Analysis: Predicting Success of Black Ops Launch

November 9th doesn’t bring the release of the most anticipated game of the year—that honor arguably goes to Blizzard’s Starcraft II--but Activision’s Call of Duty: Black Ops will be the most popular game of 2010. In fact, the question on most people’s minds is not whether it will be a commercial success, but whether it can break the record sales of Modern Warfare 2.

The story is too old to be commented.

"5.5 million units on day one, 10 million units by the end of November."

Considering its a the most popular multiplatform franchise this generation...its possible.

They are aiming high, but people lost a lot of fair due to MW2, its possible Black ops could turn it around but if they don't the COD IP will surely suffer.

Let me guess they are predicting 6 million units sold day one and 20 GOTY awards by day 2 and a Hall of Fame induction by the end of November.

Call of Duty is the most popular multi-platform game that i can remember so yeh it's gonna do big numbers.

I just hope it's more balanced and solid than MW2.

If I can get it free, I'll play this game. If not, then i'm not worried. I got other games that are 10x more intriguing.

Convas2586d ago

I'm getting my copy free, so Activision will not see a penny of my money.
