It seems that all of that pent up demand for Call of Duty: Black Ops II on Xbox backward compatibility paid off for Activision. For the month of April, the same month that it was added to the backward compatible list, Call of Duty: Black Ops II amazingly managed to come in as the tenth best selling game in North America, according to the latest numbers from NPD Group. Not too shabby for a game that came out five years ago.
Black Ops II finally hit the backward compatible list on April 11 after months of massive demand seen across social media. And while it's generally safe to assume games hitting the list see a decent bump in sales after they're released, Black Ops II even managed to best last year's Call of Duty release, Infinite Warfare, which came in at number eleven.
Here's a look at the full top ten, in order:
- Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
- Persona 5
- The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
- MLB 17: The Show
- Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Wildlands
- Grand Theft Auto V
- Mass Effect: Andromeda
- NBA 2K17
- Call of Duty: Black Ops II
It'll definitely be interesting to see what the game takes Black Ops II's spot as the most requested backward compatible title, and whether it sees a similar boost once hitting the program.
