Battlefield 3 Sells Well After Launch, Hits 8 Million
Analysts predicted Battlefield 3 could sell an impressive 12 million units in its lifetime.
Well, that's certainly possible. After becoming the single biggest day-one shipment in EA's history (10 million units shipped on launch day), DICE's shooter has continued to sell well at retailers worldwide.
During an investor presentation, EA CFO Eric Brown gave us a little sales update: Battlefield 3 has now shipped 12 million copies and sold 8 million. Sure, this is behind Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 (6.5 million sold on launch day), but EA is getting what they wanted: a critically acclaimed, popular title.
And by the way, fan backlash - including a lawsuit - has resulted in EA making good on their promise to PlayStation 3 owners. Therefore, if you bought BF3 on PS3, you will eventually have free access to Battlefield 1943.
