DICE, an Electronic Arts studio, has announced that Battlefield: Bad Company 2 is on pace to break the all time download record for EA Games with over 2 million downloads the first five days of release between Xbox Live and PlayStation Network. Also, the PC beta has gone online and is already reaching hundreds of thousands downloads. So it seems like a pretty successful release for these guys, and the words “Call of Duty” aren’t even in the title!
“We couldn’t be more thrilled to hear that Battlefield: Bad Company 2 is already in the hands of almost 2½ million gamers, and it hasn’t even shipped yet,” said Patrick Bach, Senior Producer on Battlefield: Bad Company 2. “This massive rush to experience the game early is proof positive that action gamers are looking for more. Battlefield: Bad Company 2 delivers on every front. This is intelligent, strategic warfare that our competitors simply cannot replicate.”
Battlefield: Bad Company 2 will be in stores on March 2, 2010 in North America and March 4, 2010 in Europe for the Xbox 360, PlayStation3, and the PC. With the success of the demo, one would say that the release of the full game should be just as successful. Stay tuned to DualShockers for the latest news on Battlefield: Bad Company 2.
