Some people (investors) worried that EA could be cannibalising it’s sales by having its two big holiday titles this year be online focused FPS shooters in Battlefield 1 and Titanfall 2. At the very least, you’d imagine that they would come out with some distance between each other.
Well, it appears EA aren’t worried at all, as it looks like both games are coming out very close to each other. According to DualShockers, EA CFO Blake Jorgensen said at the Bank of America Merrill Lynch 2016 Global Technology Conference that the games would be out within three weeks of each other. It wasn’t said which three weeks or which would be first.
It’s an interesting strategy and EA are betting big on the two shooters attracting different audiences, or attracting an audience that will buy two FPSs in such a short time. It will be really interesting to see how this works, because it’s going against every believed convention. Let’s see.
