Black Ops Set to Destroy Medal of Honor

Looks as though the Call of Duty series isn’t ready to give up it’s thrown just yet. Medal of Honor released this month to controversy and EA looked to stick it’s foot back in the door of the FPS genre. Look again. According to it isn’t going to happen. Call of Duty: Black Ops is set to sell 12-14 million copies by the end of the year, compared to 3 million for Medal of Honor.

These are all projected numbers of course, but according to, Medal of Honor was set to sell much more. Pre-order numbers were much higher and the rumor is they were affected by the recent Taliban controversy and possibly fans being unhappy with the Beta. Whatever the reason, it looks as though EA has a lot of work to do if they want to kick Activision, Infinity Ward, and Treyarch off the top of the mountain.
