Star Wars games generated over $1 billion last year

It seems Disney Interactive and EA benefited from the new Star Wars movie release when it comes to sales.

According to Wedbush Securities analyst Michael Pachter, Electronic Arts sold approximately 6 million Star Wars Battlefront games in November and an additional 6 million in December, which according to Patcher means $660 million in revenue for EA.

Disney meanwhile has sold over $200 million worth of Disney Infinity Star Wars games and toys, making it the number one franchise in the toys-to-life category, at least since the release of The Force Awakens.

Meanwhile, Star Wars mobile games such as EA’s Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes ($186,000), Konami’s Star Wars: Force Collection ($56,000) and Disney’s Star Wars: Commander Worlds in Conflict ($43,000) generated over $285,000 in just the first day after the launch of the new film.

It seems that if you want your game to make money, having Star Wars in the title is probably a good idea.
