We’ve got a quick bit from EA on this fine morning regarding the retail success of Battlefield 3. According to them, Battlefield 3 has now sold over 8 million units worldwide and has shipped over 12 million to store shelves.
EA went after Call of Duty with a very aggressive marketing campaign before the launch of Battlefield 3 and it seems to have paid off. While their sales are still nowhere near the astonishing heights that the CoD franchise continues to achieve, 8 million copies in just over a month is still nothing to deride.
Quick reminder for all of those still playing Battlefield 3 on consoles, the first major title update will be going live later this week on both the PS3 and Xbox 360. The PC version of said patch went live last week.
