Down Drastically Compared to 2015 Battlefront Game
It’s been a rough ride for EA’s Star Wars Battlefront II. Earlier this year it seemed like EA had everything going for them but just before Battlefront II launched back in November, things took a turn for the worse. Unsurprisingly, after an underwhelming launch and a fair share of criticism surrounding the pay-to-play model, reports have surfaced that sales figures would be disappointing. Well, today we learned the action shooter from publisher Electronic Arts and developer EA Dice sold 1,326,906 units first week at retail.
Breaking down the sales by platform, the game sold best on the PlayStation 4 with 869,493 units sold (66%), compared to 438,708 units sold on the Xbox One (33%) and 18,705 units on Windows PC (1%).
Breaking down the sales by region, the game sold best in the US with 558,444 units sold (42%), compared to 503,927 units sold in Europe (38%) and 36,625 units sold in Japan (3%). Looking more closely at Europe, the game sold an estimated 128,846 units in the UK, 77,821 units in Germany, and 74,256 units in France.
Compared to 2015’s Star Wars Battlefront game sales are way down. 2015’s Star Wars Battlefront sold 3,675,687 units in its first week. Sales have dropped by nearly two-thirds.
Star Wars Battlefront II released for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC worldwide on November 17, 2017.
