Titanfall 2

Recommended Posts

TITANFALL 2 SALES ARE NO WAY NEAR AS STRONG AS EA HOPED

 

For many people the announcement that Titanfall 2 was even being made, was somewhat of a surprise. Although the original was initially popular, it fell off very, very quickly, with nothing like the staying power of more established shooter franchises. But hey, EA and developer Respawn ploughed on any way and released, by all measures, a pretty decent shooter once again.

 

But once again, it's failing to meet expectations.

 

Although reports are still a little scattered right now, our first indication things weren't going to plan was the UK's physical sales chart. Although digital counts for a much larger proportion of sales than it did in previous years, Titanfall 2 still didn't manage to meet the same physical sales as it did with the original game.

 

Financial services and investment banking firm Cowen, also announced that it had downgraded EA share quality due to expected poor sales of Titanfall 2. Initially slated by EA to sell as many as nine million copies, the now revised estimate is closer to six million. While hardly a failure, that would be substantially less impressive than it was planned for.

Failed to beat sales of first game in UK

Also Xbox One version outsells PS4 version in UK with 57% sales on XboxOne.

 

Bringing it to PS4 didn't help them much lol

:lol: kuch zyada ho gaya? Hajmola ka le.

Respawn is already working on Star Wars game now. So, yes I don't think EA will fund TF again as twice it failed to hit their desired sales mark

I hope people will STFU now about bringing new IPs and new ideas while they go on and preorder next BF/CoD etc in hoards.

Battlefield? Battlefield players never liked Titanfall.

 

Titanfall = COD fans.

New IPs shouldnt be released against already established franchises.

Ill get it during a sale or something to play the SP.

Same here. Expect 70% off during winter sale as sales are worst than TF1.

^ That is just brilliant. I am sure Zampella and West must be getting that feeling of déjà vu.

West is not there anymore. He left Respawn last year.

EA arent the only ones to blame. The beta was a disaster and almost certainly hurt the game massively.

Zero marketing for TF2. First game received massive marketing push from MS, but this time there was hardly any kind of marketing for TF2 from EA or MS.

 

 

 

 

There's a dedicated store tab for BF1 on Xbox store and PSN store, but nothing for TF2.

 

EA wants TF2 to fail coz they want Respawn to work on Star wars games forever lol

Yes. EA who are taking 70% of the money from sales of Titanfall want Titanfall to fail. Because of a game that isnt even close to releasing for another 3 years.

 

People like you are the reason why there is an anti vaccine movement, flat earth conspiracy, 9-11 truthers etc etc. :doh:

 

Edit Just for shits and giggles-

 

EA planning on publishing more Titanfall games for "many, many years to come"

 

"I think one thing to remember, it gets lost I think on a big AAA title like Titanfall. We are working with Respawn to build a franchise. This is something that we plan to be working with them on for many, many years to come, and there's huge opportunity inside of that franchise to continue to expand it. And so part of the strategy of building a franchise is you have a long view. You think about the business differently than you might an existing franchise like a FIFA or a Madden. And what that means is we're looking for ways to not fragment the player base early, but to include as everybody as possible and as we can to continue to build that franchise. We think that's the right strategy for a product like Titanfall. And more to come as we learn more, but that's the reason that we chose to go the route we went."
