Electronic Arts predicts to ship 14 million units of Star Wars Battlefront II by the end of the current fiscal year, but hopes to ship more.

May 9, 2017

During Electronic Arts’ quarterly conference call for investors and analysts, Chief Executive Officer Andrew Wilson talked more about the upcoming Star Wars Battlefront II.

Wilson mentioned that content at launch is going to be over three times the size as that of the first game of the series, and the company also has a “very very robust” live services plan, that will be talked about around EA Play and E3.

Chief Financial Officer Blake Jorgensen mentioned that Electronic Arts shipped 14 million units of the first Battlefront between its release and the end of the related fiscal year, and the company expects to ship “essentially the same number” of Battlefront II units before March 31st, 2018. Of course, Electronic Arts aspires to sell more than that.


Wilson also explained that the development teams are building on the feedback from the fans, and the game will include a brand new story, a new single player campaign, new modes, characters, vehicles and planets from all eras in the Star Wars universe.

The Star Wars Battlefront II debut trailer generated over sixteen million views on YouTube and other social platforms, and the publisher will share “much” more in the weeks to come.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
