- Black Ops Map Packs sell 20 million units
- Revenue generated from Map Packs alone would make it 3rd largest console title of the year
- Call of Duty is "truly a year-round activity for millions"
Call of Duty: Black Ops had some pretty epic map packs. During a conference call yesterday, Activision announced that those map packs sold 20 million units to date - that's a whole lot of carnage unfolding on the moon!
For the first nine months of the year, Black Ops has remained the number one title in the U.S. and Europe, generating more revenue than any new major console release. The revenues generated from map packs alone would make it the third largest console title of the year."- Eric Hirshberg, Activision
Four map packs were released for the title, which ensured that players were interested all year round according to Hirshberg.
Further demonstrates that there is continued consumer interest in the content even 11 months after the launch, making playing Call of Duty truly a year-round activity for millions of our fans."
Back in September, Activision announced that Black Ops
had sold 18 million map packs, however that was before the final sales push for the Rezurrection
Map Pack was completed. What does all of this mean? We can expect extensive DLC for the newly released Modern Warfare 3
