Defined by its intense vehicle choices, variety of weapons and destructive terrains, Battlefield: Bad Company 2 is one of the best games to be released this year. EA and DICE‘s shooter is seen as the direct competitor to Modern Warfare 2 but are the sales for the title up to par?
Electronic Arts has announced that Battlefield: Bad Company 2, which was once the fastest selling game in the UK, has sold over 2.3 million units since its release a few weeks ago in both US and the UK. The title is now on pace to becoming the top selling title of March, 2010.
EA has also released some interesting stats for the shooter. An accumulative of 81 billion points have been earned in online multiplayer matches, as well as 2.9 million hours being spent playing online in the last 24 hours alone.
Karl Magnus Troedsson, Executive Producer of the Battlefield franchise speaks of his delight with the news:
We are so thrilled with the success of Battlefield: Bad Company 2 sales and fan response. In the first 48 hours we had such a tremendous rush to multiplayer gameplay that our servers experienced overwhelming demand. This is a testament to the massive response players have had worldwide for the extraordinary action experienced in the Battlefield sandbox.
DICE and EA have brought more servers online. We now have enough capacity to handle all BFBC2 connections seamlessly and we continue to monitor online play daily.
