Although it failed to meet expectations for Anthem, Electronic Arts continues to set very ambitious goals for its projects. At the shareholders’ meeting last Tuesday (7), the publisher said it plans to sell 6 to 8 million copies of Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order by the end of the 2019 fiscal year, which ends in March 2020 .
EA CEO Andrew Wilson did not justify why the expectations were so high, but the excitement about what has been presented so far may be one of the justifications. Developed by Respawn, the game uses Unreal Engine 4 and promises to offer an experience centered on the single player.
The use of the Star Wars brand and the proximity to the end of the new trilogy should also help Electronic Arts achieve its goals. The most recent title that the publisher brought from this universe, Battlefront II, did not live up to his expectations, but even with the controversies it generated, it managed to sell more than 7 million copies before the end of 2017, the year it hit stores.
Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order promises to reveal its first official gameplay during the next EA Play event, which coincides with the start of E3. With versions for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, the game is scheduled to receive its worldwide release on November 15th.
