Analysts expect Battlefield 3 sales to hit 11 million in first year

Saturday, 23rd July 2011 14:23 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Cowen and Company has changed its full year sales predictions for Battlefield 3 from 8 million to 11 million. The firm said thanks to EA’s marketing campaign, the title is seeing pre-orders “comparable” to pre-order figures for last year’s Call of duty Black Ops. Earlier this week, UK retailer GAME said pre-orders for BF3′s closest rival, Modern Warfare 3, are outpacing last year’s Black Ops. The figures for both shooters should make for an interesting discussion once holiday sales are compiled an posted in January. Thanks,

    i think it’ll be MoH in 2012 and respawn in 2013 which will give BF and MoH a break and a chance for respawn to stand on its own.

    Crysis? meh who cares -_-
    srsly tho thats more up to crytek than EA on that part.

    @1 That actually makes a fuckton of sense.

    They definitely wouldn’t launch a Battlefield title to eclipse the Respawn game, but I suspect that the players under the Partners program decide themselves when to launch. Although I guess that depends on how big EAs investment is.
