Electronic Arts Extends Publishing Deal with Respawn Entertainment
North American sales for month one of Titanfall also announced...

Electronic Arts has announced that it has agreed an extension to its publishing deal with Titanfall developer Respawn Entertainment yesterday, with the company set to focus on bringing Titanfall sequels to gamers in the future. A statement released by the publisher said:

We're also excited to announce that EA is continuing its partnership with Vince Zampella and the Respawn Entertainment team.Through a new publishing agreement, we'll be working with Respawn to bring new Titanfall experiences to players worldwide.

That online shooter, which launched on Xbox One and PC in March, and Xbox 360 in April, managed to shift 925,000 retail copies in North America alone during its first month of availability, which has obviously impressed EA and ensured that the company took up its option to extend.

It is still unknown as to whether or not the game's follow up, and any titles thereafter, will remain exclusive to Microsoft platforms, or whether it'll make the move to Sony's PlayStation 4, but many have speculated that the exclusivity was simply a sensible way for EA to cover itself should sales not be as high as expected. Given the figures that were announced, however, it could now prove to be the case that multi-platform is the way to go in the future, maximising the total reach of the game.
