EA Thinks ‘Titanall 2’ Will “Probably” End Up Being Multi-platform

Titanfall’s future could very well end up being multi-platform.

Titanfall released exclusively for Xbox consoles (well, and PC) early last year, and even though the game didn’t have the legs that many were hoping it would it will nevertheless be getting a sequel. There have been rumors for many months now that a sequel could potentially end up being a multi-platform game, though any kind of confirmation on that front had been limited.

Now, EA’s CFO Blake Jorgensen has broken the silence on the next game in the series. At the 2015 Technology, Internet & Media Conference he said the following about the series’ future:

“Last year it was on the Xbox only; in the future, we haven’t yet announced, but we’ll probably have another Titanfall game. It will probably be a bigger footprint than just a single platform. I think that’s a huge positive for us.”

Now, in terms of what other consoles Titanfall 2 would end up on, I think in this case that would just be PlayStation 4. While the first game did make an appearance on Xbox 360, I think by the point 2 comes around it will be current-gen only for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. Let’s be real – It’s definitely not going to end up on Wii U.

I personally am a bit neutral on the news, more for the fact that I lost interest in the game not long after it launched. It’s a solid shooter, but it just doesn’t have the depth in gameplay modes or single-player at all to keep me coming back.

Titanfall is developed by Respawn Entertainment and launched on Xbox One and PC on March 11th. The Xbox 360 port of the game was handled by Bluepoint Games.

EA Reveals That ‘Dragon Age: Inquisition’ Was Most Successful Launch Ever For BioWare

Dragon Age: Inquisition was BioWare’s biggest launch ever, just don’t ask EA for any concrete numbers.

BioWare had to endure some mixed responses from fans and critics alike over the past couple of years, as both Dragon Age II and Mass Effect 3 did not live up to expectations. Whether it was Dragon Age II dumbing down the original game’s epic formula or Mass Effect 3 offering ending choices that everyone hated, each game did something that rubbed a lot of people the wrong way.

Which is why it’s great to hear that Dragon Age: Inquisition was not only loved by fans and critics alike, but also sold extremely well. Publisher EA has just stated in their Financial Release that Inquisition was the most successful launch in BioWare’s history, which far exceeded the publishers estimated sales for the game.

Unfortunately, the publisher did not release any concrete sales numbers, so we’re more or less taking their word for it at this point. This is a time where I would believe them, though, as Dragon Age: Inquisition was critically-acclaimed, won several game of the year awards and is still being played by a whole bunch of people to this very day.

The Final ‘Dragon Age: Inquisition’ Trailer Talks Of Choice & Consequence

BioWare has been releasing trailers that go into detail about various aspects of their upcoming RPG, Dragon Age: Inquisition. They have just released a final video that talks about the consequences of the choices that the player will make throughout the course of the game. Just like in all the great Bioware RPGs, the choices that you make will have a profound impact on the overall narrative.

Check out the Choice & Consequence trailer for Dragon Age: Inquisition below. 

Dragon Age: Inquisition is developed by Bioware and published by EA for the PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. It’s set to launch on 11/18/14 in the USA, 11/20/14 in Australia, 11/21/14 in Europe and 11/27/14 in Japan.

Battlefield May Be Transitioning To A 3-Year Development Cycle

Expect some changes in the development process.

EA has stated that the way in which future Battlefield games are developed could be changing.

When asked about whether or not Activision’s move to a 3-year development cycle for the Call of Dute franchise had any effect on how EA is currently handling the Battlefield franchise, EA Studios EVP Patrick Soderlund said the following:

“What they [Activision] are doing mimics to some extent how we’re thinking. Obviously, more time, if managed correctly, yields a better product. So I would say that we’re similarly aligned, and that we’re taking a similar approach, but we haven’t articulated exactly what teams are working [on], because that would imply announcing things that we can’t right now.”

This would be a very wise move for the Battlefield franchise as a whole, because just about everyone agrees that the Battlefield 4 launch was a disaster. With many left unimpressed with what the Battlefield Hardline beta had to offer, it’s probably a good idea for them to take a little more time to fully-realize future installments.

Check Out Some New ‘Dragon Age: Inquisition’ Screenshots

Bioware and EA have ahead and released 4 new screenshots from the upcoming RPG Dragon Age: Inquisition. The screens show off some stunning landscape shots found in the game.

The game runs on DICE’s FrostBite 3 engine, and it’s safe to say that the engine is capable of some truly incredible things. If all else fails, there is no question that Dragon Age: Inquisition will be a visually-stunning game.

Dragon Age: Inquisition is being developed by Bioware for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC. Check out the new screenshots below.
