Closing of Visceral Studios should have made the highlights, something like $15,000 a month per employee no longer being flushed down the toilet.

Visceral was not even a rounding error.

They were shuttered because making games elsewhere is cheaper, tax breaks in Montreal for example.

Sure not the only reason, but it's high on the list.

Ugh, tax breaks in Montreal, my city. The city's infrastructure is falling apart, it's insane. A new car will last about 1.5-2 years on these roads before needing new shocks and possible axles. But they're giving it away to shit like game studios... when they're not being shaken down by the mob...

BF1 sold 23 million copies? Or am I just misinterpreting that statement?

Who the fuck knows, they could be including people who participated in the beta and didn't buy retail, or people who did the 10-hour Access trial thingy.

I wouldn't be surprised if it was the best selling Battlefield game though, back in the BF2 days I was just counting the days until the majority of FPS gamers saw how much more fun this franchise is than something like CoD. The numbers tend to reflect this trend.

Sounds about right, including PC, PS4 and XB1 sales. Battlefield games are generally solid performers on any platforms they are released on.

BF games tend to get heavily discounted pretty quickly. That's got to result in more sales, even if it doesn't produce more revenue.

The community grew, whatever that means. That's the wonderful thing about press releases, creative language is so much fun.

Everyone focusing on BF1, how about that BS with Madden. People get more people buying and by how many. But 50% engaged in Longshot story mode? GTFO.

23 million is more than just solid. I have a feeling they're including people who just played the beta/demo or played the game on Origin Access.
