As part of an earnings call today, Electronic Arts CFO Blake Jorgensen announced that Titanfall 2 is not going to be released anytime soon. Responding to an analyst's question, Jorgensen said you shouldn't expect to see Titanfall 2 until EA's fiscal year 2017.

No Caption Provided

That means Titanfall 2 is due to launch sometime between April 1, 2016 and March 31, 2017.

After lots of rumors, developer Respawn Entertainment co-founder Vince Zampella in March confirmed 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.

I can't wait for Titanfall 2. It's like Call of Duty for dummy's. Since I suck at COD, I love playing Titanfall. I really hope they either get rid of the smart pistol in 2 or make it a side arm. I hate all the little kids that rack up kills with an auto aiming gun.

A fiscal year is the year where it starts. So fiscal year 2017 will start in 2017 not 2016. If what I inferred from Eddie, their fiscal year runs April to March, then their 2017 fiscal is April 2017 to March 2018. April 2016 to March 2017 is their 2016 fiscal year. So the game will not be out until 2017 which is when it should be released anyway. If we are to see it early next year then we should already be seeing some form of gameplay or screen shots other than words and hearsay about release and a game. Yeah don't expect this until 2017.

I think I'll pass. After about 30 matches I was pretty much done with Titanfall. There's really no story, no emotional connection. I do admit that it was most certainly THE BEST multiplayer game I've played, but it just didn't have enough incentive for me to continue on grinding out more matches.

Titanfall is such a great game. One of the few games that actually lived up to its hype. Can't wait for another one.

People who say it didn't live up to the hype weren't paying attention when the team explained what they planned to deliver. Their expectations were not supported by the marketing.

Destiny is the game you can blame that on.

Titanfall was no less than what Respawn and EA promised it would be. And they did a fantastic job of supporting it over the last year. I'm excited for whatever is next.

That is fine with me I wouldn't want this game to turn into an annual thing like pre 3 dev cycle COD.

@ghost140: Totally agreed. The first one was excellent fun, and somewhat changed the entire FPS genre for the better with its freeform movement, asynchronous combat styles, and "there's a counter for EVERYTHING" design.


So I hope they take their time and get it right.

Will they have learned from their first titanfail? my guess people wont be so jumpy to throw money at a game they got burned by the first time.

@blackothh: Who exactly got burned? Microsoft's servers were a giant pain for the first several days, but that's about it.

@Pyrosa@blackothh: There were people who spent $90 on this game and it's dlc only to turn around and have it given away for free about 3 months later.

Well there is no point in releasing a new Titanfall game now; we're getting CODfall anyways.

Give me lots of robots and a kickarse campaign where I get to fight those dinosaurs in the background. Screw the pilots. Got enough generic headshot shooters already. Not enough robots.

@Barighm: 100% agreed -- pilot-only maps was clearly a result of some product manager or executive being nervous and "playing it safe."

GIVE US INTERACTIVE/ATTACKING/RIDE-ABLE MONSTERS!!!

I hope it's exclusive to the xone and pc again, don't want that garbage finding its way into any unsuspecting Sony consoles

@translucent17: I believe it has already been confirmed that Titanfall 2 will by multiplatform and that's ok.

Nobody is interested in buying this game even for $10. I would give a shot if it would be free.

Can't you wait till 2017? I don't want to be reminded of how bad 2014 was so soon.

As much as I love me some Source Engine goodness, I hope they're building a new engine from the ground up so we can see this franchise really take off. The biggest problem with TF1 was that at it's best it felt like unfulfilled potential, lots of great ideas but they never really went anywhere.
Source 2 Titanfall 2...there's an impossibly optimistic thought

Hopefully we see gameplay at E3 this year.

@tommynj: Can almost be pretty sure it won't even get mentioned, EA will only want to show content of games with release schedules within the next 6 months roughly. E3 is an advertising convention for publishers.

why make a sequel? oh i forgot, we are the prisoners of hope generation of gamers, HOPEFULLY this one will be better, if not, HOPEFULLY it will be patched soon, if not, HOPEFULLY titanfall 3 will be better etc etc etc.

@hotwog21: Titanfall is great, so if the next one is better that's great. And it doesn't need to be patched.

I am constantly playing TF and it's one of the few games that I can't wait for the sequal. TF has a great foundation and I can't see how they flesh it out. So much opportunity to improve such an already solid game. P.S. I'm all about multiplayer so I'm okay with lack of campaign
