Call of Duty Black Ops 3 Beats Advanced Warfare in Pre Order Numbers

Call of Duty Black Ops 3 has significantly higher pre orders compared to Advanced Warfare, Activision Blizzard revealed.

Call of Duty Black Ops 3 has higher preorder numbers than last year’s Advanced Warfare, I can’t say I’m surprised to hear this as Black Ops is probably the most popular COD series.

Activision revealed the news in their financial details during an earnings call recently. According to the company, the numbers are significantly higher year-over-year:

We have strong momentum indicated by a number of factors, but just to name a few: the growing engagement around the past Black Ops titles; the significant year-on-year lift in pre-orders; consumer sentiment around our marketing assets which is more positive for Black Ops III than any Call of Duty title on record; a great partnership with Sony across consumer, trade and custom PS4 bundles; and our ranking as Neilson’s Number One Most Anticipated Title of the Year.

Black Ops 3 was pretty much a success from the moment it got announced. Fans are in love with the series and that love is expected to translate into massive sales.

Black Ops 3 is less than 24 hours away from release in North America and Europe. However, if you’re from the Middle East, you probably know that the game is available in your region since last week, so enjoy your unofficial early access to the full game.
