Analyst: Battlefield 4 Will Rock The Sales Charts Despite Ghosts
Call of Duty: Ghosts will undoubtedly be the winner in the FPS category this year, as it is every year.
In terms of sales, nothing can touch it. That being said, EA's popular Battlefield franchise is gaining steam, and one analyst believes it could sell as many as 14 million copies when it launches later this year.
Sterne Agee analyst Arvind Bhatia said that despite the heavy competition from Ghosts, DICE's new Battlefield entry will still sell like hotcakes. In an investor's note, Bhatia said that BF4 and CoD can "successfully coexist" despite hitting store shelves within a week of each other. He also predicted far more PC sales for BF4; 1/3 as opposed to only 10% of the overall sales for Ghosts.
EA has already stated their confidence in the title, saying they know they've got the "best game." That might indeed be the case and if it is, we see no problem with that 14 million prediction.
