Activision Blizzard's latest title from its blockbuster "Call of Duty" video game franchise surpassed $1 billion in retail sales a day after its launch, the company said on Wednesday. In cities like London and San Francisco, excited "Call of Duty" fans queued up at retail stores at midnight launch events. In September, Activision's smaller rival Take-Two Interactive Software said its popular action-adventure game "Grand Theft Auto V" crossed the $1 billion sales mark after three days in stores. Activision, which is also known for its "Skylanders" games, has been delivering a "Call of Duty" title every year over the last decade.
