Battlefield 3 Pre-orders on Pace with Black Ops Pre-orders

Last week industry analyst predicted that Battlefield 3 would cash-in 8 million dollars in sales for DICE, but today, thanks to a pre-order report, that number has rose substantially.

The Cowen & Company analyst firm revealed that Battlefield 3’s pre-orders are comparable, even on pace, with Black Ops pre-orders. As a result of this, the firm has bumped their prediction of 8 million in sales to 11 million.

While Modern Warfare 3 is on pace to surpass Black Ops pre-orders, it is still impressive that DICE’s shooter is standing tall with the coveted Call of Duty franchise.
