EA has high hopes for Respawn’s first game.
Electronic Arts’ third quarter fiscal year financial results, ending on December 31st 2013, are out and it’s been revealed that Respawn Entertainment’s TitanFall will be the “most anticipated” game for March. Work on the game seems to be complete with Respawn polishing it and applying the finishing touch before release. Interestingly, The Sims 4 has now been moved forward from its release date this quarter to account for TitanFall’s costs.
As of now, no sales estimates have been provided considering its limited to Xbox platforms and PC. There’s also the matter of it dropping during the end of this quarter. However, EA COO Peter Moore indicated that both games will be able to exist together without any trouble.
Finally, the game will have enough “positive impact” during FY 2015 since DLC is currently in development. FY 2015 begins on April 1st, so expect an announcement for DLC shortly before that and release shortly afterwards.
TitanFall is out on March 11th in North America and March 14th in UK for Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC.
