Medal of Honor‘s week one sales have already brought EA a comfortable paycheck: $100 million; a figure revealed by CEO John Riccitiello while chatting with the folks at Fox Business (via).
It’s not quite on the level of Halo: Reach — which earned $200 million in 24 hours — and chances are it’ll be easily beaten by next month’s Call of Duty: Black Ops as well which analysts are expecting will repeat Modern Warfare 2‘s successes, but winning back the shooter crown is “a marathon not a sprint,” EA said of the reboot’s launch last week. So they must be quite pleased with the achievement.
Analysts have speculated the game to sell 3.5 million units before the year’s out. EA’s almost half way there; the game’s sold 1.5 million copies in its first five days of availability, as announced yesterday.
