The total makes it the fastest-selling game to date, beating last week’s release of rival shoot-em-up title ‘Halo 4’.

‘Black Ops II’ is available on Sony PlayStation3 and Microsoft’s Xbox 360.

It has been extensively promoted with a 60-second ad featuring Hollywood stars Robert Downey Jr, Jack Black and Zach Galafianakis. The ad was created by US agency 72andSunny.

In March Activision reappointed WPP's MEC as its media agency in all markets outside North America, including the UK, while Omnicom's OMD retained the business in North America.
