Electronic Arts have this week spoken out about the future of Titanfall, and it appears the publisher is committing to the franchise for the coming years ahead.
With Titanfall 2 launching last week, the sequel has been met with both high praise and enthusiasm. However despite the positive nature surround the release, sales have so far struggled within the first week. This hasn’t stopped EA from talking about the future of the series after an abundance of questions at an investor meeting with the company last night.
Blake Jorgensen and Andrew Wilson of EA were reportedly asked several times on Titanfall 2’s performance and the reasoning for launching it mid way between Battlefield 1 and Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. Despite this, it appears there will be no re-evaluation of the franchise. Wilson said; ‘The expectation is that Respawn will continue to support and grow the Titanfall community through Titanfall 2, and over time we’ll work out what the right cadence for next version of Titanfall is and/or any other titles they’re working on.’
Jorgensen continued to state that relationships between EA and Respawn will continue with the aim of building a solid franchise. ‘Titanfall is something that we plan to be working with them on for many, many years to come, and there’s huge opportunity inside of that franchise to continue to expand it. Part of the strategy of building a franchise is you have a long view.’
EA did not give any sales figures for the sequel. However they did state that the belief is that Titanfall and Battlefield offer two differing styles of FPS gameplay such as the ‘fast, fluid kinetic gameplay’ of Titanfall to Battlefields more strategic approach.
Regardless of how well Titanfall performs now, it is a series that we can expect to develop further over the coming years. Are you excited for more Titan action? Will you be picking up Titanfall 2? Be sure to shout out below.
