EA’s FIFA 14 has been crowned as the internet global buzz champion of Gamescom 2014.
New research from Way to Blue collating Twitter, blog and online news mentions, saw EA’s football title grab a massive 41 per cent share of the online noise throughout the German trade show.
It was followed by fellow EA title Battlefield 4 (19 per cent) which forced Activision’s Call of Duty: Ghosts into third (12 per cent).
Perhaps the biggest surprise, however, was Konami’s PES 2014 which came in fourth winning a seven per cent share.
It will be interesting to see if the Battlefield 4 momentum carries into launch week,” Way to Blue’s Adam Merrett stated. For the first time, could we see a Battlefield release sell more units than a Call of Duty release?
FIFA 14 completely stormed ahead of the pack during Gamescom 2013, but it’s nice to see such a large share of voice for PES 2014. We will be keeping a close eye on these 14 titles up until launch to see who maintains their buzz into their launch windows.”
