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.
