Electronic Arts COO Peter Moore reported the statistic on EA’s fiscal fourth quarter earnings call this afternoon, citing data from The NPD Group.
“It landed phenomenally well,” Moore said.
Titanfall, developed by Respawn Entertainment and published by EA, debuted on March 11 for Xbox One and PC exclusively. The Xbox 360 version debuted April 8.
Moore wouldn’t detail the breakdown between digital sales vs. in-store disc sales for Titanfall, but said that for any given new game, EA is seeing 12-to-15 percent of sales coming from the digital side.
Titanfall was the best-selling U.S. console title in March. To help increase more sales of the Xbox One, Microsoft created a special discounted bundle specifically for Titanfall last month. However, the game hasn’t helped it propel ahead of Sony for the most popular next-generation console, as PlayStation 4 now has at least a two million console advantage in total sales over the Xbox One.
EA today also announced that it will be partnering with Respawn again for “new Titanfall experiences,” in the future. The company beat expectations today with $914 million in revenue and a non-GAAP EPS of $0.48.
