A few days ago EA revealed that they had shipped 10 million copies of Battlefield 3, but as we know, “shipped” doesn’t mean “sold”, and many wondered how many of those copies were sold. Well now EA has revealed just how many they’ve sold: 5 million. That’s including the 3 million pre-orders of the game. EA didn’t break down how many copies were sold on the individual systems.
Battlefield 3 launched exactly one week ago in the United States, and while gamers saw some issues with game servers, most of the server issues have been resolved by now. EA also announced that the Battlefield franchise to date spans 17 titles that have sold a combined total of 50 million units.
