Activision has revealed its Q2 CY13 results, in which the company revealed that Call of Duty 2: Black Ops 2 was the second best selling title in both North America and Europe in 1H 2013. In addition, the publisher stated that Black Ops 2 has outsold Modern Warfare 3, both in physical and in digital channels.
Furthermore, Call of Duty’s digital revenues increased over 100% year-over-year in Q2 and in 1H 2013. Guess Treyarch’s title is going well after all, despite the critique from a lot of gamers about the game’s engine.
Quite surprisingly, Call of Duty: Ghosts pre-orders are not up to what the publisher was expecting – and lower from those of Black Ops 2. Still, Call of Duty: Ghosts’ pre-orders are double than the original Black Ops title.
In other news, Skylanders Giants was the company’s best selling title in both North America and Europe in 1H 2013.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
