EA’s FIFA ’12 has become the biggest release in the history of sports games and the number one videogame launch of the year so far. According to the recent figures gathered by the company, since its September 27 release, FIFA 12 has so far sold an estimated 3.2 million units across all consoles worldwide, “making it the biggest launch in the history of sports videogames and the biggest videogame launch of 2011 to date.”
“FIFA 12 is a stunning achievement by our team at EA Canada,” said Andrew Wilson, Executive Vice-President of EA Sports. “The massive FIFA online community has overwhelmingly connected to the new live services in the game, including EA Sports Football Club, and we intend to keep them engaged all season long as FIFA 12 follows the heartbeat of the football season.”
FIFA 12 was a big hit in the UK, as it became the third biggest launch ever in that country, behind only Call of Duty: Black Ops and Modern Warfare 2.
