While Titanfall 2 performed below EA’s expectations, it “still sold very well”

Titanfall 2 didn’t meet EA’s expectations, but “still sold very well,” according to the company’s CFO, Blake Jorgunsen. In an earnings call yesterday, executives and investors briefly discussed the game’s financial results.

Titanfall 2 is one of the best FPS games on PC.

EA say that revenue over Q3 2017 will be 3% lower than the same period last year. When asked why this was by an investor, Jorgunsen said that this year’s releases aren’t expected to hold up to the enormous success of Battlefield 1.

Jorgunsen also goes on to say that “we had Titanfall [2], which while it didn’t meet our original expectation, still sold very well.” Those expectations were originally up to around ten million copies, three million more than its predecessor managed. But industry analysts has less faith, expecting sales in the region of five or six million.

Titanfall developer Respawn’s CEO Vince Zampella told Gamespot that a potential reason for the game selling fewer copies than anticipated may have stemmed from a cramped release window and “aggressive” pricing. Whatever the reason, EA seem to have confidence in Respawn and Titanfall 2, saying they’ll continue to support the game “for many, many years.”
