Titanfall 2 Launching This Year But NBA Live Pushed To 2017

Titanfall 2 will be released between October and December 2016, EA has announced, though the company declined to offer an exact date.

The release window will see the futuristic mech shooter go up against rivals including Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare and another EA title, Battlefield 1.

EA revealed the release window during their latest financial report, confirming earlier rumours that the game would be released later this year.

Battlefield 1 is set for release on October 21st, while Infinite Warfare and Modern Warfare Remastered will be available on November 4th. It’s not yet known when Titanfall 2 will be available but we may learn that information at E3 in June, when the title’s gameplay reveal will take place.

EA also confirmed today that Mass Effect Andromeda will be released during the fourth quarter of the financial year, meaning sometime between January 1st and March 31st, 2017.

The company’s usual roster of sports titles will be available in the autumn with the exception of NBA Live which will launch in early 2017.

Explaining the decision to delay, EA’s Sean O’Brien commented:

“It’s important that you know that we are committed to NBA LIVE in the console space.  While we won’t be shipping a product this Fall, we will be back on the courts with something new and exciting for you to experience in early 2017.

“Our focus this year is to deliver an amazing, high-quality basketball game to a global audience. The best way to do that is through the fastest growing, largest, and most accessible gaming platform…mobile.  As a team, we’re really excited about taking the franchise to new places with the worldwide release of our mobile game later this year.”

DICE’s Mirror’s Edge Catalyst is set for release on June 7th.

Titanfall 2 is coming to PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. The game’s developer, Respawn Entertainment, recently announced that it is working on a third-person action adventure Star Wars game.
