Battlefield 1 sales

Chart-Track has revealed Battlefield 1 sales figures and turns out that EA’s recent iteration of the Battlefield franchise is more successful than some of the previous ones.

According to the website, which tracks physical units being sold in UK, Battlefield 1 sales managed to beat the combined week 1 sales of Battlefield 4 and Battlefield Hardline. Since it is 2016 and a huge number of games sold are digital copies, especially in the case of PC, exactly how many units were sold is unclear.

Bulk of these sales tracked by Chart-Track have to be exclusive to consoles as the game is only available via Origin on PC so many players prefer to buy digital copies from there or through other online retailers at cheaper prices.

These record breaking Battlefield 1 sales puts the game at #1 in the Top 10 sales chart for this week, narrowly missing the week 1 sales record set by Ubisoft’s Tom Clancy’s The Division released earlier this year.

EA or DICE hasn’t shared any sales information yet but according to bfstats.com, a website that tracks the number of players for all Battlefield games across all platforms, indicates that the combined number of concurrent players across PC, Xbox One and PS4 are above 800,000.

Despite having some launch day issues related to a DDoS attack, these sales are truly impressive and after factoring in word of mouth, the game will only end up getting more traffic.

The fact that this is the first AAA game set in a WW1 setting in a long time only helps as FPS fans have gotten tired of modern/futuristic settings in their games especially when it comes to the two giant FPS franchises; Call of Duty and Battlefield.

According to the sales chart, FIFA 17 still manages to maintain its position and is currently sitting at #2. The other two new releases this week, Civilization 6 and Lego Harry Potter Collection PS4 were unable to break through the #10 rank, because of their single platform releases.
