Activision today reported their Q2 financial results call and confirmed that Black Ops 2 is the #2 best selling game in NA and EU, falling behind Activision’s Skylanders franchise.
Activision confirmed that Black Ops 2 has outsold MW3 in both retail and digital sales. Activision is still worried about the new competitive titles coming this fall launching around the same time Activision games are launching. They are also fear risk about the next-generation consoles launch due to a divided sales.
Activision CEO also confirmed that Call of Duty DLC has had significant growth this year.
Our solid performance across our franchises and strong digital sales, including continued significant growth this quarter in our Call of Duty® downloadable content business over the previous year, validate our belief that we will enter this new period of independence in a position to leverage the flexibility and focus that it provides.”
Activision also confirmed that Ghosts preorders are lower than Black Ops 2 preorders due to console uncertainty. However, the preorders for Ghosts are higher than Black Ops 1 and titles before that.
