Battlefield 3 Premium draws in 1.3 million subscribers

Online Battlefield service becomes swift success

Battlefield 3 Premium, an online service providing five DLC bundles along with other exclusive additions, has accumulated about 1.3 million subscribers.


The online service, which launched in May, costs a $50 one-time fee in the US and similar prices in other regions.

The subscription count would suggest that Electronic Arts has already made about $65 million from the service, though the variables of different currencies will blur that figure.

EA Games Label president Frank Gibeau said that the publisher has made about $1.3 billion in the past twelve months through digital games sales.

The money generated from Battlefield 3 Premium will be recorded in the forth quarter, EA Said.
