EA’s Star Wars games have been massively successful from a commercial perspective, as the publisher just announced that its various Star Wars games have collectively sold 52 million copies and generated $3 billion in revenue life-to-date.
During an earnings call, EA CEO Andrew Wilson said the company has enjoyed a “long and profitable” relationship with Lucasfilm over the years, going back decades.
“We have generated a number of great franchises: Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, Galaxy of Heroes, Battlefront, Jedi Fallen Order, and most recently Squadrons. That represents over $3 billion life-to-date in net bookings and 52 million games sold.”
