Titanfall 2 developers are not happy about EA and how it reportedly pitted their game against COD: Infinite Warfare. Will this affect the chances of a future Titanfall 3 coming up in the near future?
Titanfall 2, Battlefield 1 And COD: Infinite Warfare
Titanfall 2 generally got a good review from players. However, the amount of game copies sold was not as great when compared to the first Titanfall game. Industry observers believed that the low sales volume is due to its almost same release date as Battlefield 1.
EA is the publisher for both games but it owns Battlefield 1 while Titanfall 2 was developed by Respawn Entertainment. Critics also think that Titanfall 2 was also used as a counter to Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. Both games feature a sci-fi game environment while Battlefield 1 is set in World War 1 setting.
Interview With Respawn CEO Vince Zampella
Glixel interviewed Respawn CEO Vince Zampella about his thoughts about the recent release of Titanfall 2. He said he was concerned when EA decided to release both their games and Battlefield 1 at almost the same time. Zampella hinted that he would have been comfortable if Titanfall 2 was released a few months later.
Interestingly, Zampella once worked for Infinity Ward for a long time. He was also heavily involved in the development of the Call of Duty franchise. The Respawn CEO admitted that he "felt odd" when his former company repack and change the COD storyline. Zampella said that he plans to play COD: Infinite Warfare and Modern Warfare Remastered.
Titanfall 3 Coming Up?
Zampella admits that an upcoming third Titanfall installment is still up in the air. He is happy though about the glowing reviews about the game. While sales are still slowly coming in the developer promise more added storyline and features to the game. Meanwhile, an EA publicist insists that the game publisher is "committed" to the Titanfall franchise.
