Battlefield 1 Forecast to Sell “About” 15 Million Units, Titanfall 2 “Closer to” 9-10 Million
Within a year’s period of course.
Electronic Arts had revealed its Q1 FY2017 earnings report and in a post-earnings call, it noted expected sales figures for upcoming titles like Battlefield 1 and Titanfall 2.
CFO Blake Jorgensen stated that, “We’ve told people that typically a Battlefield title does about 15 million in a year. Our guidance is slightly under that. And we hope that that excitement builds and it will clearly go through that number. But for right now, it’s slightly under that number.”
Titanfall managed to sell just a bit over seven million units but Titanfall 2 is likely to do better. “We think it’ll do more than that, but it’s probably closer to 10 million than it is to 15 million as built into our guidance. So closer to 9 million to 10 million on Titanfall and just under 15 million on Battlefield 1.”
Both games are out in October for PS4, Xbox One and PC. Battlefield 1 lands on October 21st while Titanfall 2 arrives on October 28th.
