EA’s third quarter financial results have been published today, revealing that Dragon Age: Inquisition was the most successful launch for BioWare since the developer’s creation.
EA’s fiscal Q3 ended December 31, 2014 and net the publishing giant $1.428 billion, which was above the company’s expectations of $1.275 billion. Another interesting note in the mass of information presented in EA’s press release is the claim that more than half of the company’s net revenue for the calendar year 2014 was made digitally.
EA attributed much of its success for Q3 not only to Dragon Age: Inquisition, but also to its major sports titles and even older games like Titanfall and Battlefield 4. 2014 also saw EA as the “#1 publisher on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles in the world.”
EA expects to have made $4.485 billion for fiscal year 2015, which ends on March 31, 2015. Clearly, the negative reaction to some of the company’s business practices have not negatively impacted its bottom line yet.
