If you believe Electronic Arts, it sounds like the game studio is seeing "extremely strong pre-orders" for its upcoming Star Wars Battlefront video game.




Speaking during an earnings call, EA COO Peter Moore didn't offer specific pre-order sales numbers. In addition, many gamers are purchasing - and then downloading - digital games, so pre-orders may not mean as much. "More and more, as we see digital start [to] take a hold with our consumers, that pre-orders become less of a key indicator."


EA hopes for a busy time during Gamescom next week in Germany, which is expected to have an even larger crowd this year. It's the perfect time to show off Star Wars Battlefront: "We expect to see a tremendous response from that."


Star Wars Battlefront is scheduled for release on November 17, and will be available for PC, Microsoft Xbox One, and Sony PlayStation 4.
