Titanfall is expected to hit 2.4 million units shipped during EA’s fiscal fourth quarter, according to estimates from Robert W. Baird & Co. analyst Colin Sebastian.
and that doesn't count digital I am assuming. Pretty good launch numbers.
this is just ea sales into stores "Near term, we are adjusting estimates to assume 2.4 million sell-in of Titanfall in F4Q with CY2014 total shipments of 6 million units,” he said." from the story
this is for all platforms Gears of War did better numbers on the 360 alone, so Titanfall will do nothing like CoD numbers or even Halo.
between three platforms they should easily ship these numbers.
NewMonday the xbox 360 had been out for a year by the time Gears of War had came out. By the time COD became big consoles were saturated world wide.
I can see them Posting good sales numbers later.
I would expect 2 million alone on 360.. The fact they are only expecting 2.6 on all 3 means its gonna be less.. I really expected this to sell more..
"Gears of War did better numbers on the 360 alone, so Titanfall will do nothing like CoD numbers or even Halo." Sqaure Enix opinion on sales right there^^^
My friends and I downloaded the game for Xbox One. They are not counting downloads.
nothing about sales here, these are just their shipment numbers...
Estimated projections of shipment numbers. edit: then again, there's the Xbox 360 copies, so I take it back; those numbers seem reasonable enough.
This is just shipped to stores across 3 platforms? Stay away from the internet when infamous ps4 beats titanfal xb1 sales. It's going to be a blood bath!!!
Right, but shipment sizes are determined by orders, wich are determined by stores based on consumer interest.
Is that right, mhunterjr? Then why were there so many XB1s sitting on shelves for so long? Did a bunch of customers demand nearly a million consoles and then change their minds?
@ Rinkuchal yeah good point, but keep in-mind they don't tend to ship that many units unless demand is really high, meaning - People actually putting money down in the stores.. and having the demand really high, (stores ordering higher numbers of copies because of walk-in traffic) your not going to ship 2.4 million if you think you can only sell 1 million - So Shipping numbers are close to what sales should be around.. These kind of ship numbers mean the title is selling really well, based on pre-orders and demand and the buzz stores are getting from consumers.. A lot goes into it, but the actual numbers are usually pretty close. I would say it's sold over a million on launch, and based on that it should pass the 2.4 million easy with-in the next two weeks..
People are confused. 2.4 million across 3 platforms is not what MS or EA were expecting. This is supposed to be a cod killer yet it will sell across 3 platforms what killzone done with one? MS needed titanfall to be a system seller, yet titanfall according to every piece of data out there is not moving any systems. EU/xb1 hasn't cracked a million yet. EU/titanfall is barely moving anywhere! Titanfall didn't do what ms needed it to do and shipped estimates being that low is a terrible sign. Infamous will sell one million copies in a day you know why? PS4 and infamous preorders world wide are beyond 600K. Look at the facts my fellow gamers look at those facts!!!
@merciless You are confused. Those killzone numbers you cited were comined digital and physical sales. Based on these orders there's a good chance both versions of titanfall will sell more than killzone when you factor in digital downloads.
Much better launch numbers than Killzone Shadow Fall.
Lol learn to read.These aren't launch numbers.
What's Killzone? Halo wannabe killer?
are you dumb? KZ sold 2.2mil on one console EA are saying they will ship (not sell) 2.something across 3 platforms? Do you have problems with mathematics?
Silly trolls. Killzone was a console launch title, and selling 2.2 million is pretty damn good.
Doesn't say much will knack as an exclusive competitor to killzone on launch
That comment is lacking any sort of logic there @fredy, Killzone competed against the 2 biggest shooters in the history of gaming in both Call of Duty Ghost and Battlefield.
Killzone was a console launch title' Titanfall launch title too. Duh.
"Titanfall launch title too. Duh." Lmao, i don't think you understand what a launch title is. Unless the X1 was released 11th March? Lol.
Indeed this is across 3 systems and most of those shipped will be 360 copies..
Those aren't "launch numbers", they're estimations.
Actually, it would include digital sells. This was in regards to the companies fiscal results. They don't separate the money they make on a game through retail from the money they make on digital sells. Investors don't care where the game was sold. That said, the number is actually kind of low to me considering that the game is out on both pc and xbox weeks before their Q4 ends... I would have expected 6M on the 360 alone. Then again, their numbers could also be low. For them to be underestimating the numbers 2 days after the game has launched though... I'm wondering if sales of the game have under performed??? After all, Killzone sold 2.1M on just one platform.
Just an fyi, It hasn't released on 360 yet.
Michael Patcher said that Titanfall will sell 500,000 or less X1. 95% present of the titinfall sales will be from 360 and PC versions of Titanfall mostly 360. Microsoft is hiding the 360 version of Titanfall because it is identical To the x1 version of Titanfall. What game can you remember that you haven't seen and is released in two weeks like Titanfall. Titanfall on 360 will have the same resolution and graphics just like COD ghost on x1 Was almost identical to the 360 version. They both run on the 10 year old Source engine.
It includes the free copies of titanfall that came with an Xbox one this month.
quite a projection. hope they reach it...
We can see that happening easily.
I hope EA loses a lot of money. But that's just me. No offense to MS.
That's a huge success... Much better then I thought it was going to do.. With 6 million shipping - I guess TitanFall will indeed become the new Call Of Duty... these are huge numbers, when you consider it's on PC and XboxOne.. -No 360 yet... and no PS3 & PS4 -so doing those numbers are seriously impressive.
The six million haven't been shipped yet. There are still 7 months left in the "current year."
@ Skate-AK Yes I meant to say shipping, thanks.. *I fixed it
Shipped does not mean sold to consumers shipped is sold to retailers. titanfall is a good game and i hope it sales through the shipments Edited while i was still typing :)
That is shipped. I want to know how much it sold first day.. MS always comes out and says how much day sold day one.. I am having fun in TF and then Infamous next week.. This month is a good month for us gamers ( TF, Second Son, Dark souls and Metal gear )
its only been out two days...and the EU release was todayy
every month is a good month for gamers. The problem is their are too many people like yourself who only seek blockbuster titles.
so, xboxone has sold 3 million units but everyone will get 2 titanfall!!!
Probably go ahead and read the article again... seems like your reading comprehension is lacking.
pretty good. Wish all of X1 guys a lot of fun with this game. While it is not my type of game and I am with the PS4 camp looking forward to play Infamous, I think it is good to have competition. I don't want Sony to rely on their early success! Keep pushing Sony! GoGoGo! :D
Well MS is practically giving the game away unless you are an early adopter. I expect it to sell more on the 360.
u realize those are digital codes this is the physical copy
This is about their financial statement it includes all versions which means also the free copies. 2 million is not a lot of copies at all for a game as hyped as this on 3 platforms , killzone sold more on just the ps4 whilst being released at the same time as cod and Bf , that puts titanfall sales into prospective. Deny all you want but there are 80 million plus 360s, 3 million xbones and easily 100s of millions of pcs out there yet only 2 million copies being shipped for all 3 ??? That's bad
This is nothing but wish calculations. They should be lucky if they sell 3 millions by the end of the year.
Across all platforms I'd reckon over 5 million by the end of the year. Xbox1 maybe 2 million.
I wish Ea, respawn and Ms success. The game so far has been really well received by critics and gamers alike and if they can achieve these numbers then it would be safe to call titanfall a new and successful franchise.
Huge numbers indeed for a new IP. Congratulations
What are you talking about? Who are you congratulating? It's nothing to do with sales.
I don't know anyone who bought TF disc. All my friends bought it digital. PC and xbox1 friends
Why disagree this? lol Some people
same here. Everyone I know has it digitally downloaded.
Game is better (at least more intriguing) than CoD at least, so it's a good "first game." I want destructability in the sequel and more mech variety, game modes, and A STORY CAMPAIGN!
I think destruction would be too uneven. Titans would be too powerful if the pilots can't escape them. Balance wise I like it this way. I do think they need to add more guns. Everyone uses the carbine. Not much to chose from on that front. Maybe with dlc?
It would definitely take some balance work, but they could do it. Certain areas indestructible, others only surface destruction, some full building demolition, some maps ZERO destruction apart from cosmetic. I'm just gonna wait on a sequel or possibly when the price is down as the game is just a bit to 'thin' for me right now for full price. Now CoD (peer pressured into it) was a complete waste of 60.00... but then again, there wasn't tons too choose from either, such is the price of early console adoption.
This is new ip so very good numbers...Halo and the next Gears should do better on just the Xbox One. If the game is played for a long time respawn has the opportunity to clean house with Titanfall part deux. Maybe add a proper campaign. Also this game is a great game so Microsoft can test their azure platform for future games.
Wouldn't matter what the numbers were , little winkies will rush in here to pee on it....
So much for killing Call of Duty huh? 2.4 are the Call of Duty sales numbers in the first 2 hours a CoD of release. And for Titanfall that's a shipped number not a sold number. My guess here is that at least for the X1 Titanfall sales were not as good as Microsoft hoped. We're past 48hre post Titanfall release and that's more than enough time to put out the actual sales numbers and they put out the shipped number. I doubt we'll get that sales number. That may change after the Xbox 360 Titanfall release. And putting out the Titanfall shipped number also speaks to the X1 console sale. Again I'm guessing but I'm gonna say very few picked up a X1 to play Titanfall. After all the cost was way to high. Console $500 , Titanfall 60, XBL $60 (year), plus tax....that's a $600 game. Just my opinion.
Titanfall hasn't released everywhere yet. EU is today or tomorrow I think. The 360 version is a few weeks away too. I'm sure we will get a March number for copies sold. This also does not take into count digital copies, so who knows how well it did. I personally don't know anyone who bought the disc.
Shipped=SOLD TO RETAILERS Ea/respawn got that money already soooo.......
Are these numbers for all platforms?
Not to shabby if accurate.
are shipped the same as sold?
I'd think so. The article is based on estimates though so grains of salt need involved. Could be more, could be less.
