During an investor call EA’s Andrew Wilson defended releasing Titanfall 2 just a week after Battlefield 1, suggesting that there are three types of gamers. Battlefield 1 players like “big strategic game play”, Titanfall 2 players like “fast, fluid, kinetic gameplay” and the third type likes both.
I would suggest there are just two types, the first likes running around in first person and shooting people in the face, and the second can only afford one full price game every now and then and was never going to by two very similar games in quick succession. But hey, what do I know.
The good news is that despite Titanfall 2 failing to match it’s predecessors sales, EA are firmly behind the game and will continue to support the franchise.
“We are working with Respawn to build a franchise,” said EA’s Blake Jorgensen. “This is something that we plan to be working with them on for many, many years to come, and there’s huge opportunity inside of that franchise to continue to expand it. And so part of the strategy of building a franchise is you have a long view.”
“There is still a lot of things that they’ll be putting into [Titanfall 2] for the foreseeable future,” added Andrew.
