Over 10m units of DICE-developed military shooter Battlefield 3 have now been shipped worldwide, EA has announced.

To get a sense of scale, worldwide mega-hit FIFA 12 has shipped just 8m units since its release at the end of September.

The game’s predecessor Battlefield: Bad Company 2 has shipped 11m units in total since its release in March 2011.

Gamasutra reports that EA COO Peter Moore confirmed to investors that it’s the biggest one-day shipment EA has ever undertaken.

Boss John Riccitiello told investors that while he wasn’t able to reveal sales numbers for the time being, sell through is strong” with many retailers already re-ordering the title.
