Call Of Duty: Black Ops Hits $1 Billion In Sales
Yes, another "Call of Duty: Black Ops sold lots of copies" story. Black Ops has now passed the $1 billion mark in worldwide sales, by Activision's estimate.
"In all of entertainment, only Call of Duty and Avatar have ever achieved the billion dollar revenue milestone this quickly," said Activision Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick. "This is a tribute to the global appeal of the Call of Duty franchise, the exceptional talent at Treyarch and the hundreds of extraordinary people across our many Call of Duty studios including Infinity Ward and Sledgehammer that work tirelessly on the franchise. Our ability to provide the most compelling, immersive entertainment experience, and enhance it with regular, recurring content that delivers hundreds of hours of audience value, has allowed Call of Duty to continue to set sales and usage records."
Alright, so we've covered the sales figure and the obligatory "eat it, motherfuckers" statement from Bobby. Now what? Gameplay stats. More than 600 million hours have been logged by Black Ops players since November 9th. Over half that gameplay time is spent online.
With multiplayer being such a huge draw of the series, it's no surprise they'd support that side of the game with DLC. Yesterday, Activision announced the first map pack for the game.
