EA has announced that sales of DICE’s Star Wars Battlefront have exceeded the company’s fiscal year estimate of 13 million units.
“Star Wars Battlefront surpassed EA’s fiscal year guidance of 13 million units sold-in,” the company said.
648 million minutes have been spent playing on the Planet Jakku with over 873 million vehicles destroyed, EA also confirmed.
The game was recently patched to introduce a number of much-needed balance tweaks.
“This holiday season we connected millions of players through amazing games across multiple platforms,” CEO Andrew Wilson said in a statement marking the release of the company’s latest financial results. “From the stunning visuals and gameplay of Star Wars Battlefront, to the anytime, anywhere competition in Madden NFL Mobile, players are deeply engaged across the increasing depth and breadth of the EA portfolio.”
Star Wars Battlefront’s DLC and season pass content was detailed earlier this week. Four content packs are included, and will take the game to the Outer Rim, Bespin, the Death Star, and an unannounced location. The first three packs will be released this year with the fourth launching in early 2017.
During its financial report, EA also announced that it expects BioWare’s Mass Effect Andromeda and Respawn Entertainment’s Titanfall 2 to launch at some point between October 2016 and March 2017. The company also gave us our best indication in recent times of Xbox One system sales, revealing that combined PlayStation 4 and Xbox One sales have reached 55 million. Given that Sony confirmed PS4 sales had almost reached 36 million earlier this month this suggests that around 19 million Xbox One consoles have been sold to date.
