Since it was first confirmed last year, we’ve heard almost nothing about Titanfall 2 besides the fact that, you know, it exists. We’re still not much further forward now, but EA has today announced it’ll release before the end of fiscal year 2017 (which runs until March 31).
There’s so many big games on the horizon - our list of upcoming PC games is struggling to keep up!
During their third quarter earnings call, EA also said Mass Effect: Andromeda and a new Battlefield will release in the same time period, which runs from April 1, 2016 until March 31, 2017. Whereas both of these games are actually expected to release at some stage in the last quarter of this year, when exactly Titanfall 2 will land remains a mystery.
"You should assume that a Battlefield will come typically in the third quarter, when we normally have it," said EA's CFO Blake Jorgensen during the call. "We're not yet announcing when Titanfall or Mass Effect Andromeda will come, but you should assume that's in the back half of the year as well because the second quarter [July-September] is so dominated by our sports titles."
According to Gamespot, EA’s CEO Andrew Wilson also mentioned during the conference call that he has "great faith in [Respawn] to build a spectacular game", and that he’s seen bits of Titanfall’s successor and “it’s looking fantastic”.
It’s early days yet, but do you think we’ll be sticking all three of these on our letters to Santa? Or is that just wishful thinking on my part?
