While Battlefield 2042 had many technical problems at launch and got negative reviews from players, the game still might be doing great in terms of sales. According to a new report, the shooter reached 4.23 million units sold in its first week.
This data came from insider and journalist Tom Henderson. According to the report, Battlefield 2042 week 1 sales are below Battlefield 3 (4.68 million), but above Battlefield 1 (3.46 million) and Battlefield 4 (2.59 million).
Henderson also shared Battlefield 2042’s Thanksgiving stats. The game reached 1.67 million active users across all platforms over this period, with Steam accounting for about 20% of the total player base.
