Call of Duty: Black Ops may be Treyarch’s most popular Call of Duty title. Already we are seeing stats that pre-orders were through the roof and people are definitely playing it on Xbox Live.
Call of Duty: Black Ops hit 1 million players on Xbox Live on November 9th. We’ll see sales numbers at the end of the month, but analysts like Pachter are claiming that Call of Duty: Black Ops may be the best selling game of 2010.
“Black Ops should be the best-selling game of 2010. Throughout the year, gamers have tended to forgo spending on marginally-rated games, preferring instead to play free multiplayer for top-rated games (85% or better) such as Modern Warfare 2. We expect Black Ops’ record-breaking pre-sales, strong early reviews, and immense marketing campaign to translate into solid and sustainable sales, unlike competitor Medal of Honor, which had sales that dropped off quickly due to lackluster reviews.”
Congrats to Treyarch!
