Over 9 million people played the Battlefront Beta between PC, Playstation 4, and Xbox One. It ran from October 8th through the 13th, and was actually extended a day for “additional tests”.
On the game’s official site, Ingvarsdottir said EA “could not be happier” with the amount of support the game has recieved.
“Ever since we revealed Star Wars Battlefront back in April, we knew the beta would be a huge test for our game. After all, the beta has been one of the most talked about topics around the game over the last six months, and it was exciting (and a little nerve racking if I’m being completely honest) to open it up to the world.” – Ingvarsdottir, Senior Producer, DICE
Earlier this year, EA said the company expects to sell between 9 and 10 million copies of Star Wars Battlefront. With 9 million playing the beta, it seems like that estimate isn’t far off.
