Titanfall 2 is scheduled to be released this fall, publisher Electronic Arts announced today.
In a slide presentation for its 2017 fiscal year, EA listed Titanfall 2 for a launch in its fiscal third quarter, which runs from October through December 2016. That means the publisher expects developer Respawn Entertainment to ship Titanfall 2 in the same window that EA DICE will launch another first-person shooter, Battlefield 1. EA announced Battlefield 1 last week with a release date of Oct. 21.
During an investor call today, EA CEO Andrew Wilson downplayed any possibility that the two games will cannibalize each other, calling the first-person shooter genre "a giant category in our industry."
Titanfall 2 is in development on PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One. Respawn and EA released a teaser trailer last month, and said they would offer more details on the game at EA Play, the publisher's pre-E3 2016 press briefing.
