We already knew Battlefield 1 and Titanfall 2 were coming out in the same year, but now we've learned more about how closely to one another they will arrive.

Speaking today at the Bank of America Merrill Lynch 2016 Global Technology Conference, EA CFO Blake Jorgensen said Titanfall 2 will come out around three weeks from when Battlefield 1 debuts, though he didn't say if it would be before or after, according to DualShockers.

No Caption Provided

Battlefield 1 arrives on October 21, which means Titanfall 2 will come out sometime between September 30 and November 11.

Also during the call, Jorgensen reiterated that EA is not worried that launching two FPS games so close to one another will hurt either game's sales. They cater to different types of shooter players, giving EA broad coverage of the FPS space, he said.

Jorgensen also said EA is "not uncomfortable" launching its shooter games against Activision's Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.

For more on both games, check out all of GameSpot's previous coverage at these links: Battlefield 1, Titanfall 2.

Also during the call today, Jorgensen said there was "some debate" internally at EA about Battlefield 1's World War 1 setting.

One of those 2 games will get delayed until Q1 201 7, it's only a matter of time. EA is kidding itself with these release dates.

Loved Titanfall, I hope this one adds a bit more content as I felt the game got stale a lot quicker than say Halo 5.

Meh Titanfall 1 was incredibly boring. Maybe the single player will add to it but I'll wait for reviews.

Is this even safe? What effect will this have on the planet? Have they done the proper studies? It sounds serious.

So in my case personally they're wrong. I'm grabbing Titanfall 2 and gonna wait to play Battlefield 1 when it comes to EA Access.

Battlefield 1 all the way!

I may buy T2 just for the campaign. Beat it 1st week, play a bit of multiplayer, then trade it in.....unless the multiplayer rocks!

Titanfall 2 first so we can have something to play while the teething period of bf1 servers get worked out in a couple months.

BF 1 looks great but I'm not a fan of WWI era weapons so that makes me apprehensive. I'm excited for Titanfall 2 and its SP campaign so I'll pick that up first and probably rent BF 1. I've always got BF 4 if I'm jonesin' for a more realistic military shooter.

@skrilla99: Don't worry they will stretch the reality of WW1 weapons to hilarious extremes. It will play similar to BF3/4.

I feel like I got burned by both bf4 and titanfall the last go around.

From what I've read below, Titan Fall 2 will have single player, sweet! I love mecha fights! What made me lose interest in Titan Fall was that it was online-only (or maybe it had a "Training" mode for offline, but that was about it from what I've heard so far). I don't hate online-only games (they're MMOs, after all), but not everyone has the same darn schedule in life! That, and server maintenances. And since they will get sequels, I wonder for how long they will be supported, so I don't want to buy an online-only game, only for it to be obscured by a sequel.

@kaminobenimizu: not once have I had (okay there was one time for like 30 minutes) an issue with TF servers being down for maintenance or whatnot and I have over 30 days played in the game.

@stewart24: They barely had any problems? Darn, their servers must be rock solid (or maybe the games I hear about are just weird with theirs)!

@johnnyboy787: The normal edition, or the Legacy edition with MW?

@kaminobenimizu: The one that comes with CoD IW with season pass and CoD 4. (99$ on live and PSN)

@7tizz: Wow, that is some real desperation I hear in your voice. Clearly since I don't like mediocre bro shooters I must not play any multiplayer games.

@7tizz: Multiplayer is the most repetitious and boring aspect. Oh man can't wait to play against 12 year olds in the same maps over and over again!

I'm more interested in Titanfall 2 than Battlefield 1. Battlefield has really overstayed its welcome whereas I think Titanfall 2 could learn a lot from the initial game and potentially be one of the best shooters in a while.

@Mogan:But unlike Titanfall's community, Renegade's community lived on for over a decade.

One's a future game and one's a WWI game.

Eh, I'll get both anyway.

Fall is a great and horrible time for gamers. So many games launch with not enough time to play them all meaningfully.

Whether one or the other sees prolonged success or not, they will both limp along for plenty of time with the added DLC, free XP weekends, free maps and all the standard bribery that comes along with online shooters for months to follow. It's not like other online shooters haven't launched within weeks of other online shooters. It's how the industry operates anyways.

RIP Titanfall...

Why would you ever launch near BF1

@rosinmonkekyx17: Two complete different games i will be picking up both and the last Titanfall sold around 7 million so it will do just fine.Hell i still enjoy Titanfall on my XOne it was the shooter we needed that's for sure it was different than whats out there

@flames325: It might do so fine this time :P

BF1 might steal away the attention

@flames325:

It actually sold over 10 million copies! I know, I couldn't believe it either. I hope Titanfall 2 will give CoD a run for its money and shows it how futuristic shooters are done. Everything about the first TF was so much better than what CoD has done the last 5 years or so and now people with a PS4 get to enjoy it as well. Overwatch aside, cause I'm still not sure I'm comfortable calling that a FPS, Titanfall is the best first person shooter I've played since CounterStrike got me hooked somewhere in the early 2000s and I just want others to experience the traversal, the way it manages to make everyone feel important and most of all: the Titans! Cause even after all those hours, I still get an adrenaline boost when entering my Titan.

Both games look interesting to me. But if they are in such a short time frame from one another. I think I'll go with Battlefield.
