    The helmet from that Titanfall guy has a Dead Space touch to it.

    In general, movie poster and video game box designers have very little originality.

    It seems, at least with Hollywood, that movie poster artists seem to find a certain "look" they like from any given star and then do their very best to run that look into the ground by using it every. single. time.

    Doesn't surprise me, pre-orders for T2 were apparently abysmal, so pushing out an offer on both may well improve sales, be interesting what measures they use to try and sell more Infinity wars copies too, rumour has it that its even less popular than T2. O.o

    I'm not big into movies, but I've never seen (or at least noticed) 2 different games literally copy & pasting each others artwork so blatantly like that lol.

    I only know that because my son just bought Battlefield 1. He's been saving up and just got enough for the deluxe edition. He's mildly interested in Titanfall 2, but not seriously. It's BF1 and the new Destiny xpac. He's more interested in Destiny 2 than Titanfall 1/2.

    Haha your comparison case is closer than most, that's for sure.  It reminded me of those humor articles referencing that exact same kind of "Yo, isn't this EXACTLY like that other game??" feeling you're getting from the two posters you included.

    From what I've gathered, the posters use as much marketing technique as they do artistic technique.  if you look closely, you'll see trends throughout these types of entertainment options that are all similar within their genre and very much intentional (i.e. Horror movies utilize a lot of blue hues to communicate hopelessness of the protagonists and to give the entire picture an ominous overtone).

    It's pretty interesting, how marketing interacts with artistry to influence our brains subconsciously!

    Yeah it really is an interesting topic.

    Feels like it's on purpose? Might either be a shout out to the other game, or some sort of a marketing/branding move?

    Maybe Titanfall 2 is hoping people get confused and actually buy the game.

    Titanfall 2 is awesome to be honest. Shame there will not be enough players to consistently get matches and battles.

    Watching some multiplayer of it now. I'm just not sure I'll ever be into FPS games like I used to. CoD burned me out.

    Yeah I can get that. I have not been much of a COD fan in recent years so I don't have the shooter burnout. I tend to be more of a Far Cry person for FPS games. Titanfall 2 really surprised me. Far better than the first one and the single player campaign is actually really good.
