise Call Of Duty has delivered the biggest entertainment launch of the year.
The long anticipated Call of Duty: Black Ops II has achieved an estimated sell-through of more than $500 million worldwide in the first 24 hours of its release, which is way more than what Halo 4 did for Microsoft a few days back.
The game was released on Microsoft’s Xbox 360 console, on Sony’s PlayStation 3 and Windows PC on November 13, and millions of fans attended more than 16,000 midnight openings at retail stores worldwide.
Black Ops II drove social conversation in its first 24 hours as it was a top trending topic globally on Twitter in 23 cities worldwide. Additionally, there have been more than 30 million YouTube video views of the game’s live-action ‘Surprise’ launch trailer since its release on October 29, 2012.
The title is also expected to be released in North America for the new Wii U game system from Nintendo on November 18, 2012.
