EA is confident that its Battlefield and Titanfall IPs will not end up harming one another in the battle for players. The company believes the series offer something unique for a specific group of gamers and can comfortably co-exist on the same platforms. It's a fear some have due to both games targeting audiences within the first-person shooter category.
As reported by VideoGamer, EA CEO Andrew Wilson, commented on the potential issue during a company earnings call:
EA is expected to release both Battlefield 1 and Titanfall 2 during the third quarter with the former launching first on October 21. As VideoGamer rightfully points out, EA also has to worry about competitor titles like Gears of War 4, Call of Duty and other AAA games within the same genre.
We'll hopefully have more details on Battlefield and Titanfall at E3.
