EA Predicts Big Sales For Anthem

With the release of the Anthem demo earlier this month, it’s fair to say that EA is doing everything it can to ramp up the hype train for Anthem as much as possible.

With the game offering many similar features to games such as Destiny, they are hoping to replicate some of the success seen in those franchises. As gamers, however, all we’re hoping is that it’s better than the vast majority of offerings that EA tends to dump on the market.

In a report via PCGamesN, however, EA has seemingly made a rather shocking statement to investors. In a nutshell, the company has said that they predict 5-6 million game sales within the first 37-days of its release.

It’s Either Very Bold Or Very Naive

In any form of gaming terms, achieving anything close to 6 million sales in just over a month from the release is very good. EA isn’t, however, a company that has recently enjoyed good sales. The company even recently admitted that sales of Battlefield V were well below expectations. They did, however, attach the bizarre caveat that it was because they focussed too much on the single player game.

While Anthem could potentially be a huge success, personally, I’m not so sure. Although I have not played the demo myself, I have a number of friends who have and their feedback to me has (largely) been a resounding ‘meh’.

Yes, Anthem will probably sell well, but if the launch is plagued with issues and critical disappointment, 6 million in 37 days could easily come back to haunt EA.

    I played the demo and the beta. The small segment of the story we were able to play was very entertaining and the missions were fun as hell. Plus this game is gorgeous. I flew around endlessly just taking in the sights. Everyone says it’s generic, which may be true for the weapon system or matchmaking, but overall I’d say I enjoyed playing anthem more than any other game of it’s genre. Combat was fun and fluid, very responsive to what I wanted to do. My biggest complaint is the single player town, why can’t I have my buddies with me in town dicking around. Obviously my full review will have to wait until I have the full game in my hands.
