Despite Titanfall 2 being a critical hit, the game could not manage to sell well, at least not according to EA’s expectations. Now EA has admitted that Titanfall 2 sales were not up to the company’s expectations.

Speaking during EA’s earnings call, EA CFO Blake Jorgensen said that the Titanfall 2 sales were less than what the company was expecting. However, he did not share any specific sales number for the title.

EA CEO Andrew Wilson added that the company has a very good relation with the game’s developer Respawn Entertainment and said that EA anticipates that Titanfall 2 will sell for a long time due to its high quality.

According to industry analyst, Titanfall 2 sales suffered due to Call Of Duty Infinite Warfare. According to Michael Pachter, things could have been handled far better if EA had just moved the game to another release slot instead of sandwiching it between two FPS juggernauts. He added that Call Of Duty Infinite Warfare is the reason why the sales for Battlefield 1 and Titanfall 2 suffered.

I think that launching them a week apart means that the two games are cannibalizing one another, and that Call of Duty will cannibalize both. So I think it’s tough- it’s hard to do it. Very few players are going to do all three.

He also said that he is not sure why EA did that but thinks that EA wanted Titanfall to sell pretty well and it might have if they had launched the game in February.

Titanfall 2 is a first-person action shooter developed by Respawn Entertainment for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
