Call of Duty: Black Ops II brings in $1 billion in first 15 days

Activision launched Call of Duty Black Ops II less than a month ago, but it's looking like the latest game in the first person shooter series is going to continue to be a cash cow for the publisher and the game's developer Treyarch. Today, Activision announced that Black Ops II has brought in $1 billion worldwide in just its first 15 days. Previously, Activision said that it grossed $500 million in just its first 24 hours.

Activision has yet to break down how many copies of the game have actually been sold. It's currently available for the PC, Xbox 360, PS3 and most recently the Wii U. However, it looks like the franchise continues to be massively popular, even after releasing a new game every year for the past several years.

Activision has yet to reveal its plans for downloadable content for Black Ops II, although we can certainly expect to see a number of DLC packs that will add new levels and more features. Activision will likely reveal details about the next full game in the series sometime in the spring of 2013 and the Internet rumor mill claims it will indeed be the fourth entry in the Modern Warfare subset of the series.

Milk till it's dry. Some cows do come with huge capacity.

They may be milking it, but obviously people still like the cow enough to drink it's milk.

I am afraid your so called Fruit Playbook aka. Blackberry Playbook was never a cash cow.

Don't really see the point of something like this being news. As it's no surprise to anyone at this point that the millions of ignorant sheep will continue to buy the same game over and over.

Eh, WoW is worse. CoD is $60 for the new version each year.

That pales in comparison to WoW which on subscription alone for a year, would run you $180 (or $155.88 if you go with the 6-month billing). That's not even including the game or expansion costs... Yikes.

Reason I bring this up is because it actually IS the same game.
