EA Games Targeting 2Q17 for Titanfall 2, Battlefield 5, & Mass Effect 4

By Published January 30, 2016 at 1:16 pm

We just reported on WD & Seagate's fiscal year 2Q16 earnings, both hard drive companies showing a decline in both revenue and income. Not to be left behind, publicly-held EA Games recently released its shareholder earnings call transcript with a roadmap for the next year.

The company is currently developing and publishing “Mass Effect 4” (official title – Mass Effect: Andromeda), the next Battlefield game, and “Titanfall 2” (name TBD). All three series will deliver their refreshments in 2017, with Titanfall and Mass Effect updating prior to 2Q17 (before April). Titanfall 2 is known to be multi-platform and will retain its focus on fast-paced, parkour-inspired gameplay.

EA Games also noted on its earnings call that “players in our live services will continue to experience engaging new content, expansions, and updates and will have more new mobile titles.” Immediately following this, the call turned toward discussion of eSports:

“Competition runs deep in the DNA of Electronic Arts and we are thrilled to share the passion with our players through our new competitive gaming division, led by Peter Moore. For years, we've experienced the energy of competitive gaming through events and tournaments for our EA Sports and Battlefield communities. […] We are working to deliver our best-in-class program of competitions that are accessible, engaging, and entertaining at all levels, celebrating the talent and skill of our players.”

As for the immediately interesting game launches, it's looking like the Big Three are slated for 2017.

Steve started GamersNexus back when it was just a cool name, and now it's grown into an expansive website with an overwhelming amount of features. He recalls his first difficult decision with GN's direction: "I didn't know whether or not I wanted 'Gamers' to have a possessive apostrophe -- I mean, grammatically it should, but I didn't like it in the name. It was ugly. I also had people who were typing apostrophes into the address bar - sigh. It made sense to just leave it as 'Gamers.'"

First world problems, Steve. First world problems.
