Despite the fact that the Call of Duty franchise sees annual installments that arguably don't mix up the formula enough, Black Ops 2 is on track to continue the series' record-breaking tradition.
According to GameStop president Tony Bartel, “Consumer anticipation for Call of Duty: Black Ops II is tremendous. We are seeing the highest pre-orders in history. With its current pace, this Call of Duty is on track to break records and is likely to be our biggest game launch of all time.”
Say what you want about Activision, but can you really blame them for pushing out a new game every fall? The consumers have spoken, and what they want more than anything else is more Call of Duty.
