EA Rushing Titanfall? “We’re Not Doing That At All” Says EA Games Label Boss
Patrick Söderlund addresses concerns of Titanfall being rushed.
Titanfall will be heading to Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC on March 11th 2014 in North America and March 14th in North America. Given how the game only had its reveal at this year’s E3, with information not exactly pouring out of the developer, there has been concerns that its release may be too soon.
However, responding to Credit Suisse’s Stephen Ju during a question and answer session with analysts about whether the game’s development was being rushed and whether EA would ensure its quality by March 2014, EA Games Label boss Patrick Söderlund stated, “So on the quality side, and if we’re rushing a game, I would say no, we’re not doing that at all.
“This is a very experienced, seasoned team, one of the best in the industry. They’ve got a bunch of great games under their belt. We have been monitoring and working with them for a long time. This has been a game that’s been in development for multiple years. And all the data that we have in front of us suggest that this game will not only be highly rated, but very highly rated. So I feel better than I would normally feel at this time, on a game like this.”
In other news, Respawn Entertainment has confirmed that Titanfall will be exclusive to the Xbox platforms, but that future games in the series will come to other consoles.
