A little messy on my first official mission from the brotherhood. Got the job done though!...
Today EA posted its Q3 revenues, and they were rather good. Raking in $1.65 billion in revenue, compared to the $1.55 billion they had projected for themselves. Their losses were also an improvement, $205 million compared to the $322 million year-over-year.
EA also announced that they had sold a mighty 2 million units of Star Wars: The Old Republic, and that BioWare’s MMO has 1.7 million daily active subscribers.
Going hand in hand with these strong results was the announcement that EA’s distribution service Origin had 9.3 million registered users, and has generated more than $100 million in revenue since it’s launch.
“We are pleased to report a strong holiday quarter driven by Battlefield 3, FIFA12 and a strong showing by our digital games and services,” said EA CEO John Riccitiello. “Star Wars: The Old Republic is developing a committed community of players with more than 1.7 million active subscribers and growing.”
All in all, sounds like a pretty damn good third quarter for the company.
