Modern Warfare 3 Will Sell 15 Million More Copies Than Battlefield 3

And so, according to Cowen and Company analyst Doug Creutz, Activision’s already won.

That’s according to new research done by the firm, which predicts Activision’s latest Call of Duty game will sell 25 million copies worldwide within its first year, which is more than double the amount predicted for Battlefield 3. According to Cowen and Company, the latter will sell around 10 million copies in its lifetime.

The prediction sees EA Battlefield 3 selling more than its predecessor, Battlefield: Bad Company 2, a game that sold 7 million on a global scale. When compared to Call of Duty: Black Ops, a game that’s sold over 13 million copies in the U.S. alone, Battlefield: Bad Company 2 looks childish, selling only 3 million units in the same region.

November is around the bend believe it or not, and we’ll see if the analyst group predictions have any relevance. EA’s planning to go-to-head with Activision come fall. It should be an interesting ride.

    I am sure that this is true, but battlefield 3 will be a much better game.

    dunno if id put it that high.
    the whole IW debacle has really hurt them, and allot of peoples confidence so i wont be surprised if it fails to beat BOs sales.
    will see.
    one things for certain, its pretty obvious which ones going to be the better game!
    id rather have my name on a game that everyone loves and sold fairly well, then a game that has mixed feelings but sold through the roof!
