EA Expects to Make $1 Billion From DLC Sales

Sherman Madden NFL 15

The developer behind all popular sports video games has announced that they expect to make over $1 billion from DLC sales. Most of this revenue is expected to come from Madden 15 additional content sales, with a prediction of $350 million dollars.

While DLC is not an old trend, it has now more power than gamers tend to believe. More and more developers tend to cut their games in little pieces prior to releasing the actual game, in order to sell them afterwards in Season Passes. It’s not a very pro-consumer practice, but we can hope that some of that money will be invested in the development of future titles.

Will you be picking up any DLC for any upcoming or already released EA Games title?
