Mass Effect Legendary Edition sales were ‘well above’ the expectations of EA

Mass Effect Legendary Edition sales

Video game publisher Electronic Arts released their Q1 2022 earnings on Wednesday morning, one which saw the company soundly beating estimates for both its net revenue ($1.55 billion USD in Q1 2022 over an expected revenue of $1.28 billion) and earnings-per-share ($0.71 vs. the company’s expectation of $0.63 in Q1 2022); according to the company, Mass Effect Legendary Edition sales, which were “well above” their expectations, were a clear contributing factor to their Q1 success.

“The launch of Mass Effect Legendary Edition, the remaster of the first three Mass Effect games, reignited the passion of fans around the world, driving sales performance well above our expectations,” EA CEO Andrew Wilson said during the company’s Q1 earnings call.

Wilson also mentioned the success of another big-name contributor to the publisher’s financial success, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.

“Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order coming to the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 was also a moment for new and returning players to jump into that amazing game,” he continued.

“We are going to continue to invest in both of these franchises as well as more of our amazing IP.”

Mass Effect Legendary Edition, the three-game-remaster of BioWare’s iconic space saga was released on May 14th, 2021 for the PC, Xbox One and Playstation 4 platforms. The game features single-player base content and over 40 DLC from Mass Effect, Mass Effect 2 and Mass Effect 3, including promo armors, weapons and packs as well as 4K Ultra HD remastering and optimization.
