New Battlefield and Titanfall games will launch during publisher Electronic Arts’ third financial quarter, and the E3 2015-announced Mass Effect: Andromeda in its fourth financial quarter, company CFO Blake Jorgensen said during the Media & Telecom Conference at Morgan Stanley Technology yesterday.
That means the next Battlefield and Titanfall games will launch sometime between September 30 and December 31, 2016, while Mass Effect: Andromeda will launch sometime between January 1 and March 31, 2017.
“We’ve got a great year ahead,” Jorgensen said during the conference. “We’ve got our Battlefield first-person shooter game coming in the third quarter, and our third-party title that Respawn, our partner, built. It’s called Titanfall, it’s the second title that they brought into that brand. Both of those are first-person shooters and will be targeted around the fast, action-driven shooter market, as well as the strategy-driven market in that quarter… We have our Mirror’s Edge runner game this first quarter, and then we have Mass Effect, which is a sci-fi action game, in our fourth quarter. So big year ahead and we’re pretty excited.”
A Titanfall II announcement is likely to happen soon, if recent GameStop promotional preparations and online listings are anything to go by.
Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst is also mentioned as a first quarter title. Electronic Arts’ first financial quarter runs between April 1 and June 30. Mirror’s Edge Catalyst has already been dated for a May 24 release across PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
