For those unaware, EA made the baffling decision of releasing Titanfall 2 just a week after Battlefield 1, and now ex-Respawn devs comment about it.
Titanfall 1 multiplayer was better. The 4 hour Titanfall 2 campaign was really good though.
The campaign was great, one of my favorite in a shooters. Hopefully they return to it one day
The multiplayer was and still is a blast to play till this day
For me, this is the best shooter this gen. SP and MP were both top-tier. I played this recently, and the MP still holds up very, very well.
Titanfall 2 was much better than Titanfall 1, in every way.
IDK depends. I prefer rodeo system in 1 over the battery in 2. Some things I liked better in one, but 2 def improved in a lot of areas
You're probably letting TF1's limited platform releases get in the way of actual mechanical analysis. I don't mind the shade thrown at the slim launch content, but TF1 balances its interlocking systems more cohesively than TF2 did (especially during their respective launches). Time to kill, map design, the risk/reward of destorying a Titan as a pilot, easier upkeep of acceleration, etc. made TF1's gameplay fire on all cylinders. 2's MP is still really good all the same, but it never hooked me the same way.
Capture the flag on titanfall 1 one was a blast, I miss the game.
I felt like the campaign was way generic and overrated. Not saying that to be disagreeable, just my humble opinion.
Titanfall 1's multiplayer destroyed Titanfall 2's multiplayer
Titanfall 1 had a legendary multiplayer.
Basically EA set them up to die Then they were bought a while after Personally I think it was a ploy to reduce the studios price "Well your last game didn't do so well in the grand scheme of things so we don't think we could pay XXXX amount for you, however if you were to lower that price..."
I don't think they wanted Respawn or TF2 to die, but it was greed. EA so desperately wanted to eat up COD that it attacked it with two games. Backfired though.
this had zero to do with EA...Respawn had a choice and wanted to release when it did....
Respawn are the ones who requested the date.
Even if they did request it, did they know Battlefield's release date? Did EA tell them? I highly doubt it, no way they'd ask for a release date if they knew what Battlefields was.
The Bf date was well known lol. geez gamers hate for EA clouds all logic apparently.
No EA did not know BF was dropping. Looking at the video, between EA and Respawn, they really didn't share much communication seems. EA let Respawn do as they please and checked up on them from time to time. I know in a lot of cases its nice to point fingers at EA, but seems like Respawn had complete control
Then delay it...the fact they didn't speaks volumes
They did,, don;t mind the minions downvoting, facts can hurt. It's silly, I hate EA too but this is all on Respawn, they thought their game would take on COD and BF, these games nearly always launch OCt/NOV, everyone knew COD was also coming in NOV.
No, EA had right of first refusal for Respawn. Someone else was trying to purchase them.
They launched the game between the releases of COD and Battlefield.. The first game was an xbox and pc only game which means playstation only players didn't know much about the series and would pick a shooter series they are more familiar with if given the choice. Idk what they were expecting to happen.
Dying laughing at all the ignorance here quick to blame EA....Respawn choose that date, EA did not force anything on Respawn, they were arrogant and thought they could take on COD and BF...
LOl at downvoting facts, this was confirmed by EA and is common knowledge...Downvote facts must be trumpers.
Still a profitable game selling over 5M copies. I upgraded my PC just to experience Source Engine 2.0 properly.
TF2 was the better game
Titanfall 2 should have been a early year release after all the “big” games get released during the holidays and have the space to itself. Too bad MS wasn’t on their Studio buying spree back then and have another talented dev to the portfolio for XSX
EA has had a history of doing this. Like releasing Crysis 3 and Dead Space 3 in the exact same friggin month. Then releasing Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel not even a full month afterwards.
Brilliant game with a fabulous campaign......but, that damn training speed run trophy was ridiculous, it's the only trophy between me and a platinum on that game and it drives me bonkers 😂
I agree lol. I gave up haha
Yup, I had to give up too.....very upsetting hahaha
Im not a MP person so I played and liked Titanfall 2 more than both BF1 and CoD.
Titanfall is the better game by miles
not surprising the most corporate of corporate mentalities, comes from this company, as it relates to gaming. there's a story (told by a former EA developer) that they had a higher tier executive who decided that he was going to dictate, or try and dictate how the actual game design process in the company was going to be. ( more efficient) and this consisted of the belief that you could have everybody working in different places on different things, and then you would get together at the end, the last say 6-9 months of a project and assemble it. (sound familiar/ Andromeda?) this way they could shift teams here and there who are done on certain things, to different places and be able to almost at will shift groups of manpower into different projects, to get things done. ya know, keep the schedule on time, of course the schedule being the most important thing, not the quality of the games or the fact that you're Poppin people all over, to project's they're not familiar with, all of the other obvious things you would not consider, about game design, being an absolutely atrociously horrible thought if you know one single thing about it. but being an executive, of course, he doesn't. "I'm just going to make decisions as to what I think is overall best for the company" my understanding is he doesn't work for EA anymore. thank God. they have a pretty solid history of making some incredibly poor decisions that just defy common sense. and running with it... best time to release any game is in the least crowded window you can find, nowadays. who doesn't know this? how many years did gamers collectively complain that their were no good Summer games, and the summer drought scenario was a yearly thing...
It was a calculated move by EA to easily come in and acquire the studio and the Titanfall IP. There’s no other reasoning to have these two shooters release in the same timeframe along with call of duty. Called this as soon as the date was announced. Sure enough EA bought them up shortly after the poor launch. EA spent next to no money or time promoting the game where in turn Battlefield had tons of marketing.
I never understood this. If you want the game buy it whenever you get a chance. Did people really just decide hey I only had money for Battlefield/COD so I can never buy this game? If it came out a month later people why should it change anything? Just PRETEND it came out a month later and buy it then.
I'm glad Titanfall 2 sold poorly. That MP was pure garbage! All Respawn had to do was recreate the MP from the first game and add to it and then add a compelling campaign to go with it. GOTY contender right there and they failed miserably.
Loved the multi in the first game but the second game i just played co op , but i actually finished a play through of the 2nd game i rarely finish singleplayer at all these days.
Wow EA. Sabotaging their own game! smh.
The release date 100% sunk that wonderful game.
TF1 was such an amazing game. Hard to play now as theres no normies left online just psychopath unemployed.
Titanfall 1 multiplayer was better. It destroyed Titanfall 2's multiplayer.
Titanfall 2 still sold over 4 million copies in like a month though.
Titanfall 1 was way more fun online
What he's saying here is pretty spot on.
As a big Titanfall 1 fan, I was disappointed how Titanfall 2 was mishandled. They should have delayed the game until the new year and made it a Jan or Feb release instead. Even though I found the multiplayer not to be as good as the 1st, it was still fun, and the game had an outstanding single player. I would love to see a 3rd game.
