Call of Duty: Black Ops sells 5.6M copies in first-day

Activision has announced that Call of Duty: Black Ops sold a record 5.6M copies in North America and the United Kingdom in its first day of release, generating an entertainment industry record $360M of revenue. The previous high came with 2008’s launch of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 which sold 4.7M copies and $310M of revenue:

“There has never been another entertainment franchise that has set opening day records for two consecutive years and we are on track to outperform last year’s five-day global sales record of $550 million,” said Bobby Kotick, CEO, Activision Blizzard, Inc.

“The game’s success underscores the pop culture appeal of the brand. Call of Duty: Black Ops is the finest game that Treyarch has ever made and raises the bar for online gameplay by delivering the deepest and most intense Call of Duty experience yet.”

Call of Duty: Black Ops is available now on the following platforms: Microsoft Xbox 360; Sony Playstation 3; PC; Nintendo Wii and Nintendo DS.
