In their financial reports released today, EA has shown that FIFA is still a very powerful franchise. According to the reports, FIFA 13 sold more than its predecessor, totaling over 12 million units through the third quarter.
While the FIFA brand brought in over $230 million, including FIFA World Class Soccer and FIFA Online 2, FIFA 13 alone raked in $100 million in the same quarter. I guess everyone still loves fast kicking, low scoring, and ties!
You know what they say, if it's good enough for Snoop Dogg Lion, it's good enough for anyone.
