EA CEO discusses the importance of Titanfall and Respawn.
Respawn Entertainment’s Titanfall 2 didn’t exactly live up to sales expectations, especially since it released on more platforms than the original and had a lot more to offer. Despite this, EA isn’t viewing it as a disaster.
In a recent earnings call following its Q3 financial report, CEO Andrew Wilson stated that, “We’re not seeing it as underperformance at this juncture. What we have demonstrated as an organisation is that with great games, we can sell them for many months and often many years.” Battlefield 4, for example, continues to sell well many year later.
Wilson noted that, “So, the way we think about Titanfall is that we have what is one of the best games of this year, and certainly one of the best games in this generation of consoles.
“And we’ve got a development team who have unbelievable pedigree and a commitment to continue to support the community, and we expect to continue to grow that community through the coming fiscal year.”
Titanfall 2 will continue to receive new content with the Live Fire mode arriving in February and the Colony remake due in March.
