EA losing a lot of money

By Grayshadow, Posted 30 Nov 2017

It would seem that EA cannot escape the issues surrounding Star Wars Battlefront. With the community up in arms we've seen Disney force their hand to remove the controversial microtransaction system and governments around the world taking aim at loot boxes in general. Now EA's stock has dropped in value.

As of Tuesday EA stock dropped in value by 8.5% or about $3 billion of shareholder value. While the factors above are contributed to this the play the poor sales of Battlefront 2 is also a relevant cause.

In the UK alone sales for Battlefront 2 were down 60% compared to the predecessor. EA's other games that included similar microtransactions such as Need for Speed Payback and FIFA 18 saw massive community backlash due to game's microtransaction system.

Star Wars Battlefront 2 is now available for Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
