Black Ops II grosses $1B faster than Modern Warfare 3

Activision today revealed that Call of Duty certainly isn't declining right now, as Call of Duty: Black Ops II managed to reach $1 billion in sales faster than Modern Warfare 3.
Although there are murmurs that sales for the Call of Duty franchise may be declining, Activision today revealed that this certainly isn't the case right now, as Call of Duty: Black Ops II managed to reach $1 billion in sales faster than Modern Warfare 3. According to data from Chart-Track, Black Ops II made $1 billion in sales worldwide in just 15 days, compared to the 16 days it took Modern Warfare 3. In comparison, 'Avatar' holds the box office record for feature films, reaching $1 billion in 17 days. Previously, the game raked in $500 million in day-one sales worldwide, compared to the $400 taken by Modern Warfare 3 in the U.S. and UK. Analysts have suggested that overall, the title will see sales 10 to 15 percent lower than its predecessor. If this turns out to be correct, it would make Black Ops II the second in a row to show decline: Modern Warfare 3 sold an estimated 5 percent fewer copies than 2010's Black Ops.
