Analyst predicts 'Call of Duty' to beat 'Battlefield' by 2.5 to 1
Tuesday 26 April 2011
Call of Duty game will sell a staggering 25 million copies in its first 12 months on the market, while
Battlefield 3 will manage an otherwise enviable 10 million during the same period, according to market analyst Doug Creutz of Cowen & Co.
Electronic Arts is hoping that Battlefield 3 will distinguish itself by making a strong challenge for the first-person shooter crown.
Ten million sales would be around 3 million better than Battlefield: Bad Company 2's record since its March 2010 debut.
However, Battlefield's 7 million lifetime tally was equalled by Call of Duty: Black Ops during its first week alone.
Activision's Black Ops amassed 14 million US sales between November 2010 and March 2011.
Both Battlefield 3 and the new Call of Duty are expected on Xbox 360, PC and PlayStation 3 late in 2011.
