EA has released details about their fiscal Q2 sales and how people have been playing their games. FIFA 17 has 20% more sales in Q2 than FIFA 16 did last year, and 43 million players have engaged with EA sports titles on consoles and mobile.
Two thirds of FIFA 17 players have engaged with the Journey, and since its release Alex Hunter has played over 124 million matches and scored 164 million goals in his first month. Not a bad goal record.
2K’s parent company Take-Two Interactive has also seen a roughly 20% increase, with their net revenue hitting $420 million. While Rockstar, and their hugely successful GTA 5, are responsible for a huge amount of income, NBA 2K16 was noted as a main contributor. So far, since it’s release, NBA 2K17 has sold 4.5 million units.
