EA Q4 FY14 Results Released, Signals Massive Success for Publisher

The EA Q4 FY14 results were just released for EA and things could not be looking better for the publisher. Calendar year-to-date, EA continues to be the number one publisher on PS4 and Xbox one thanks to the sales of FIFA 14, Titanfall, Battlefield 4 (the three of which were in the top five best-selling titles across all platforms), Need for Speed Rivals and Madden 25. (Battlefield 4, EA, FIFA 14, Industry, Need For Speed: Rivals, PS3, PS4, TitanFall, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Wow, I knew EA was successful, but these are some monster statistics. Kinda scary that they are basically controlling what we play.

TitanFall bringing home the big numbers
MasterCornholio  +   485d ago
I didn't see any sales statistics in the article. All it said was that Titanfall, Fifa14 and Battlefield 4 were their best selling games.

I have no idea what the actual numbers are.

@MasterCornholio

hiding Titanfall numbers proves it was failing commercially.

you have to lump in the $150 million microsoft paid for exclusivity.

"Mobile revenue set a new EA record, contributing nearly $460 million for the fiscal year. Shockingly, EA’s Ultimate Team services generated more than $380 million in fiscal year 2014, with Madden Ultimate Team growing 90% year-over-year."

They made nearly 1 billion on mobile games and Madden. Thats crazy.

For a game to be in the top 3 that is only on 3 platforms and the others it's competing against are on 5 platforms? That's a failure? Something seems off big time. You do realize how many games EA puts out right?

**edit** keep in mind this is an article about EA and NOT Titanfall. So numbers are for EA. Hopefully they will show them soon though. I am curious.

Titanfall is probably still under a million since they haven't announced it being any higher yet. EA must be kicking themselves over that deal.

920,000 copies sold between 11 March and 31 March 2014 for Titanfall. Remember this was just for the Xbox One and PC. Since the Xbox 360 version did not release until April.

This is for anyone who wanted actual figures

This is what was reported on Gamesbeat

@ma1asiah, good on them. I stand corrected, must have missed that news.

I don't know how many people follow @jonshiring or @Joystiq on Twitter but he just tweeted in response to @joystiq, that the 920,000 copies of Titanfall sold, was based on copies sold in North America ONLY for the Xbox One and PC.

It also does not include digital copies.

That is why for all my gaming news that is hot of the press well I can never fault Twitter

@dlconspiracy

That's some good numbers. EA will remain the richest 3rd party publisher for a very long time. They have a huge catalogue and the most no of ips and sports franchises to their name. I'm glad titanfall did good actually. Its actually still topping charts and should be close to 2mil now or above that and I'm guessing EA/respawn are very happy about that,atleast the sucess of titanfall will ensure that gamers get to see a sequel down the line.

Great job EA.

So much fear over Titanfall success.
BX81  +   484d ago
Actually if you got to gametrailers.com there is an article saying xb1 and PC numbers are 925,000.
DLConspiracy  +   484d ago
@christocolus

I agree. I am very happy for Respawn. They have really been very attentive with their fans and shown us a lot. This game is beyond platforms. It's a new IP and it can only get better from here on out.
-Foxtrot  +   485d ago
This is why EA can do what they want, because they know there games would still sell well regardless.
venom06  +   485d ago
they're not controlling what you play, you are... But it is good to see that they're doing good. Compeition is ALWAYS a good thing in the gaming world, and both them and Activision will continue to pressure each other for quality titles in the future.
ValKilmer  +   485d ago
I can't stop from playing Titanfall. It's been hammered down my throat so much how awesome it was, I was basically forced to throw down $60 at GameStop lest I be thought of as uncool.
BillytheBarbarian  +   485d ago
If only Activision could team up with 2k and make the ultimate football game.
g-0ff  +   485d ago
This is what happens when EA puts their money behind new IP. I just wish they'd take more risks more often.
modesign  +   484d ago
they made most of their cash from battlefield, fifa, madden, need for speed.
Dlacy13g  +   484d ago
"FIFA 14, Titanfall, Battlefield 4 (the three of which were in the top five best-selling titles across all platforms"

I am pretty sure they made a chunk of money from Titanfall too if its top 5 and only ran on 3 platforms compared to the others that were on 4 or more platforms.
DLConspiracy  +   484d ago
They didn't say totals but they did say in which order.

"thanks to the sales of FIFA 14, Titanfall, Battlefield 4 (the three of which were in the top five best-selling titles across all platforms"

That's not bad for a game (Titanfall) that was only on 3 platforms to fight with the big boys. When the others were on 5 different platforms.

I have my doubts that's the actuall order. If Titanfall would have outsold BF4 they would have been bragging about it how much it sold.
DLConspiracy  +   484d ago
Yeah but this isn't about Titanfall. It's about EA.
ma1asiah  +   484d ago
Ok here are some more up to date figures

"Titanfall, the popular sci-fi shooter, sold through 925,000 units last month in the U.S."

http://www.geekwire.com/201...

At least this one confirms that the figure is for the US only and not global figures.
