Battlefield 3

Battlefield 3 is officially a thing. Okay, it was before. But now it's a bigger thing than Battlefield: Bad Company 2. Electronic Arts has confirmed that the upcoming first-person shooter, out October 25, has surpassed last year's game with 1.25 million pre-orders (via Gamasutra).

"We have a pretty extensive campaign planned for BF3," EA CFO Eric Brown said yesterday at the Citi 2011 Tech Conference. "We have the advantage of a two-and-a-half week early launch window versus our competitor [Activision's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3], and we intend to use that."

Bad Company 2 managed to move more than 2.3 million units in North America and Europe in the two weeks following its release in March 2010. The long-awaited sequel is arriving at a busier time of year, but with much stiffer competition going up against it. Still, you can probably expect to see that sales figure crushed.
