Call of Duty: Black Ops now UK's best selling game ever

Call of Duty has beaten out Call of Duty as Black Ops replaces Modern Warfare 2 as the UK's biggest ever selling game

Last year's Call of Duty release Call of Duty: Black Ops has officially become the UK's highest selling game ever, dethroning its predecessor in the process.

GfK ChartTrack has confirmed that the Treyarch shooter had amassed a massive 3,722,411 until sales in the UK by June 25th of this year, surpassing the total sales of the former leading release Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 by 20,000 sales less than eight months after launch.

This is yet another chart topped for the Black Ops release which sold 13.7 million units across the pond to become the US’ best ever selling game back in March with US and UK sales figures hinting at worldwide sales of well over 20 million units.
 

Call of Duty developer Activision claimed back in March that Black Ops had attracted 33 per cent more unique online gamers than Modern Warfare 2 with the release of the third Black Ops DLC, ‘Annihilation’, earlier this week meaning the latest CoD title still has room for growth yet.
 

"This is an outstanding achievement for the development team at Treyarch and the amazing Call of Duty community," declared Activision's UK Managing Director Andrew Brown.

Looking to topple Call of Duty: Black Ops from its lofty pedestal later this year will be Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. Set to hit stores on November 8th the next Call of Duty: Modern Warfare instalment will include levels set in New York City, London, Paris and Berlin.

 
Is Call of Duty: Black Ops worthy of being the UK's biggest game to date or are you still struggling to see what all the fuss is about? Let us know via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.
