Perhaps not a big surprise for many following the biggest entertainment launch of all time that was Modern Warfare 3, but GameStop's Company president Tony Bartel states:
“consumer anticipation for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 is tremendous” and the company is “seeing the highest pre-orders in history”
He goes on to state that with the current pace of pre-orders, Black Ops II is set to be GameStop's "biggest game launch of all time".
I know there were people saying that everything was going to get worse for the series last year after Modern Warfare 3's launch (which people say every year and I have a feeling Brad Shoemaker was one of them), but this obviously proves that wrong. I wonder what the proportion of Wii U pre-orders compared to the other two versions are.
I'm more excited for Black Ops II than I was MW3, so I'm looking forward to when it launches on November 13th.
