Just a few months ago, some industry observers were wondering whether Electronic Arts would be able to cope without close cooperation with the International Federation of Football, but it turns out that EA Sports FC 24 can easily be classified as an extremely successful venture of the American manufacturer and publisher. Without any alternative, players eagerly jump onto EA’s game servers.
EA Sports FC 24 hit the market in September, and the creators were quickly able to celebrate the result of 6.8 million players . Sports fans were particularly eager to join in the fun during the pre-premiere access, which turned out to be just a foretaste of all the attractions.
EA Sports FC 24 attracted over 11.3 million players around the world in the first week after its premiere, and the latest data indicates that this result has been surpassed – in the first 4 weeks, the game “had over 14.5 million active accounts.”
Andrew Wilson, CEO of EA, did not hide his satisfaction with the reception of the production during the presentation of the financial results. As he emphasized, the company “successfully launched EA Sports FC, transforming one of the largest franchises in the world into a powerful, interactive platform for the future of football fandom.”
The corporation boasts about the premiere of a new IP, which is true in its own way – after all, it is the first part of EA Sports FC.
The indicated number seems to be an important detail, as the publisher does not provide copies sold, but is based on the number of players, which is caused by the release of virtual football in EA Play Pro – the presentation of the results for Starfield is identical, which has strengthened the Xbox Game Pass and PC Game Pass libraries since its premiere. .
