MW3 pre-orders “significantly” ahead of Black Ops

What was said by a UK retailer some weeks ago has now been said by Activision to be true worldwide; pre-orders for Modern Warfare 3 are tracking “significantly” ahead of last year’s Black Ops.

Acti CEO Bobby Kotick relinquished the info in the company’s Q2 2011 results report: “To date, pre-orders for Modern Warfare 3 have significantly exceeded the pre-orders for Black Ops at this time last year.”

A Black Ops vs predecessor Modern Warfare 2 sales update is also provided: it’s 25 and 22 million units, respectively.
