“Players in Battlefield 4 and Battlefield Hardline logged more than 170 million online gameplay hours combined in Q1.”
That’s according to a press release from EA’s latest earnings report, which covers sales figures and statistics from the beginning of April 2015 up until the end of June 2015. Expansion packs for both games are still in the pipeline, the company added during its earnings call earlier today, which presumably includes more map packs for Battlefield Hardline, as well as new content from the Community Map Project and Classic Map Project for Battlefield 4.
During the call, the company also re-stated their intent to bring shooter fans a “new Battlefield experience” in Q3 of fiscal year 2017, which translates to some time between October and December of calendar year 2016. Earlier, EA CFO Blake Jorgensen said the title would be a “return to a Battlefield military-style game,” in contrast to Visceral Games’ cops and criminals-themed spin-off. He added that there’ll be “more to come on that.”
