Industry Analyst firm Cowen & Company has decided to increase its first year sales estimate for Battlefield 3 after revealing that it’s pre-orders are “roughly comparable” with those of Call of Duty: Black Ops.
Black Ops broke UK sales records for pre-orders when it was released last year, however as we reported a while back, Modern Warfare 3 is already tracking significantly ahead of Call of Duty: Black Ops at the same time last year.
So it seems that while Battlefield 3 is on course for some pretty impressive sales, Modern Warfare 3 will still be the one breaking records this year if things continue on the current course.
Battlefield 3 is out this October. You can pre-order your copy here (PC), here (Xbox 360) and here (PS3). Check out our preview here.
