Star Wars Battlefront Sells 12M?

A story from last week's Fortune has some speculation on Star Wars Battlefront sales numbers from professional speculator Michael Pachter, analyst at Wedbush Securities. According to his estimates, EA sold six million copies of the new Star Wars action game in each of the past two months, leading to his conclusion that the game has generated approximately $660 million in revenue. They quote a different analyst pegging the number of copies sold as closer to 13 million, though how either of these estimates were calculated is not revealed. Thanks IGN.

It will be funny this time next year when EA announces Battlefront servers will be turned off....but look at the shiny new game we just came out with! That one lets you play online plus look at all the high ratings it got in the (paid off) press.

Just in time for the new game with TFA DLC for ultimate cash-ins *CHA-CHING*. New StarWarz playable characters include: Poo Digimon, FretfulNumbskull-Trooper87, TrashCompactorPhasma (Special Ability, Get Trash Compacted), OldLeia, MartyrSolo, EmoJacenSolo with special TemperTantram-Mode, and more! Next year, prepare for more paid maps and character DLC with the release of yet another SW films as the franchise becomes epically saturated.

They've already announced no TFA dlc for the game.

So they say right now but who knows maybe it will show up six months from now when they are scratching their heads for expansion ideas to finish the season pass. They technically have already done one TFA DLC of sorts and that is the Battle of Jakku.

I really wish the Clone Wars era wasn't considered poisoned fruit. The original Battlefront games had some really amazing maps set in that time period.
