EA Ups Battlefront Shipment Predictions To 13 Million

Did you enjoy the Star Wars: Battlefront beta?

Well, publisher Electronic Arts thought it went pretty well, which is why they're a little more optimistic about the game's performance now.

Company CFO Blake Jorgensen announced during a post-earnings call that, due in part to the positive reception of the aforementioned beta, EA expects to ship 13 million copies of Battlefront before the end of the current fiscal year (March 31, 2016).

That's well up from the previous forecast of 9-10 million shipped. Jorgensen added that EA expects an 80/20 split for shipments between the current fiscal quarter and the upcoming fourth quarter and overall, the company raised its full-year revenue expectations by $50 million. 9.5 million players checked out the Battlefront beta, which yielded some huge numbers. We also found that the PS4 version was in "healthier shape" when compared to its Xbox One counterpart.

Star Wars: Battlefront releases on November 17 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

Not really the type of game you buy for the single player tho. I'd much prefer them to make a better mp experience if it means having no single player. There are tons of games that are all mp focused and this is one of them.

Actually the Battlefront series always had single player and mulitplayer. That's why so many fans of the series are frustrated this is mp only. It was a cop out to only develop mp.

The singleplayer before though was basically the exact same thing as the mp just that you played against bots.
