EA will rotate its three massive shooter franchises going into the future

EA has some hot property, there's no denying it, but going into the future they're going to be rotating its three main shooters, according to President of EA Labels, Frank Gibeau, during an interview with CVG.




These three shooters are Battlefield, Titanfall and Battlefront, but EA will be doing things a little differently from now. EA were alternating between its Battlefield and Medal of Honor franchises, but now that Medal of Honor is all but dead, the way EA are doing things will change. Back in January, EA were forced to state that it was "taking Medal of Honor out of rotation" for the forseeable future.


Gibeau told CVG: "The shooter rotation we think about now is Battlefield, Titanfall and Battlefront, and so we like those three brands going forward. We're working out how we're going to line that up because that's what you'll see from us."


October and November are set to be some huge months for gamers, with Battlefield 4 dropping October 29, one full week ahead of its main competitor: Call of Duty: Ghosts. Next spring, EA is set to launch Respawn Entertainment's Titanfall, which should be a gigantic event. Remember, Respawn Entertainment is made up by the ex-Infinity Ward guys, Frank Zampella and Jason West.
