 Modern Warfare 3  UK Pre-orders 'Significantly' Ahead Of  Black Ops

Modern Warfare 3 UK Pre-orders 'Significantly' Ahead Of Black Ops

July 18, 2011 | By Mike Rose

Pre-orders of highly anticipated shooter Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 are currently on track to better the previous record held by Black Ops in the UK, potentially making the upcoming title the most pre-ordered game ever.

Games retailer GameStop reported last month that it was receiving more pre-orders for Modern Warfare 3 than it did for its predecessor Black Ops.

Now UK retailer Game has told news site MCV that it has also found that pre-orders are "significantly" bigger for the upcoming title.

Game Group's Tom Devine said, "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."

"We know that the Call of Duty brand and franchise has the most amazing fan-base and weve got some great surprises lined up for those who pre-order with us. Were looking forward to an incredible launch on November 8."

Black Ops currently holds the record for the biggest selling retail video game of all time in the United Kingdom. However, analysts believe that Modern Warfare 3 could eventually take this title.
