Blake Jorgensen, EA’s Chief Financial Officer, has revealed at the Bank of America Merrill Lynch Global Technology Conference that Titanfall 2 and Battlefield 1 will launch between three weeks of each other.
Unfortunately, Jorgensen did not state whether or not this would be before or after Battlefield 1 launches, but these quotes from VideoGamer.com seem to suggest it will be after: ”We've always gone head-to-head with Call of Duty so we're not uncomfortable with that,” says Jorgensen “and essentially we're kinda coming from both sides now in the quarter. So we're pretty excited about it."
Judging by that statement, this means Titanfall 2 will be released either between September 30th and November 11th. Not only will Titanfall 2 be competing with EA’s own title Battlefield 1, it may also go up against Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. With EA releasing two of their biggest titles in the same timeframe right by the launch of a Call of Duty title, EA will be hoping to capitalise on the negative press Infinite Warfare is receiving by drawing attention to their games.
Battlefield 1 is scheduled to launch on October 21st for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
