A few mech-happy folks might have been hoping thatwould release Titanfall 2 this year – unfortunately they'll have to wait to get their next fix of Titan vs. Titan action.
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.
