EA Cites Star Wars: Battlefront as Biggest Launch for a Star Wars Game Ever, Biggest Digital Launch for Company

on November 25, 2015 10:18 AM

Having released to the masses last week, EA and DICE’s long-awaited Star Wars: Battlefront was already expected to be a massive hit given its proximity to the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, though according to EA it could be an ever bigger success than expected.

In a new blog post from EA, the company confirmed that Star Wars: Battlefront “is the biggest launch of a Star Wars™ video game ever,” while also holding the title as “the largest digital launch in the history of EA.”

Specific sales numbers or copies shipped were not revealed by either EA or DICE at this time, so we’ll have to wait and see in the meantime for more specific figures or indications of its sales next month, though with The Force Awakens right around the corner, we’re sure it will do pretty well for itself, along with all others things Star Wars.

Star Wars: Battlefront is available now for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
