EA Shares Drop on NASDAQ Due to Low Madden 25 Sales

Madden 13 McGehee

EA’s shares dropped 3.4% due to the poor sales of Madden 25 compared to Madden 13. EA moved 1.65 million units of Madden 13 last year, but only managed 1 million in sales this year in the same time period. 

The stunning thing about this is Madden Football is based on the most popular sport in North America, and is on consoles with an install base of over 150 million.

If you can move more than 1 million units and your based on the most popular sport in North America you can tell people are getting tired of the rehashes.

However, the PS4 and Xbox One are launching this year. It could be a lot of gamers are holding out for Madden on those systems.

    I hope EA follows the same footsteps as Atari, Factor 5 (they should have stuck around more with Nintendo), and THQ. GO BROKE!!!!!!

    Well, we all knew publishing rehash after rehash was going to eventually catch up with EA…

    Honestly after all the crap EA has done so far this year I don't give a rats ass if they die out. Yeah everyone would lose their jobs and that's terrible but they should have been focusing more on games than spreading lies.

  • gearchin

    Sorry but 1mil for that install base is stupid low. Dear EA, please actually care about your games, before you put out a rehash. Oh wait, not gonna happen, so what’s their excuse now?

  • sparkticle

  • onewhitekong
