Now I can sit here safely and say that we all know deep down that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is going to be a huge game and will sell games by the truckload but it seems that the signs are there already Modern Warfare 3 is smashing pre-order records in the UK. One of the specialist video game stores in the UK, GAME, has said today that the first FPS between Infinity Ward and Sledgehammer Games’ is breaking the company’s pre-order record – set by last year’s Call of Duty: Black Ops (naturally).
“Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 pre-orders are already tracking significantly ahead of Call of Duty: Black Ops at the same time last year,” managing director Tom Devine said. “We know that the Call of Duty brand and franchise has the most amazing fan-base and we’ve got some great surprises lined up for those who pre-order with us. We’re looking forward to an incredible launch on 8th November.”
So the big question is will Modern Warfare 3 outsell Black Ops? For me the answer is a definite yes. I also think that it will emulate Black Ops in getting more than $1 billion in sales between its November release and January of the following year which would give it the title of fastest-grossing video game of all time.
