Star Wars: Battlefront expected to sell 9-10 million copies

Electronic Arts announces sales target for the new Star Wars game.

During a post-earnings financial call on Tuesday, Electronic Arts CFO Blake Jorgensen announced that the company is expecting to sell at least 9-10 million copies of Star Wars: Battlefront.

The game launches on November 17, only for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.

The 9-10 million figure refers to copies expected to be sold during EA's fiscal year 2016 (ending March 31, 2016), and is not a total lifetime sales estimate for the game.

Jorgensen also pointed out that, because Battlefront is of course based on Disney's "Star Wars" franchise, EA will have to pay a royalty fee to Disney.

Still, Jorgensen said EA is overall "very optimistic and excited" about the potential for Battlefront.
