Despite (or perhaps in part thanks to) the controversy surrounding BioWare’s latest game, Electronic Arts is sitting pretty with $200 million in sales. Yep, Mass Effect 3 made some premium cheese amidst the rage and outcry. Truly, the Star Wars for a new generation.
EA didn’t break down sales figures, but one can reasonably assume we’re past three million, given the monetary amounts involved.
Mass Effect 3 was credited alongside Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning and FIFA Street and SSX for giving EA strong financial results this quarter. All four games have been classified as “successful” by the publisher’s standard as it boasts of an “All-Time High Non-GAAP Net Revenue of $4.2 Billion in Fiscal 12.”
It may be voted the worst North American company of the year, but it’s looking to be one of the richest publishers of the industry. Again.
