Black Ops 2 Goes Pre-Order Crazy, Triples Original Game’s Amazon Day One Numbers

May 3, 2012Written by Alex Osborn

The original Black Ops was a huge seller for Activision when it launched back in 2010, and believe it or not, it looks like the recently unveiled sequel is well on its way to outdo its predecessor.

After the game’s official unveiling on Tuesday, Amazon announced that Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 has managed to not only surpass, but triple the day one pre-orders numbers of the original. If this is any indication whatsoever, it looks like the Call of Duty franchise isn’t losing steam any time soon.

Graham Chambers, Amazon UK’s video games manager had to following to say about the exciting news:

Set to be one of the biggest games of the year, it’s great to see so much enthusiasm and anticipation for Call of Duty: Black Ops II.

Bolder and better than before and with everything from a futuristic storyline through to single player mode, Zombies and multiplayer, Black Ops II promises something Call of Duty fans have never seen before.

Black Ops 2 is being developed by Treyarch and will arrive in stores on November 13th.
