Black Ops 2 vs Halo 4: And The Winner Is…

By  | 

Microsoft has just launched Halo 4 and it has been very well received by fans of the game series, but another massive game, Black Ops 2 was launched yesterday, so how will the sales of this come out?

Black Ops 2 vs Halo 4

Of course everyone thought that Halo 4 was going to be a big deal, but what about record breaking? The Halo 4 game sees the return of Master Chief and there is no indication that the popular series will slow down. Microsoft has said that the game took in sales of $220 million within the first 24 hours of the game going on sale. It is thought that it will surpass $300 million in the first full week of the game landing on shelves of retailers.

$220 million is a record for sales of one day for the whole Halo franchise. What people are waiting to find out now is if the sales of Black Ops 2 on the first day can beat the sales of Halo 4. Black Ops 2 is thought to be just as popular as Halo 4 and it is thought that Activision will again make a fortune from the game.

Of course you do have to bear in mind that Halo 4 didn’t beat the previous 2 releases of the Call of Duty game sales and it’s not likely that it will happen this time around. The original Black Ops set the record as being the largest entertainment launch ever, when it took $360 million within the first 24 hours of it being made available to the public.

When Modern Warfare 3 was released, this broke all the records again, when it took in $400 million on the first day. This record is still standing, but can it be broken by Black Ops 2?

When Bungie left the Halo team everyone thought that the game would go into decline. So sales of $220 million on the first day of release have been something that Microsoft can be proud of. There are some that say that Halo 4 will outmatch the sales of Black Ops 2, however if you take the figure of $220 million, this is not likely to be the case.
