Something different this time. I was following the Battelfield franchise for quite some time and they messed up big time this year. A lot of unnecessary stuff in the game- pandering to sjws and so on. Ok, with that in mind- the small news article:
Quite a few expected Battlefield 5 to be at the top of the sales charts. But as has now been announced, the numbers are rather disappointing. Publishers Electronic Arts, in particular, wanted better information on sales. Especially in Great Britain the current part is clearly behind its predecessor. The sales of the physical version have decreased by 63 percent compared to Battlefield 1 from 2016. There is no more concrete information yet, but all in all it is disappointing news for the publisher and developer DICE.
At the moment it hasn’t even been enough for the top 3 of the sales charts on the island. The list is still headed by FIFA 19, which has made the best start in a long time. Behind it is Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, followed by Red Dead Redemption 2, followed by Battlefield 5 in 4th place. Directly behind are Forza Horizon 4, Spider-Man, Fallout 76, Pokemon Let’s go Pikachu, Spyro Reignited Trilogy and Mario Kart 8: Deluxe. This makes it clear that even the direct competitor from Activision is more popular than Battlefield 5. The information was published by the GFK.
