Electronic Arts has published an annual financial report for investors, according to which the company’s expectations for sales of Anthem have increased. EA’s CFO Blake Jørgensen stated that the company hopes to enjoy digital sales BioWare by 20-25%.
He also explained why EA began to expect more from the game.
Andrew mentioned that he received a lot of positive feedback. We think this is a great game and you’ll see it when the game’s release takes place next year. I guess our initial expectations for the game were too low.
When we started to demonstrate the game, we gradually began to change attitudes towards it. We changed our forecast over time and this is normal for a new IP. Now the game looks and plays just fine. This is what gave us more confidence in the forecast.
Also, the company said it had increased its overall forecast for the current fiscal year. EA expects big sales from Anthem , and at the same time, a profitability hobby from the project.
Release of the game is expected on February 22 on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
