From nearly a week back, but I don’t recall seeing a thread and couldn’t find one:

The fiscal year ends on March 31, 2019, and EA CFO Blake Jorgensen told the company's investors that it has modelled between five and six million sales for Anthem by that date.

Bioware's highly anticipated online game launches on February 22, leaving six weeks for it to reach that target. According to EA CEO Andrew Wilson, that forecast has not changed since last quarter, even though Anthem's demo encountered some well publicised technical issues.
Honestly, a little lower than what I was expecting. On a related note, back in October, EA raised expectations by around 20%. This figure seems to be the number forecasted in Oct 2018
