Star Wars Battlefront II Sales Unaffected by Scandal as It Reaches #1 in Australia Charts

Share this:

With Star Wars Battlefront II embroiled in one of the most controversial gaming issues of the past few years, some might be assuming that the game is DOA (dead on arrival) given the controversy has spread out to the point even non-gamers might have heard of it.

Well, it seems Star Wars Battlefront II is doing quite alright — at least in a few territories. Over in Australia, Battlefront II even managed to outsell this year’s Call of Duty (Call of Duty: WWII), to nab the top spot in its debut week.

Over on the Interactive Games and Entertainment Association (IGEA) charts, it lists Star Wars Battlefront II as the #1 game for the week of November 13-19, 2017, for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
