EA has released its financial results for Q3 FY12. The two standout franchises are Battlefield and FIFA.
EA’s CEO, John Riccitiello, stated, “we are pleased to report a strong holiday quarter driven by Battlefield 3, FIFA12 and a strong showing by our digital games and services.” In the 3rd quarter report for the fiscal year, “Battlefield 3 and FIFA 12 each sold through more than 10 million units. Madden NFL 12 has sold through almost 5 million units life-to-date.” Just to clarify, 10 million units sell through to customers, not units shipped to retailers, which would be higher than 10 million. Last sale figures were released back in November, and Battlefield 3 had a sell through of 8 million units.
Battlefield 3 deservedly won our first multiplayer experience of the year award, and we look forward to DICE’s future DLC plans. Speaking of DLC plans, EA has stated that they will be making an announcement during next week’s New York event. Read here for more.
