Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 is officially GameStops’s most pre-ordered title to date. The retailer has also predicted that the game is likely to be its ‘biggest game launch of all time’.

IGN reports that the statement includes comment from GameStop president Tony Bartel, in which he said, “consumer anticipation for Call of Duty: Black Ops II is tremendous. We are seeing the highest pre-orders in history. With its current pace, this Call of Duty is on track to break records and is likely to be our biggest game launch of all time.”

That suggests big numbers indeed. Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 also received a launch trailer last night. If you missed it, hit the link below. Oh and crank up your speakers for a loud dose of AC/DC.
