Mass Effect Andromeda, Battlefield 5 and Respawn’s all-but-confirmed Titanfall 2 may still be searching for firm release dates, though during a post-earnings financial call (via GameSpot) CEO Andrew Wilson noted that all three titles will launch during fiscal year 2017.
Outside of business jargon, that places the trio in question on course for a debut somewhere between April 1, 2016 and March 31, 2017, with common logic dictating that Andromeda and DICE’s Battlefield 5 will occupy the all-important fall window, while Titanfall 2 will echo its predecessor by making its titanic bow in March of next year.
That’s merely conjecture, of course, and while there’s scant detail to be found about either release, Wilson did offer a fleeting update regarding Respawn’s sequel. Building on the success of the Xbox console exclusive, the EA executive teased that Respawn’s follow-up is already “looking fantastic,” and that he has “great faith in [Respawn] to build a spectacular game.”
Titanfall launched for Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC in March of 2014 as an online-only multiplayer title. It proved to overly successful, but in the time that’s lapsed since its debut, mooted reports claim that Respawn is planning a multi-platform release for the inevitable follow-up – one which may even feature a solo campaign.
In light of today’s confirmation, Mass Effect Andromeda, Battlefield 5 and Titanfall 2 are all on course to hit shelves before March 31, 2017. But out of the threesome, which title do you think will make it out the gate first?
