28 October 2011

Battlefield 3 has shipped 10 million units globally, publishing giant Electronic Arts confirmed during its Q2 earnings call last night.

Exact sales figures have yet to be divulged, though EA added that sell-through to consumers is “strong.”

"Battlefield 3 was launched on Tuesday and has opened very strong," commented EA’s CEO and executive director, John Riccitiello. "We shipped 10 million units to retail and we are already receiving reorders. The data is still early but sell-through is strong."

Peter Moore, the recently-appointed COO of EA, added, "As you know, we launched this title earlier this week, and the results have been tremendous, thanks to the superb quality of the title produced by our DICE Studio in Stockholm, and the world-class marketing executed by our teams globally."

"We couldn't be happier with the launch of Battlefield 3."

Battlefield 3 hit U.S. stores on Tuesday and is released in Europe today. Check out our review here.
