FIFA 18 launched on September 29 for all platforms and its release was a big hit, apparently. Electronic Arts has reported that first-weekend peak concurrent users reached 1.6 million across all platforms for the first weekend.

“That’s a lot of people playing FIFA 18,” EA said in a tweet announcing the figure. That’s as specific as EA got regarding the figure. We don’t know how it compares to the first-weekend peak concurrent user figure for FIFA 17 or any other entry in the series. We have contacted EA in an attempt to get more insight and context on the 1.6 million figure.
