A New Titanfall Game Is Coming This Year, Other EA Titles Too

Now that Apex Legends is out in the wild (and wildly popular already, with over 2.5 million players) EA have revealed that another Titanfall title is in the works, and set to be released this (financial) year.

But hold your horses: this *isn't* Titanfall 3. At least, we don't think it is. And nor is it the VR game that the studio is working on, as confirmed on Twitter by Vince Zampella, CEO of Respawn Entertainment.

This and other details were revealed in a quarterly earnings call from EA CEO Andrew Wilson. On Titanfall, he said: "As the live service evolves, Respawn also plans to launch a premium game this year that is a new twist on the Titanfall universe. More to come on that in the months ahead."

He went on to say that Battlefield V did not meet sales expectations, despite selling seven million copies (which means more folk own BFV than live in Scotland... but it's still not a success?!). He added, however, that the Battlefield franchise was "strong".

Mobile game Command & Conquer: Rivals also failed to meet expectations, though EA insisted that support for the title will continue. (This is a good time to remind you that those remasters are still on the way.)

The company seems very confident in BioWare's upcoming Anthem, with Wilson stating that "Millions of fans played more than 40 million hours of Anthem in our recent demos, and we're very pleased to see the excitement in retail and digital channels reaching higher-than-expected levels."

Fans of Need for Speed and Plants Vs Zombies can also get excited as it was mentioned new instalments will be coming before March 2020. The Plants Vs Zombies title is likely to be an all-new entry in its Garden Warfare series, which has been pretty decent so far, but maybe this third game can knock it out the park?

Are any of you excited about a new Titanfall? Or a new Plants Vs Zombies and Need for Speed? Let us know on Twitter and Facebook.
