UK Retailers: Call of Duty Ghosts Sales 50% Below Black Ops II - NewsWilliam D'Angelo, posted on 11 November 2013 / 12,831 Views
Call of Duty: Ghosts launched last week and sales for the UK are in. Retailers have told MCVUK that launch sales for Call of Duty: Ghosts are 50 percent lower than Call of Duty: Black Ops II.
Call of Duty: Black Ops II sold 1.65 million units in its first week in the UK, according to VGChartz. With sales about half of that would put Call of Duty: Ghosts opening week at 0.83 million units.
While these sales figures may seem dire for the Call of Duty series, these numbers don't include the next generation versions of the game. At least in the US, pre-orders for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of the game are at half of the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions. If it is the same in the UK, Call of Duty: Ghosts will end up selling about 75 percent of what Call of Duty: Black Ops II has sold.
