Battlefield can’t even outsell Call of Duty, yet Titanfall is supposed to?
Not Outsell but go against, given enough of a push, I think Titan Fall could do decently. Its a great game, hate that it was put between COD and BF1 last year...
Yeah, I don’t know what the plan with that was on EA’s end.
The only way that can happen is to have an E-Sports presence and have more Pilot focused game modes. Otherwise it'll never put a a fight despite, IMO, being the better made game.
I agree Titanfall 2 was a great game but it lacks polish. Even today you can play CoD IW and get new weapon rewards, animated skins etc but TF2 felt kind of flat in that area and the menu system is very dull. Fix this area and maybe opt for a proper season pass but at a realistic price (£20 - £25) or even just charge for a user map editor (as generally I find user created content often has more ingenuity) and I think they could beat CoD or at least rival it.
Well, than you are saying no, it should not go up against COD then.
BF > COD
Sales, not sure how well that would work out but more in terms of games.
To me TitanFall is a WAY better game than COD. Hopefully its get more shine.
Yes, I hope it gets a year of shine.
I would grab Titanfall over COD but thats me personally .
I’m sure there are others who feel the same.
Same, I think I am done with the cod franchise. Lol cant believe years ago I was like why would ppl choose bf over cod but after playing bf1 I can understand why
Stack up in terms of games? Sure. Sales? That’s another story.
Took you a bit of time to rethink things for another comment. ;)
Titanfall can't compete with CoD on sales front, it doesn't even do close of half of CoD's numbers
No, EA most likely bought Respawn so it can run them to the ground, take it out back and add it to the graveyard of all the other once great studios they ruined while simultaneously stealing all their talent to distribute to their own studios.
if EA wants titanfall to compete with call of duty they need to give the developer enough time to make a quality product. Then they need to advertise it. Oh and preferably not release it between COD and BF because it's still the new kid on the block regardless of how much advertising they pump in. Maybe the second installation under EA will challenge Call of Duty but the first time they need to release it during a sparse area to get sales for itself. However, the reality of how EA works is this. They'll force them to pump out games a few times and then they'll blame them when it doesn't sell as well when it's scrunched in between COD and BF with minimal marketing and the studio will close down and be in a heap with all the other studios EA has totally destroyed.
I dont think this will work, I think they should just let titanfall do its thing , EA should have learned by now case in point thier medal of honour franchise
Oh EA, you do love to send out good franchises out at the worst possible time just to watch them die a slow death. Just like with TF2 when wedged between cod iw and bf1
Yeah, this made no sense.
Call of Duty is very generic but even then Titanfall is too boring to compete.
Match up against? How about stands up to Giant robots, lighting control, incredible graphics, sound, grappling hook rodeo, wall hugging PVP, PVE horde mode and free updates forever. Titanfall 2 - Best FPS this gen IMO.
For people who have played TF2, this has been the consensus. They love the game and series.
Titanfall is better than COD imo.
Is EA still mad how Call of Duty ended up killing their Medal of Honor franchise and hope that Titanfall can avenge it?
Speaking to people who have played TF2, the love the game, much more than Activisions offering. If the next game had serious promo backing to it, it can have a chance. Not to beat it sales but to be a competitor.
