Titanfall 2 Release Date is Around Battlefield 1 and Infinite Warfare

When Titanfall 2 was announced in early April, there was a large amount of excitement not only because of the prospect of a new and better sequel, but also Titans that had swords and could wall-run much like your player. Now, the Titanfall 2 release date has been roughly ballparked to be somewhere between October and December.

Titanfall 2 will have a large amount of very stiff competition, however. That period of release is in the same period of time as two other highly-anticipated and very popular first-person shooter games: Battlefield One, and Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. With such a crowded period of release for first-person shooters, there’s no telling who will come out on first.

The very first Titanfall game came out in 2011, and released in March, away from many major releases, which contributed to its success. With it being moved to the holiday season (possibly to capitalize on the Christmas shopping season where video game consoles are often a popular gift) it might have doomed itself.

However, there is hope for it; Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’s announcement trailer has gotten a record-breaking amount of dislikes on YouTube, possibly indicating that it will have a poor showing when it releases in November. If it does, there’s a chance that Titanfall 2 may be able to pull away some players from it.

On the other hand, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare will be shipping with a remastered version of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare.

Hopefully, with a greater emphasis on story, 90 people working on it instead of 65, and new game mechanics, the Titanfall 2 release date won’t work against it and will instead be able to give a good showing even when it’s up against a pair of FPS giants for the holiday season. We’ll just have to see how everything works out at the end of the year.
