Titanfall dev not expecting to outsell Call of Duty

4.6
Respawn Entertainment co-founder Vince Zampella doesn't expect his new game, Titanfall, to outsell Call of Duty.

"It's a new brand," he said as he compared it to the dominant Activision-published FPS series he also helped create before his departure from Infinity Ward.

"You build up momentum over the years when you put out a new brand. It's starting over, so it won't sell as well [as Call of Duty]," he said in a recent radio interview, reports Gamespot.

"But for us it's kind of a passion project. We love it. It's something new," Zampella continued. "It's taking the old paradigm of these shooter games being very grounded and two-dimensional and now adding this verticality to it and making it something that's a new experience; something that people haven't seen before."

Zampella later confirmed that the multiplayer-only shooter will retail at $60 in North America.

The sci-fi shooter was officially announced at E3 in July. It went on to be named Best of Show at the E3 Game Critics Awards.

Titanfall will launch on Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC in spring 2014

Dragify I could care less if it outsells Cod because we all know it will be better than Cod Lol!


I have to say that this is probably true.


Completely agree with you guys.


4th That, Definitely will be better than COD and stack up against BF4
Make that a 5th. COD needs to either massively step up it's game or just die...


I about died of laughing when you said. Just die.

They won't outsell, but they'll do good.

The guy knows what he is talking about. Getting a new name out there to sell is a bit tougher than one that is already out there. Looks pretty good. May have to get it later on.

I understand CoD has gone slightly downhill but I don't see what the hate is all about, it will continue being a top selling game for the next few years at least, I don't plan on buying it but why can't people who play BF, Titanfall, GTA, CoD all get along haha

I don't think they ever planed on outselling I think they are more along the lines of Battlefield and having more loyal fans who stay for the long run.
