Michael Pachter has predicted the sales for the upcoming multiplatform video game, “Titanfall.” According to a report from iGame Responsibly on Jan. 9, the analyst from Wedbush Securities believed that the amount of units sold will be based on the review scores the software product will receive.
Michael Pachter projected that “Titanfall” will sell somewhere between 6 to 10 million copies. If the multiplayer-focused first-person shooter receives an aggregate review score above 90, the analyst thinks that the sales will end up higher on the scale. However, the same product would end up selling lower if the average score drops below 80.

My best guess is 6 – 10 million units, depending upon the game review scores. If it gets above a 90, it will likely be at the high end of that range, below an 80, at the low end.
“Titanfall” is expected to be heavily advertised due to a console exclusive deal between Microsoft and Electronic Arts. In fact, the video game was already shown in a commercial that aired during the launch of the Xbox One.
In addition to the next-generation system, the video game is also set to come out for the PC and Xbox 360 on March 11th. Due to the aforementioned deal, “Titanfall” is not expected to be released for the PS4. The software product is developed by Respawn Entertainment by the same core staff members that worked on the “Call of Duty” series.
