Star Wars Battlefront Sold 12 Million Copies in 2015, According to Analyst
Earlier this month, Electronic Arts COO Peter Moore revealed that the publisher was still expecting Star Wars Battlefront to move 13 million copies by April 2016. According to Wedbush Securities analyst Michael Pachter, they’re just one million short of that target.
In an article published by Fortune this week, they report Pachter’s findings that Star Wars Battlefront moved roughly six million copies in November, and six million in December. With an average retail sales price of $55, that would place revenue at around $660 million so far.
Another analyst, Evan Wilson of Pacific Crest Securities, said Star Wars Battlefront is sitting at as much as 13 million copies sold, with most of those sold at a discounted price prior to the release of The Force Awakens.
We may not learn official sales numbers for Star Wars Battlefront until next year, but EA did say it saw the biggest launch of any Star Wars game in history.
As for Disney Infinity Star Wars games and toys, Pachter believes they generated over $200 million this fall, putting it ahead of the $150 million generated by Skylanders SuperChargers and LEGO Dimensions. John Vignocchi, Vice President of Production at Disney Interactive Studios, confirmed earlier this month that Disney Infinity was the #1 franchise in the toys-to-life category.
