If you're an FPS fan, you probably don't need me to remind you that Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 released today. The highly-anticipated sequel, which is being called "the most ambitious Call of Duty ever", has already shattered pre-order records set last year by Modern Warfare 3. Activision obviously hasn't yet revealed the numbers of Black Ops 2, but did say its on its way to a "historic launch" — one which has "humbled" the publishing giant.

"From the very beginning, our goal with Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 was to deliver a new high watermark for the franchise.  And thanks to the hard work and creative brilliance of our team at Treyarch, I think that's exactly what we've done," said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing.  

"In addition to an amazing and innovative game, we're also proud and humbled to see the launch of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 creating yet another legitimate, pop cultural phenomenon," Hirshberg added. "To our millions of fans worldwide, who have driven everything from pre-orders to YouTube views, to midnight lines outside of stores worldwide to new levels, we just want to say, thank you."

"You are the best fan base in the world, and the unprecedented thrill ride that is Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 is all for you," he concluded.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 scored an impressive 9/10 here on GameZone, with our review calling it a "top-notch sequel for a series that shows no signs of slowing."
