EA chief executive officer Andrew Wilson also added that the company expected close to 50 million current-generation consoles to be sold by the end of the year. Sony recently announced that it had shipped 22.3 million PlayStation 4 units for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2015. By comparison, Microsoft revealed in November last year that the company had shipped a total of 10 million console units, although this figure combines figures for both Xbox One and Xbox 360 consoles.

The company reported earnings for its fourth quarter and fiscal year ended March 31, reporting increases in profit and revenue, outlining its release schedule for the coming year, and confirming that Titanfall 2 would not be released anytime soon.
