EA’s chief financial officer Blake Jorgensen revealed that Titanfall 2 will be released within three weeks of Battlefield 1 (which will be released on October 21.
During the 2016 Global Technology Conference, he made the announcement. And while he didn’t clarify if he meant before or after Battlefield 1, he strongly suggested that it will be the latter.
"We've always gone head-to-head with Call of Duty and so we're not uncomfortable with that, and essentially we're kinda coming from both sides now in the quarter,” he said. “So we’re pretty excited about it.”
Call of Duty launches on November 4. With Battlefield 1 taking on a historic World War 1 setting, Titanfall 2 would go toe-to-toe with Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare on a more futuristic landscape.
EA CEO Andrew Wilson has said that he’s not concerned that Battlefield 1 and Titanfall 2 will cannibalise each other’s sales as they “fulfil different gameplay motivations.”
"There is a very broad and diverse set of players who play games in that category who are looking to fulfil different gameplay motivations," he said. "Some people play very quick play, some people more strategic play, and some people want both in different context.”
“The result of that is, we feel like we actually have a really strong position to deliver the broadest set of gameplay mechanics as it relates to first-person shooter genre across the two titles, and feel very confident that we are well-positioned to do very well in that category in the year."
Expect to hear an official release date for Titanfall 2 at EA’s E3 conference.
