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.
