An EA Executive casually mentioned the possibility of a new Titanfall game “sometime down the road” while discussing studio acquisitions during a financial call. Blake Jorgensen, EA’s COO and CFO, was answering a question about EA possibly acquiring any new studios and brought up the process of acquiring Respawn Entertainment, when he mentioned the magic word.
“It wasn’t about Titanfall, and that’s no offense to Titanfall; it’s an amazing game and we’ll maybe see a Titanfall at some point, sometime down the road,” Jorgensen said.
Jorgensen was more than likely just using it as an example to strengthen his answer, more stumbling into Titanfall than coyly teasing it. But in a conversation dominated by financial numbers and FIFA Ultimate Team, my ears were burning at the mention of one of EA’s best franchises having even the most remote possibility at getting a new entry.
