Analyst Projects Low Sales For Medal of Honor: Warfighter
Posted on Tuesday, July 31 @ 10:50:17 Eastern by Nicholas Tan
According to Forbes, Cowen Group's analyst Doug Creutz has painted a poor picture for Electronic Arts and its upcoming Medal of Honor: Warfighter title, resulting in EA's stock trading lower this morning.
He has dropped his projection of 2.3 million units sold for the franchise sequel to 1.4 million:
Likewise, he has dropped his projections of Star Wars: The Old Republic subscriptions from 1 million to 500,000 "due to continued poor server density trends".
While we think that the subs for SWTOR will likely continue to suffer due to a lack of end-game content, we believe that the E3 performance of Medal of Honor: Warfighter has a chance to amend any mistakes that the previous Medal of Honor installment made. (At the very least, Daniel thinks so; read his preview!)
So while the "poor quality" of that installment will likely hurt Warfighter's sales numbers, the almost 40% drop in projected sales seems to us too pessimistic a conjecture. For EA's sake, we hope so.
