ERA’s 2011 UK Entertainment reports shows that between its release on November 8 through the end of 2011, Modern Warfare 3 moved 2,814,609 units in the region, a number which falls 451,789 copies short of its predecessor, Black Ops for the same period in 2010, when it moved 3,266,298 copies. The Call of Duty series wasn't the only franchise to note a slump compared to a previous release, as EA’s FIFA 12 sold 196,929 copies less than FIFA 11, which moved 2,193,302 units for the same period in 2010. The numbers reflect the downward trend of UK game sales, which were down 13% in 2011 year-over-year. Thanks MCV.
