Black Ops Grosses $650M In Five days.

18 Nov

Activision claimed this morning that Call of Duty: Black Ops took in $650 million in five days, surpassing the company’s previous record-setting, $550 million launch week with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. According to CEO Bobby Kotick, “Call of Duty has become the first entertainment property in history to set five-day launch records for two consecutive years across all forms of entertainment.” Beyond the fiscal fidelity provided to Activision, Call of Duty has helped Microsoft to trumpet new records for Xbox Live. The service reportedly broke a record of 2.6 million unique players in-game on the November 9 launch day, with 5.9 million multiplayer hours logged that same day.
