Battlefield 3 ships 12 million copies

Huge sales for EA's shooter

EA chief financial officer Eric Brown has announced Battlefield has sold 8 million copies.


Speaking at the Baird Technology Conference, Brown revealed EA has managed to sell 5 million during its first week on sale in late October.

Brown also announced that the publisher has now shipped 12 million copies of the game to retailers, 2 million more than it shipped for launch week.

No specific platform sales data was provided.

DICE recently released a gameplay video for their upcoming 'Back to Karkand' pack, due out next month.

Unforunately Iranian gamers will unfortunately have to miss out since the game has been banned in their territory.
