Over 1 million Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 units sold during GameStop midnight launch

It looks like Call of Duty fans eager to get their hands on Black Ops 2 just couldn't wait until morning to pick up their copy of "the most ambitious Call of Duty ever."

Although we still don't have the official sales numbers, GameStop president Tony Bartel revealed that the retailer sold more than 1 million units worldwide during the midnight launch period.

"Black Ops 2 is shaping up to be our biggest game launch of all time," Bartel followed up. This shouldn't come as too much of a surprise given that Black Ops 2 saw the highest pre-orders in GameStop history.

We're probably still a few days from Activision releasing sales numbers, but earlier this week the company said it was well on its way to a "historic launch."
