EA has confirmed that a new Titanfall game is on the way. We’ve known almost since right after Titanfall launched in 2014 that a sequel was in the works. EA now affirms when we might be playing.
On its third quarter earnings call, the company says that its partnership Respawn remains intact. The next Titanfall game will be out in the next year.
What isn’t entirely clear is what that game will look like. EA confirms that a “new Titanfall experience” will be out in fiscal year 2017 (ending March 31, 2017). Later in the call, EA included Mass Effect in its lineup for the second half of the year.
Titanfall will join Battlefield in the next fiscal year, filling out EA’s shooter portfolio. With the inclusion of Star Wars Battlefront paid DLC starting in March, the publisher’s offerings are flush in the genre.
While there’s a dearth of detail around the next Titanfall game, EA’s next fiscal year is starting to come into focus slowly. The important thing to note is that neither Titanfall or Mass Effect are confirmed for calendar 2016. We might not see them until the quarter that runs from January 1 through March 31, 2016.
