E3 2014: EA Says Titanfall Is the Best-Selling Xbox One Game to Date

EA COO Peter Moore says Respawn's multiplayer-focused shooter has sold better than any Xbox One game so far.

Respawn Entertainment's multiplayer-focused shooter Titanfall is the best-selling Xbox One game to date, Electronic Arts COO Peter Moore told Game Informer in an interview today.

"Sales are always going to be inhibited and governed by the install base, but [Titanfall] is attaching incredibly well," Moore said. "Titanfall is the best-selling title on Xbox One lifetime to date."

Moore did not share an official sales tally for Titanfall, but EA previously said the game sold 925,000 units at retail in March alone, though that figure also counts PC sales and only applies to the United States. The Xbox 360 version of Titanfall launched in April.

Part of why Titanfall might be selling so well is because of the $499 Xbox One bundle that includes a copy of the game.

Last month, EA announced that it had reached a deal with Respawn Entertainment to make more Titanfall "experiences." Earlier this week, the Wall Street Journal reported that Titanfall 2 is in the planning stages and will come to the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. This is notable because the first Titanfall was exclusive to the Xbox and PC.

This week at E3, Respawn Entertainment announced new features and functionality for Titanfall, including a Marked for Death mode, as well as titan customization and titan burn cards. For more on Titanfall, check out GameSpot's review.

Look at all the haters talking s h i t!!  LOL you guys make me laugh and yes its mostly sony fans who arent able to get the game..  When Infamous came out and sold the best on ps4 so far did you sit here and say "well its got nothing to compete with since PS4 definitely doesnt have any games"!  Here is a stat for ya, Titanfall got rated better than Infamous by EVERY game site and mag and its only multiplayer.  Now what????  Infamous sucked!!  I absolutely hated that game,,,,

Only decent game on the X1, so not really surprising. Especial as its cross platform. Just thin how many could be sold if it was on PS4. Not that I think I would have got it, just not my cup of tea!

Success is measured in how difficult it was, how the competition looked like and i ask myself: What competition did Titanfall have? Are there any other games out there yet? This early it's easy to claim victory if you've got a solid product.

Really? Wow! I couldn't have guessed that......

The Xbox One just came out and there are hardly any game to play on it. It's like being the most important electron in a hydrogen atom xD

Seems a lot of the haters are confused. They're not comparing anything other than what's on X1 right now.

It's sad how you twits reach deep for arguments about how long the X1 has actually been around or how few games are actually out like MS is trying to lie to you.

As of now. Yes simpletons, right now, that's what "To Date" means, right now Titanfall is the #1 selling X1 game. And rightfully so, it's a great game you're missing out on because you're too busy tr0lling.

Would be way more impressive achievement if there were more than 50 games out for the XBox-1 right now. Mabey they can revisit this claim in a year from now.

And I'm still really enjoying this game. And with new modes coming soon I'll have more to do.

They're still being awfully protective of hard sales data and that's all you really need to know. Clearly the 360 version didn't sell well at all. I knew the CoD dudebros would consider robots nerdy and uncool.

This isn't impressive when the console has only been on the market for 6 months.

Titanfall is a good game, I got like a 100 hours into it but I stopped playing like a month ago and do not think I will play again. The worst part is that I bought the season pass and I haven't even played expedition because this game needs A  LOT  more than maps. It has no replay ability in my opinion

I hate it when they consider bundles as sold games. Ofcourse people flock to the deal

Syphon_Filter2
Syphon_Filter2

Yeah, right. At my cousin store he got more 10 copies people traded it in and sold out only few once and even losing money on them as the price is high.

When you give a game away with a system it sure helps the games sales.

@xrizz1066 If Titanfall is the only decent game on xbox one I guess ps4 doesnt even have a decent game....  LOL

@Gravity_Slave  The only reason why Titanfall is the no.1 game on XOne is because the system have no other killer app to compete with it. Its too early in the system's lifespan. EAs bragging about something that really aint there.

Gravity_Slave

That has nothing to do with it. You're reaching.

Well seeing that Forza 5 sold more than one million I bet this sold 1.5-2 million copies.

It's not that, no one want to play a 6v6 competitive shooter where 3/4 of the enemies are braindead AI bots. Not to mention the general lack of content, this game has no justification for a $60 price point. Any other MP only game that has released on the PC with similar amounts of content (MNC, Nuclear Dawn, Loadout, Tactical Intervention, and several others) have retailed for $15-30. No one with more than half a brain is going to pay full retail for an MP only game with so little content.

@stevhall88 100 hours and not replayable??? woot? thats not even rpg game hours you are talking about, you got your moneys worth man

I hate how people don't get basic economics...they are sold games genius.

They don't give away the games to MS and say "here ya go! Sell more xbox's!"

When you buy the bundle the game is sold. There. Unless you're a total dimwit, I just saved you future embarrassment.

@beuneus12 I hate how they consider Wii Sports as the best selling Wii game. If I had a choice at the time, I would have opted for the console without that tech demo.

Just like I can go to a store and find used copies of Kill Zone, Knack, Mario, or tons of the games. Some people like myself still play the game and hold onto it and some get tired of it and trade it in.

lithus

Odd because I've been to several chain stores and they all told me they haven't had a used copy since April. I was looking for a copy in our spare bedroom.

I personally think you're full of sh*t.

Especially when the bundle is at $450 with Walmart and Bestbuy.

No one is going to have any decent games until 2015. This summer being nearly dead doesn't help anyone on any platform. It usually takes a good year for the game library to flesh out and become worth while.

It's clear that neither of you twits even played Titanfall. You're going on what you read and pure bias.

@lithus Odd so you live in the same area as  Syphon_Filter2 so you have 1st hand knowledge that he is full of crap good sir. Well come to my town there are plenty of new and used copies of TitanFall for you to purchase or am I also full of it.

@Gravity_Slave 

I was just thinking the same thing.

The next "big" AAA title is Destiny from what I can tell, so those interested will have to wait until September on all platforms.

I'll probably take this time to go back and play some older games on PC. Maybe Bioshock Burial at Sea or Farcry 3, I missed both of those.

Gravity_Slave

You're reaching because you're making an issue out of something that is a non-issue.

No one said there are a lot if games on the X1. All they're saying is that as of right now, out of the games that ARE available, Titanfall is the #1 selling game on the X1. That's it, Nothing more. That's how I know...because it's common sense.

It's typical fanboy haters like you looking for even the littlest thing to nit pick against.

Which is pretty decent for a new IP on a few months old console.

Lol by that logic, you can't speak for everyone/everywhere because you don't live in any of the other places either!

Maybe your little hick town has copies because ppl sell them for mossy oak baseball caps and wife beaters. Dumb bitch

I've recently bought a PS3, so I'm going to play all the exclusives till next year.

@Gravity_Slave Says the raging fanboy. Might want to stop acting like everyone here that has voiced their opinion has just collectively run over your favorite Dog.


How are we haters since no one here stated this is MS lying to us (FYI this is a statement made by Activision not MS) or that Sony has better or more games out than XBox1 right now. So how about you man up and get a thicker skin good sir as just like you we are entitled to share our opinions just the same as you are. 


Plus this is a very valid point most here have made. What good does trumpeting the fact that TitanFall is the best selling game on XBox1 when every one knows that both the PS4 & XBox1 have very few titles for us to play. Sounds like Activision is trying to convince us and themselves that making TitanFall an MS Exclusive was a great idea.
