Activision UK senior brand manager Kevin Flynn has told MCV that the development team is confident that it will reclaim the sales record back from Grand Theft Auto V with the Call of Duty franchise. Grand Theft Auto V smashed Call of Duty’s record for the biggest video game launch ever when it released last month. Activision revealed that last year’s Black Ops II has now surpassed 3m units sold in the UK.

“Congratulations to the team at Rockstar for their success. We look forward to getting the record back before the next GTA title. We know that our unaided awareness for Ghosts is leading the way against other unreleased triple-A titles. Our digital content has proven extremely popular and Black Ops II has sold more than 3m units in the UK.”

  1. They’ll probably do it too. “How to make a successful video game: Make it a pop culture phenomenon”

  2. I wish I had Vine for this. It would just be this text for 2 seconds, then me reading it for 2 seconds and then just me laughing till end of the video.
    In fact, some internet person, Please go make this happen.

      1. On a slow day, we get the leftover news that not even the trolls are interested in.

      2. heyy guys? wana eat some britsh with me?! :D its very yummy just call kfc & ask them for code of 34m4 they well ship you dead britsh :)

    1. Well, then releasing it on Wii U gave them the record 3 copies earlier than they would get without a Wii U version. I don’t ike Cod that much, so not picking it up. Buying ACIV and Watch_Dogs, though. And already bought ZombiU, Spliner Cell and AC3

      1. Watchdogs don’t come out till june 30th now though. And they had the nerve to say spring. That was summer last time I checked.

            1. You have a source? I know stores have a much later release for not having to delay the game for you when the actual release date is anounced, but I think Ubisoft said Q1:14

  3. They’re never get the hype up for CoD if they’re continuing releasing it every year. This is just the beginning of GTA V. When it drops on the PC and new gen it’ll probably double this figures.

  4. That record breaking aint gonna happen. No game is going to be better than gta v for the next few years.

    1. Nintendo greedy Mofos that only build consoles for Hobos ALL NINTENDOFANBOYS GOT OWNED LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL IF YOU READ THIS YOUR NINTENDOFAGGOT JAJAJAJA

  5. lol

    I’m 100% sure Ghosts will sell a lot of copies, but breaking GTA V records? Good luck with that.

  6. Ummm..yeah, good luck Activision. I doubt GTAV’s record will be broken any time soon. It’ll be broken, just not right now. Probably in the next couple of years. Or maybe the next CoD game. I don’t think Ghosts can do it.
