EA Releases 2010 Earnings Report

Electronic Arts released their Q3 2011 fiscal year earnings report today, and the first bit of news we have is that Medal of Honor and Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit sold 5 million units a piece, worldwide.  Although they are both tried and true franchises, it’s kind of surprising when you think about the fact that both games launched so late in the year.  Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit was met with a lot more critical acclaim than Medal of Honor but both games still have a solid online community and are likely to see further support via DLC.

Also topping the 5 million list for 2010 were the latest itterations of Madden and FIFA, as well as Battlefield: Bad Company 2.  While we don’t have any official numbers as of yet, EA mentioned that Dead Space 2 is currently outselling the original Dead Space by a margin of 2 to 1.

It’s not all sunshine and unicorns for EA, however.  Despite having a strong software lineup, they actually ended up losing $322 million dollars in the 2010 calender year, with an overall revenue stream of $1.053 billion.  Believe it or not, that’s actually an improvement over their 2009 calender year, when they lost $749 million.

  1. I don’t get why it’s called Q3 2011 fiscal year :/

    • Hopefully CC will add a comment explaining how it all works.

    • Fiscal year starts in April. So, from April 1st 2010 we were in 2011 FY.

  2. figures in last paragraph are staggering. Ill help em out a little & buy bfbc3 on release.

    (love the advert at top of page.
    Acorn Stairlift, aiming at their future audience? I’d like a rumble pack & speakers fitted, for gaming on the move ty)

  3. I’ve bought every ‘Need for Speed’ game until ‘Hot Pursuit’. I didn’t get this one as there’s too many good games been released in the last few months, plus ‘Test Drive’ and ‘Motorstorm’ are just round the corner. I wouldn’t have time to play them all.
