There’s no two ways about it, Titanfall 2’s release date was almost sending the game out to die as much as Rise of the Tomb Raider’s was last year. Though it’s fair to say that both Titanfall 2 and Battlefield 1 occupy different audiences, there’s still a small amount of overlap that will come as part of players not necessarily being able to afford or have the time for multiple FPS title. Unfortunately for Titanfall 2, it didn’t just have to compete with its fellow EA title.
Only one week after Titanfall 2 releases, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare hits the market. Even though it hasn’t had the best reception from fans for its futuristic setting, it’s a Call of Duty title, meaning it’s still going to sell a ton. Sandwiching Titanfall 2 between the juggernauts of Battlefield 1 and Infinite Warfare was a bad move. Especially when it occupies the same sort of space as the Activision title.
