Titanfall 2 Launching Before the End of 2016
The PS4, Xbox One, and PC shooter will be out in a matter of months.
Titanfall 2 will be out by the end of the year, Electronic Arts announced today.
As part of its latest earning report, EA revealed Titanfall 2 is scheduled for a fiscal Q3 release. That period spans from October 2016 through the end of December 2016.
Keep in mind another major EA shooter--Battlefield 1--is scheduled for release on October 21. EA presumably would want to offer some space between the two games (not to mention Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare in November), making a late November or December release seem likely, but that's merely speculation at this point.
During a conference call with investors today, EA CEO Andrew Wilson was asked about the close proximity of Battlefield 1 and Titanfall 2's releases.
"This is a giant category in our industry--[a] $4.5 billion category," he said. "There's a very broad and diverse set of players who play games in that category who are looking to fulfill different gameplay motivations. Some people play very quick-play, or something with more strategic play; some people want both in different contexts.
"The result of that is that we feel we actually have a really strong position to deliver the broadest set of gameplay mechanics as it relates to [the] first-person shooter genre across the two titles and feel very confident that we are well-positioned to do very well in that category in the year. Certainly you see the reception around Battlefield 1; we feel very good about that. The energy around Titanfall 2 is also building very nicely. We look forward to showing you more of both of those titles at EA Play in June.
Previously, EA had only said that Titanfall 2 would be out during the period that runs from October 2016 through March 2017 along with the new Battlefield and Mass Effect games. Earlier today, EA announced Mass Effect: Andromeda is now due out in early 2017.
Unlike the first game, Titanfall 2 will be released on PS4 in addition to Xbox One and PC.
