Titanfall 2 has flown too close to the sun, and by sun we mean the releases of Battlefield 1, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare and Skyrim Special Edition (which only runs at 30FPS on the Xbox One and PS4, by the way). The first-week sales numbers are in, and it's not looking good at all for EA and Respawn Entertainment.

GamesIndustry.biz is reporting that Titanfall 2's physical sales in the UK are "well below the ones achieved by its predecessor", which it should be reiterated - was released on the Xbox One and PC only. GamesIndustry.biz reports: "In fact, the game's launch sales are barely a quarter of the ones achieved by its original - despite the fact that this sequel has the added benefit of launching on PS4. Titanfall 2 debuts at No.4 in the GfK Top 10, while the original reached No.1".

Now we have to question the future of not only the Titanfall franchise, but of developer Respawn Entertainment - their sequel to Titanfall looks like it won't be something that's remembered, but will EA continue throwing money at them?
