Electronic Arts announced today that it will push the Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC title forward to release it sooner than expected – March 11, 2014. While that's good news for fans of the game that made such a grand showing at E3 this year, analysts are saying that this move by EA is to take advantage of Watch Dogs being delayed by Ubisoft until sometime in the first half of 2014. Research firm Stern Agee is comfortable saying that this news by EA is a response to the delay of Ubisoft's multiplatform title Watch Dogs.

Prior to today's announcement, TitanFall was expected to release sometime in June 2014.
