In an EA investors call that took place yesterday, an official from the company revealed that the sequel probably won't make the fiscal year 2016; “Your assumption should be 17,” said CFO Blake Jorgensen.
The 2017 fiscal year takes place from April 2016 to March 2017. That release schedule would give Titanfall 2 some precious breathing space away from, which drops this November and is likely to be EA's big-hitting shooter for a reasonable period. Provided it's good, of course.
Respawn CEO Vince Zampella confirmed that a sequel was in development, and floated the idea of a fee map model, saying; “having the maps like that in packs, it does split the community and it makes it harder for matchmaking, it's messy. Yeah. I don't know we won't do it again, I can't say that for sure, but the idea would be to do something different."
Depending on whether we see Titanfall atthis year, I'd imagine late 2016 or early 2017 would be a likely candidate for its eventual release date. But, much like Jon Snow, I know nothing, so take that with a pinch of salt.
