Sales of Star Wars Battlefront 2 of EA in the United Kingdom are down by 61% compared to those recorded during Star Wars Battlefront's release in 2015.
Second GamesIndustry.biz, sales fell by 50 percent compared to Battlefield 1. Although the decline is significant, it is worth noting that official sales figures in the UK do not include digital sales, but only retail sales. However, the mess of Star Wars Battlefront 2's launch, with the excitement of microtransfection prices and a poorly implemented progression system, seems to have had a decisive impact.
The game also suspended micro-transactions, a move that seems to come directly from Disney.
Because of the weak start of the UK, Star Wars Battlefront 2 has failed to win the top spot in the weekly sales charts with Call of Duty WW2, which maintains the top of the charts.
