EA’s share price dropped dramatically due to the “low” sales that Madden 25 earned in its first week.
Selling over 1 million copies in the first week isn’t low, but it’s less than the 1.65 million copies that Madden 13 sold in its first week. Gameskinny reported that the share price for EA dropped 3.4.% closing at $26.76 on September 6th.
The main reason that could have contributed to the drop in sales for Madden 25 is that many gamers are waiting for the PS4 and Xbox One versions of Madden 25 to drop in November. There’s no point buying a current version if a next-gen one is on its way.
Are you picking up Madden 25 today or in November?
