A statement by Amazon noted that pre-order sales of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 were more than three times the orders received for 2010's Call of Duty: Black Ops in the first 24 hours.

While the online retailer wouldn't reveal the exact pre-order figures, it did clarify that Black Ops II had a 209 percent increase in pre-orders on its first day of sales compared to Black Ops in 2010.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 will launch on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC and is the first game in the series to be set in the future - a concept that allows gamers to fight enemies who are not human as they battle computer-operated drones fitted with advanced weaponry.
