Left 4 Dead 2 Sells 2.9 Million

2/8/2010 at 8:38 PM

Despite selling 2.9 million copies of Left 4 Dead 2, as well as 2.7 million of Dragon Age: Origins, Electronic Arts posted a loss of 82 million dollars last quarter.  Sounds bad, right?  Considering the same quarter last year EA lost over 641 million dollars,  that's a pretty solid improvement year over year.

It's good to see sales of the four player co-op shooter selling well, despite some misgivings about the timing of a sequel to last year's co-op game of the year.  EA is looking to have a solid next quarter and is well on the way there with Mass Effect 2 selling over 2 million copies in its first two weeks alone.  Sprinkle in some Army of Two: The 40th Day for good measure and that ship might just be headed in the right direction.
