HBP film delay holding EA back from $120 Million

The other day we told you about EA delaying their Half-Blood Prince video game because of the film's delay. Today, EA is saying that the push back will put a $120 million hole in its current fiscal year earnings expectations. From GameSpot:

The gamemaker reported today that it had expected Half-Blood Prince to contribute $120 million in revenue during the company's current fiscal year, which ends March 31, 2009. While significant, the revenue is only a fraction of the $4.9 billion to $5.15 billion total earnings the publisher has forecast for its full fiscal year.

EA did not reveal whether the new summer release window would impact its earnings expectations for the game.
