This week, Electronic Arts has shared with its investors the financial breakdown of its first fiscal quarter, and as usually happens in these cases, the speech includes the odd clue about the future of the company. If we have already told you that the parents of FIFA have an interest in buying new studios, perhaps in reference to Warner Bros; In the same context, a comment about a possible new Titanfall also appears , although we warn you that it is not conclusive.
Speaking precisely about buying new studios, CFO Blake Jorgensen mentioned to Respawn Entertainment, the team currently working with Apex Legends: “We were able to bring them into the fold and give them incredible support and it was all driven by the fact that they have incredible talent. It wasn’t about Titanfall – no offense to Titanfall. It’s an amazing game and maybe you’ll see Titanfall sometime down the road. But it was really about the team.”
As you can see, the possible new Titanfall is only mentioned in passing, but precisely the spontaneity of the matter also helps us understand EA’s perspective on this IP. Titanfall 2 may not have had great sales at the time, perhaps because it was launched among other established shooters such as Battlefield and Call of Duty, but it is definitely one of the most beloved series that the publisher can work with today. , and the success of Apex Legends has only accentuated fan hunger for new Titanfalls.
How viable is the idea of releasing a new episode? Just as a point, when Titanfall 2 arrived on Steam this summer, it slipped into the top 100 of the platform despite its age, even surpassing the activity figures of Battlefield V and Star Wars Battlefront 2. It does not guarantee anything, of course , but it does demonstrate the interest of the community in seeing news and keeping the saga alive. For now, there is nothing official about it.
