Call of Duty: Black Ops on Pace to Top Modern Warfare 2

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 set the pre-order bar, selling nearly 3 million copies before it was released in November 2009 -- in North America alone. The title then went on to become one of the most popular games of all time, selling over 20 million copies worldwide. Now, according to data from retailer GameStop, Call of Duty: Black Ops could be poised to top its predecessor.

In an interview with Gamasutra, GameStop merchandising head honcho Bob McKenzie reports that pre-orders for CoD: Black Ops are outpacing its record-setting predecessor.



"GameStop is tracking to all-time, record reservations on Call of Duty: Black Ops," McKenzie told Gamasutra, without revealing specific numbers. "We are ahead of where we were with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 last year, which previously set the industry standard."

VG Chartz, which tracks retail pre-orders in the Americas, currently has Black Ops at 1.5 million copies sold, and we've still got a month to go before the game is released.

  1. i really don't like gamestop... the people there act like nerd divas, far too important to deal with the likes of mere mortals...

  3. we'll see when it comes out, but MW2 set a big challenge up for it. i'm not sure black ops can top it, especially since it's made by treyarch :P
