EA “Committed” to the Relationship With Respawn Despite Lower than Expected Titanfall 2 Sales
While Titanfall 2 sold less copies than expected, Electronic Arts is still committed to the game and its relationship with Respawn Entertainment.
During Electronic Arts’ quarterly financial conference call, Chief Executive Officer Andrew Wilson talked about the relationship with Titanfall 2 developer Respawn Entertainment.
Wilson explained that the company has “a great relationship” with Respawn Entertainment. They’re “very excited about Titanfall 2” and they think that it’s going to sell for a really long time. It’s one of the highest rated shooters of the generation, with many people “playing the game and having a great time.”
Wilson promised that Electronic Arts “remains committed” to the relationship with Respawn and remains committed to the Titanfall franchise, and look forward to do a lot more with Titanfall 2 in the years to come.
Wilson also added that Titanfall 2 selling less than expected is not seen as underperformance at this junction, as great games can sell for many months and even many years. According to him, Respawn is a development team with “unbelievable pedigree” and a commitment to continue to support the community, so Electronic Arts expects to continue to grow that community through fiscal year 2018.
