Activision issued their financial earnings report earlier than usual today because of the King aquisition announcement. In the earnings report, Activision has revealed the the monthly active users for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 has risen to nearly 12 million. 

Momentum ahead of launch has been strong and engagement for Call of Duty: Black Ops II grew quarter-over-quarter again to nearly 12 million MAUs, an unprecedented level for a game that is three years old and only available on old-generation consoles.

This is above August’s report of Black Ops 2 having 11 million monthly active users.

    Still not the best CoD

    • SPAWNST4R

      not even close. Its just the least hacked and its not AW.
      Its “balanced” for randomness and its noob friendly,

      • Aymen Skiken

        imo , it is.

      • w

        “and its not AW”

        lmao typical AW fanboy. Probably has bad stats and thinks playing against other baddies makes him good.

        • MehDuck

          I think he means that it’s good for not being AW.

          • SPAWNST4R

            yep that’s exactly what i meant, Way to make yourself “that typical CoD fan” tho, 1v1 me bro.. U MAD ?

        • GinsuVictim

          Danger! An idiot is in our midst!

        • Xboxisdead

          Haha haha haha this is the type of kid who gets all booty hole hurt if u tell him to lower his mic then u will get 1v1 me bro bahahahahahaha

    • The Flash

      its the last good COD for many people that isnt hacked

      • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox

        Exactly^

    • ScOott

      It is for me, great maps, great guns, pick ten system, diamond camo, perfect ttk, good score streaks.. What more could u ask for from multiplayer..

      • League Play is what makes this the best cod to date. Even though league Play had huuuuge room for improvements. LP combined with what you mentioned.

      • jordanxbrookes

        Black Ops is my favourite. Ah, those were the days.

        • ScOott

          Yh it’s close for me, bo1 best over all game, I think I played half the year playing zombies and the Half multiplayer, I always choose bo2 as my best tho, just for the fact it was really fun getting diamond camo and the pick 10 .. I reckon take them away bo1 would still be my favourite CoD

    • QuickzZ-_-GhosT

      It s atleast in 3rd place.

  • SPAWNST4R

    Yeah coz EVERYONE trusts Activisions published stats….

    • Keshav Bhat

      Well…Activision publishes the game and they are the only ones with official stats of servers being active.

      • SPAWNST4R

        they have a track record of mis-information, marketing bloat and just plain lies when it comes to exactly these things.

        • Kobrah

          Like when sledgehammer said 5 billion instead of 500 000 000 in one of their info-graphics

          • ScOott

            Just a glitch, SH can’t even get a virtual poster with stats on without adding a glitch ?..

          • FazalGaming

            I bet michael condrey goes to take a dump, looks down and see that he shat a bunch of glitches

        • Keshav Bhat

          Well, it’s no doubt that Black Ops 2 is very popular right now. But if you don’t want to trust them, that’s fine.

  • Shantzonpoint

    Its going to go from 12 million to 50k by Monday. …

    • FazalGaming

      maybe more. since AW & Ghosts have 50K combined, bo3 may have like 100K

      • The Flash

        BO2 had 200,000 on release, i expect BO3 to be on point with that if not more

  • The Flash

    now how about you bring it over to next gen aswell? along with BO1

    • Minime Hamilton

      No, It is only an bonus for last gen as it cant handle the campaign

      • The Flash

        I’m not talking about that, i’d still to play them on my Xbone, then i can get rid of my 360. Speaking of last gen from what i’ve seen it hardly runs MP and Zombies either, graphics look so bad.

  • ScOott

    I like how they still posting bo2 stats and not mentioned ghosts or A.W ? Treyarch for the win..

    • GinsuVictim

      Because we’re heading into BO3.

      • ScOott

        They won’t do the same when a.w 2 comes round, it’s not because of bo3 its simply to do with how successful bo2 is/was

        • GinsuVictim

          BO2 already had a strong community during Ghosts and AW, but when all the BO3 news started, the player count went way up. BO3 definitely has a hand in it.

          • ArtisanKnight

            Also because people can’t stand ghosts and Aw.

          • GinsuVictim

            Love Ghosts, not big on AW (still a decent game)

          • ArtisanKnight

            That a different opinion.

          • GinsuVictim

            That’s the amazing thing about opinions.

          • ArtisanKnight

            You got atleast that right.

          • GinsuVictim

            I got the fact that I love Ghosts right as well. I never said you should love it.

          • Sam

            doesn’t even matter lmfao. the least amount of people on BO2 everyday was minimum 50,000

        • XboxISdead

          How the hell can you say they won’t do the same when aw2 come around? What r u a mind reader? Smacked a$$

  • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox
    • ScOott

      Or Kill Denied on his man period..

    • PuddingAuxRais1ns

      Lol everybody laughed their asses off at the part of the movie XD

  • Kobrah

    To put this in perspective this is exactly half of Australia’s population playing every month

    • シーザー クラウン

      and the entire population of Sweden and almost half the population of Denmark

  • Big

    I love how they want to fucking be congratulated but you guys are giving those 12 million users on LAST GEN a shit game because you can’t play bo2 no where but on last gen and pic

  • digitalorphysical

    I know this is off topic but I would like to know people’s opinion:

    Should I purchase Digital Deluxe edition of Black Ops 3? I have preordered mine at Game Stop for 5 €. The price difference is just 30 euros and I really don’t think I would sell my BO3 away. I still have my disc version of Black Ops 2. I just prefer physical 😀

    If I pre order now, I sure can preload it before Friday..

    What would you do?

    • Skillreks

      I would get the hard copy. I, myself, also love having the hard copy. it just makes it feel more like it’s yours, you know?

      • goose

        that’s a terrible and irrelevant idea. the upside to having a disc is being able to bring it to friends. thats it. if you get the digital version, you can get it gameshared and share the whole game and downloads with a friend. Thats what I did. Bought the digital deluxe, and my buddy game shared with me, and gave me half the money so we both pay $60 for deluxe and get everything. keep in mind if you do this route, you’re both essential paying 20 dollars LESS that a physical hard copy AND getting a season pass.

        • digitalorphysical

          Thank you for your opinions. I did what goose said. Not gonna game share it or anything but if I end up loving Black Ops 3 the same way I did with Black Ops 2 I just saved 20 €. (physical + season pass = 120 €)

          If I ever regret my choice, I can always buy physical copy.

          • goose

            well it saves you money if you find someone to gameshare with you and pay you half of the 120. they essentially get the exact same thing as you, and you both leave with the deluxe only paying 60 each.

        • The Flash

          yeah me and my bro are both paying £40 each towards Xbone Digital deluxe, and we’re essentially paying for 2 standard physical copies except we’re getting the giant, nuketown, SP, camos and shit, and its a digital copy so it cant be damaged, we can pre-load it and play it without leaving the house, and well, we can both play it. Sweet deal.

    • BigMacMan

      in the same boat as you but in the end, I chose the physical copy. nothing beats the smell of a brand new game, esp if it’s blops 3

    • Minime Hamilton

      Hey man, do what you want, but this year i’m getting it digitally as soon i’ll have 2 PS4’s

  • SweeperX

    “but half of those are hackers”

    • GinsuVictim

      Where are you running into hackers? I’ve barely ever seen one in BO2.

      • Josh

        i run into a hacker like once every month if i’m lucky lmao

    • FazalGaming

      almost every BO2 lobby is a hacked loby for me

      • The Flash

        on what console? i havent seen any

  • Stefan Lang

    Which is more reason why this game should make it to next gen.

  • Guywithbrains

    Seens like a lot of people prefer emptying whole magazine to one enemy. Well each to their own.

    My opinion stays the same as before. I already think Black Ops 3 is clearly better compared to Black Ops 2 simply because they seem to have removed a lot of things I didn’t like in Black Ops 2 such as too slow time to kill.

    • spartanelite

      Slow time to kill is good

      • FazalGaming

        say that to Destiny

        • spartanelite

          I do,I like that about it

      • jordanxbrookes

        Not really. There needs to be a middle ground and it feels like Treyarch have done that with Black Ops 3.

        • Guywithbrains

          Modern Warfare series did it perfectly in my opinion. Not too fast and not too slow.

        • spartanelite

          Slower is better IMO that being said you can only kill so slow in Cod game as well

    • tuby

      Ttk is slow but I never have to u se a entire magazin to kill somebody in bo 2. Improve your AIM. And we already know you struggle on bo 2 or every cod

    • Sam

      sounds like you fucking blow at CoD if you think emptying a whole mag is what it takes to kill someone on BO2 lmfao

    • Sanchez

      When people say slow time to kill, i’m under the impression they confuse it with latency?? On BO1 on an almost perfect connection it’s quick as hell to kill, on a 3 bar slower and so on. On MW3 however every gun felt like a one shot kill for me with good internet, or a cheap death with bad internet…….

  • A question to those who got the game early – are there Dedicated Servers in BO3?

    • Shadow the Hedgehog

      There are– in consoles there’s less– but there’s even less P2P in consoles– I think it was now only on private matches? But PC has got ALL the dedicated servers– Though it’s unknown if Private matches will remain P2P.

    • jordanxbrookes

      It’s pretty much the same Hybrid System that Activision has been using since Ghosts, at least on current-gen console it is.

  • grimm joww

    well this game will hold up till 2018, 2016 ghost 2 i hope not, hopefully its MW4, 2017 its AW2 not so great

  • Aidan

    Black ops 3 is 2 days away…

  • J4MES

    It’s quite incredible the population that still thrives on Black Ops 2. Just shows how abysmal the likes of Ghosts and AW have been in the wider community. I know plenty of people who upgraded to the next gen (current) and then went back to the 360/PS3 just for BO2.

  • what

    Ghosts was a garbage game and made me not buy AW.

  • Minime Hamilton

    CAN NOT WAIT FOR BO3! I HAVE IT PRE-DOWNLOADING!

    • The Flash

      me too
