Titanfall 2 and Battlefield 1 are both set to deploy before Christmas, but now publisher EA Games has revealed that the first-person shooters will release within three weeks of each other. The snippet was revealed by chief financial officer Blake Jorgensen at the 2016 Bank of America Merrill Lynch Global Technology Conference, in which he talked about competition with Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, and how the company's "not uncomfortable" with going head-to-head.
Battlefield 1 is, of course, due out on 21st October, with Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare due on 4th November. Jorgensen suggested that EA will position the two shooters on "both sides" of the Activision release, indicating perhaps that Titanfall 2 will launch on 11th November, or somewhere around there. It all sounds like a commercial car crash to us – few will be able to afford all three titles, and at least one is going to struggle as a consequence.
