Black Ops II Sales Break 8 Million In First Day, 1+ Million Behind Modern Warfare 3

Call of Duty: Black Ops II has sold millions of units. Are you surprised? Well, you might be.

Metro UK has reported that Call of Duty: Black Ops II managed to push 8 million units in its first 24 hours following launch. While already extremely lucrative, these numbers put it behind last year's Modern Warfare 3 which accrued 9.3 million in the same time frame. On the bright side, it's a step up from Modern Warfare 2 and the original Black Ops which sold 6 million and 7 million respectively.

Black Ops II still has a long road ahead as well as a release on Wii U this Sunday. However, it does feel a bit strange to see Call of Duty have a decline in launch sales, especially with a profound marketing campaign behind it. Trends made it look like this day would never come, but maybe the age of console hardware and Halo 4's prominence may have taken a toll on poor ol' Call of Duty.
