Activision today announced that Black Ops 2 has gained $1 billion in just 15 days. This beats MW3’s record of $1B in 16 days.

“Entertainment franchises that captivate audiences for as long as Call of Duty has, on the scale that Call of Duty has, are very rare things. And it takes a lot of brilliant people working across many different disciplines to make it happen. It is incredibly humbling and gratifying to be a part of,” said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing. “In order for Call of Duty to remain the entertainment juggernaut that it is, and keep our fans coming back for more, we need to continue to bring fresh ideas and new innovations to the table every time, while always staying true to what people fell in love with in the first place. That’s what we did with Call of Duty: Black Ops II, and that’s what we intend to keep on doing. This is an incredible milestone for an incredible franchise, and I want to thank every passionate, talented, committed person on our team who made it happen.”

Activision confirmed that fans have logged 150 million hours on Xbox and PSN.

    There’s something fishy going on with this press release. BO2 is down in units compared to MW3. Maybe they’re counting the season pass as part of the numbers, since it’s specifically for BO2 content whereas with MW3 you paid for Elite which also included MW3 content.

      Of coarse they’re counting season pass

        Of course I am NOT going to buy season pass until the fix the fucking servers/lag on the PC… NEVER got a 4 bar NEVER!!! Always 3 bar with 2 secs delay…

      It’s down in total number of units sold since release, but Black Ops 2 sold more quickly and more frequently on launch day and first 15 days than modern warfare 3, hence breaking the 1 billion dollars
