EA has shipped more than 10 million copies of Battlefield 3 to retailers, the publisher has announced.

Speaking during an investor call earlier today, CEO John Riccitiello claimed that it was already receiving requests for re-orders from vendors.

COO Peter Moore added that it represented the "biggest day one shipment the company has ever done," and it was "maybe double what we did on Medal of Honor."

It also confirmed that the game pre-sold three million copies to customers ahead of release.

Battlefield 3 launched in North America on Tuesday, with a European release tomorrow.
