More Titanfall experiences on the way, courtesy of EA
EA signs a new publishing deal with developer Respawn and reveals sales of the first game.
During a conference call with investors this afternoon, Electronic Arts announced Titanfall sales figures and revealed it has extended its deal with Respawn Entertainment to continue publishing future games in the series.
"We're also excited to announce that EA is continuing its partnership with Vince Zampella and the Respawn Entertainment team," EA announced today. "Through a new publishing agreement, we'll be working with Respawn to bring new Titanfall experiences to players worldwide."
No further details were shared regarding future plans for Titanfall, including whether it will continue to be an Xbox exclusive on consoles.
While it shouldn't come as a surprise that the Titanfall franchise will see more games released, EA's deal with Respawn didn't guarantee that it would continue on as the series' publisher in the future. It was reported in March that EA had secured the rights to publish Titanfall 2 as part of a deal that was contingent upon strong sales of the first game.
As for sales numbers, EA COO Peter Moore announced that NPD figures show Titanfall sold 925,000 units at retail through the end of March. NPD figures only account for physical sales in the United States, so that doesn't represent worldwide sales figures, nor does it include any sales of the digital version. The Xbox 360 version didn't release until April 8, so its sales were also not included, but Moore described it as being "off to a great start as well".
