Titanfall


 

Titanfall 2 sales were lower than expected, as EA has finally admitted.

“We sold less Titanfall 2 than we expected and we sold more Battlefield 1 than we expected,” EA executive Blake Jorgensen explained in a recent earnings call.

According to one analyst firm, the game’s release date—October 28th—may have been part of the problem, since it meant Titanfall 2 had to compete with Battlefield 1 the week before and Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare the week after.

CEO Andrew Wilson, though, was more positive, saying that the game has potential to keep selling copies over its lifetime.

“We’re very excited about Titanfall 2,” Wilson said. “We think that game’s going to sell for a really long time. As we said in our prepared remarks, it’s one of the highest-rated shooters of the generation. It’s also got some of the highest NPS scores across our portfolio. So, people playing the game, they’re having a great time. We remain committed to that relationship. We remain committed to Titanfall. And we look forward to doing a lot more Titanfall 2 over the year to come.”

Later in the report, EA added that player satisfaction with Titanfall 2 is “among the highest” of all games in the publisher’s portfolio.

Though the Titanfall mobile game was cancelled a few weeks ago, EA revealed that there are still some “long-term plans” in the works for the series.
