Next Titanfall Game "Looking Fantastic," EA CEO Says
EA CEO Andrew Wilson says company has "great faith in [Respawn] to build a spectacular game."
Respawn Entertainment's next Titanfall game is coming along nicely, according to Electronic Arts CEO Andrew Wilson. Speaking during a post-earnings financial call today, Wilson said he has seen the game and reported that "it's looking fantastic," though he didn't share any specifics about what he saw.
He went on to say that EA has "great faith in [Respawn] to build a spectacular game," noting that more details on this game--which has not even been officially announced yet--will be shared in the months ahead.
Wilson's comments came in response to an analyst's question regarding the nature of EA's publishing arrangement with Respawn for the next Titanfall game. Wilson said it's too early to dig into specifics.
It's possible that EA will talk more about the next Titanfall game during its just-announced EA Play event at E3 this year in June, though this has not been confirmed.
The next Titanfall game is scheduled to launch during EA's fiscal year 2017, a point that was reiterated during EA's call today. That means Titanfall 2 is due to launch sometime between April 1, 2016 and March 31, 2017.
After lots of rumors, Respawn co-founder Vince Zampella confirmed in March 2014 that Titanfall 2 was in development. The original game was released only for Xbox consoles and PC, but the sequel is expected to be a multiplatform title, Zampella said.
