Electronic Arts believes Mass Effect: Andromeda will sell about 3 million copies worldwide in the days surrounding its launch. According to CFO Blake Jorgensen, the company expects 30 to 50% of Andromeda’s lifetime sales to occur during the first few days. That means the game could end up with 6 million lifetime sales, about the same as Mass Effect 3.
Jorgensen mentioned the number during EA’s Q3 earnings call. The game will be released just before the end of the financial quarter, allowing the early sales to contribute to this financial year.
Mass Effect: Andromeda will be available on March 21 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
