FIFA 19 Was a Huge Commercial Success in Europe
Soccer sim FIFA 19 was Europe’s best-selling game last year, according to sales data gathered from 15 European countries by an entertainment market research institute named GfK Entertainment.
The sales data came from these 15 countries: Belgium, Italy, the United Kingdom, Denmark, Switzerland, Norway, France, the Netherlands, Sweden, Poland, Spain, Finland, Portugal, Germany, and Austria.
FIFA 19 launched worldwide on September 28, 2018 and it managed to outsell 2018’s other heavy hitters that were released in Europe such as God of War, Marvel’s Spider-Man, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, and Red Dead Redemption 2.
Our review of the game wasn’t overwhelmingly positive but still praised it for “significant gameplay improvements”.
“Time will tell if FIFA 19’s new gameplay additions serve to lift the franchise above the arcade-sim hybrid that it’s turned into in recent years, but its stunning lack of game mode changes is disappointing,” the review’s author wrote. “The decision to completely overhaul the Kick-Off mode while having mostly ignored Pro Clubs and Career Mode for years will have me scratching my head for some time.”
