We’re not the Financial Times and we’re definitely not bothered about how other EA games are performing financially, but we do of course have a vested interest in our beloved FIFA, which by all accounts has sold like hot cakes. EA have released their preliminary financial results for its first fiscal quarter ended June 30th 2011 and they’re mighty pleased with the results.
Most of the report is as you’d expect mind numbingly dull but because we’re nice we’ll pull out all of the best FIFA highlights just for you:
- For the quarter, EA had four of the top 20 selling games in Western markets: Portal 2, Crysis 2, FIFA 11, and Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 12: The Masters.
- Life to date, including digital and mobile downloads, FIFA 11 has sold nearly 15 million units, demonstrating strong cross platform performance.
- EA Games Label and EA SPORTS garnered 148 award nominations and 19 wins at E3. Winners included Mass Effect 3, Battlefield 3, STAR WARS: The Old Republic, FIFA 12, SSX, Need for Speed: The Run, Kingdoms of Amalur:Reckoning, Madden NFL 12, and NHL 12.
- FIFA 11’s digital revenue as of July 26th 2011 was $64 million through Q1 FY2012.
- That’s forecast to grow a further $7 million through Q4 FY2012.
So there you have it, a little inside knowledge on the financial performance of FIFA 11. We’ve added the most relevant screenshots below and if anyone could tell us who is still buying digital products for FIFA 09, we’d appreciate it…
