The PC version of Titanfall will be a 21GB download, and will take up 48GB when installed.

Respawn Entertainment founder Vince Zampella confirmed the figures on Twitter last week in response to a question posed by a fan.

Zampella also used the social networking site to reconfirm that the Xbox One version of Titanfall will take up less than 20GB when installed.

Over two million users signed up for free-to-play shooter Loadout in its first 14 days of release, logging in over 9 million hours in the game, developer Edge of Reality has announced.

The developer said that Loadout has been so popular that it made getting into the game difficult on day one. Edge of Reality has since improved its infrastructure, but is still having trouble meeting demand.

Loadout’s most notable feature is its weapon-crafting system, with over “44 billion possible variations” for players to assemble, allowing them to define their own class and play style.

Square Enix’s reboot of Thief has been a bigger hit than many might have predicted, despite its poor critical response. In fact it achieved the second highest sales for any number one this year, behind FIFA 14. Although that’s not too hard considering how few major new releases have been out so far.

No doubt thanks to its substantial marketing campaign Thief was clearly the biggest winner, although it’s interesting that 75 per cent of its sales were on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

Plants Vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare also did better on Xbox One compared to Xbox 360, at 57 per cent to 43 per cent. Some have questioned Respawn’s predictions of Titanfall selling best on the Xbox One, but based on these results that now seems almost guaranteed.
