Respawn explain why there’s no Titans in Apex Legends

Battlefield V Underperforms and EA Blames Single Player For It

It doesn't really matter why BF V actually disappointed, though, what matters is EA still very much thinks single-player is an unimportant element of its games. Following the successful launch of Apex Legends earlier this week, Epic upped their advertising efforts, leading many to wonder if Respawn's free-to-play battle royale title is here to take on the reigning champion, and if the Fortnite devs are anxious.

After the surprise launch of battle royale Apex Legends, Respawn Entertainment confirmed yesterday that it wasn't working on Titanfall 3.

Looking at the numbers, Q3 ending on December 31, 2018, had EA hitting $1.289 billion in net revenue.

If you're out of the loop: Apex Legends is a bit of a departure from the traditional Titanfall formula, being a free-to-play battle royale game instead of a first-person shooter. EA wanted Battlefield V to sell around 8.3 million units but only ended up around 7.3 million. "We absolutely are looking at that in the context of Apex", Wilson said in regards to cross-platform play, noting that other games in EA's lineup, particularly Federation Internationale de Football Association, could benefit from cross-play as well. As the live service evolves, Respawn also plans to launch a premium game this year that is a new twist on the Titanfall universe.

"FIFA stands out as a robust franchise through a tumultuous year in the video game industry", said COO and CFO Blake Jorgensen. That Battle Royale mode is still on target for March. He also pointed to the game's holiday launch.

The Twitch Rivals Apex Legends Challenge takes place on February 12 and February 19 and features 48 streamers competing for $200,000 in prizes, Twitch said in a blog post on Wednesday. Seeing as it is an ad that appears, it likely means that Epic Games set it up to advertise their battle royale game when players search for a specific keyword or phrase.

While this figure is 11 percent up on the 2017 figure, it underlines the extent to which EA is losing ground to competitors like Epic Games which owns Fortnite.
