We all know how Battlefield 4 went down; it was sprawling with launch issues all over. Naturally, that raises doubts in the minds of everyone about the future of EA’s next shooter.
The executives were pretty reassuring at EA’s Fiscal 2014 Third Quarter Earnings Call; they believe that the problems faced by Battlefield 4 were unique to the project. They insisted that the learning curve faced by them during the hassles of its launch have left them much more informed and prepared to tackle what they might face in the case of Titanfall.
EA Games executive vice president Patrick Söderlund, has reassured that there is nothing to worry about with Titanfall – let us hope he is right:
“The challenge that we’ve faced with Battlefield 4 were different from anything that we’ve seen before with other games. There were different issues that only manifest its scale in the post-launch live environment. We’re taking multiple steps to evaluate what occurred and incorporate those learnings into our development process for future products, so we don’t experience the same problems again.”
They also believe that the case of Battlefield had certain other elements that have been taken care of now. The game was being released on two new consoles that had not been experienced with before and it was a complex project in itself. Now they have also put architecture in place that will allow for rapid updates to the game.
Titanfall is bound to hit the racks on March 11, 2014 in North America while the EU and Australia will see the game on March 13 – UK and New Zealand join in a day later.
