According to VGC, sales of Black Ops 2 reached 11.22 million units in its first week, lower than its predecessor but still a spectacular showing.
Modern Warfare 3, released last year, sold 13.45 million copies in its first week.
The game also brought in $500 million in sales in its first 24 hours, a figure that eclipsed Halo 4's large $220 million start just a week earlier.
There had been worry from the industry that gamers would tire of the multi-billion dollar franchise.
