Battlefield V Sells 7.3 Million Units, 1 Million Lower Than Expected - SalesWilliam D'Angelo , posted on 02 June 2019 / 3,878 Views
Electronic Arts CEO Andrew Wilson in a financial call to investors announced Battlefield V has sold over 7.3 million units worldwide. This is about one million lower than the company was originally expecting.
"Battlefield V was designed from the beginning to offer a long-term live service," said Wilson. "In August, we determined that we needed some more time for final adjustments to the core gameplay to fully deliver on the potential of the live service, so we moved the ship date to November to accommodate those goals.
"Unfortunately, the later release date meant the game launched deeper into a competitive holiday window where heavy price discounting was a big factor."
Battlefield V released for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC worldwide on November 20, 2019.
