Battlefield 1 Had 19 Million Players by March End, FIFA 17 Had 21 Million
EA’s key franchises are performing well.
Electronic Arts offered its financial report for the fiscal year ending March 31st 2017 and had some rather strong figures. DICE’s Battlefield 1 was the obvious standout with 19 million players reported for the game thus far (which indicates the number of players registered).
EA noted that this was a 50 percent increase over Battlefield 4 within the same time. That’s not all though – FIFA 17 also had more than 21 million players with 12 million experiencing “The Journey” campaign mode. A 13 percent year over year increase in players was also seen for FIFA Ultimate Team through the Q4 2017 end.
Finally, it noted that EA Sports UFC 3 would be out in early 2018. Like its predecessor, it will be coming to the PS4 and Xbox One. A PC version wasn’t listed on the company’s release slate slide.
Battlefield 1 has a ways to go with its next DLC – In The Name of the Tsar – releasing in June. Stay tuned for more updates in the meantime.
