New Titanfall Games Coming from EA; Showing Six Games in Development at E3 and More
Electronic Arts just released its latest earnings report where it announced a net revenue of $4,012 million, and as part of the slides the publisher also detailed its line-up for the upcoming fiscal year.
During the following conference call it was explained that they’re going to show six games currently in development at E3, and that a new publishing deal has been made with Respawn Entertainment to bring “New Titanfall Experiences” in the future to gamers around the world. While the word “sequel” wasn’t uttered during the call, it’s pretty much a given.
That’s also not surprising since the game has sold through 925,000 units in the US on PC and Xbox One in March, and the Xbox 360 version had a “strong start” as well.
As you can see in the table below, there is an unannounced game for PC and consoles scheduled for the fall (Q3), which has been specified to be a “major” one and on new generation consoles (it wasn’t specified if it’ll be only on new generation platforms) during the conference call. We also learned that it’ll be announced at E3 and that Electronic Arts is “Very very excited about it.”
The table also lists an unnamed golf title for the winter (Q4), which will probably replace the Tiger Woods PGA Tour series.
Finally, it was also said that more about the upcoming Star Wars: Battlefront is going to be shown at E3. The Frostbite 3 engine is allowing the team to drive innovation and high quality and development is “coming along very well,” even if there’s still a lot of work to do.
As for the title coming next fall, there are various possibilities. Electronic Arts declined comment on whether it’s a sequel or a new IP and just mentioned that it’s going to use Frostbite 3, so it could be a new Battlefield, but your guess is as good as mine there.
Update: Respawn Entertainment co-founder Vince Zampella left a comment on Twitter about the new Titanfall deal:
Looks like the cat is out of the bag! “New Titanfall experiences” await you in the future! Excited at the opportunity! This is gonna be fun.
