FIFA 12 sells 5 million units

Posted By | On 29th, Oct. 2011

In its first month out in the market, FIFA 12 has sold 5 million units.  “FIFA 12 has been remarkable,” said Peter Moore. “Five million consumers purchased this latest iteration so far, the best reviewed sports game of this current console generation.”

“FIFA 12 is doing unprecedented levels of online engagement,” he continued. “Four weeks into the launch, we have hosted 271 million online games, an increase of 105 percent over last year. Fans are currently playing an average of 94 million minutes per day of FIFA 12 online.

“One month after FIFA 12 launched in stores, the game is still on the console tray and thus still generating incremental revenue. Players are rewriting our assumptions about their traditional decay curve. They’re playing longer, they’re more engaged and they are eager to spend in order to extend the experience.”

FIFA 12 seems to be doing very well on the market. After its first week on the market, it had managed to sell 3.2 million copies. Can we expect it to be another 15 million seller like FIFA 11? It sure looks like it. But only time will tell.

We reviewed FIFA 12 some time ago, and gave it a solid 9.5/10, calling it the best sports game ever. Read the review here.
