Probably because this is gonna end up being one of those games that did sell relatively well, but it's gonna end up being a loss because they spent way too much money on marketing and now they're feeling pretty stupid about it.
I agree that it wasn't remotely close to the figure they expected. I think part of it falls solely on M$ for making a watercooler that watches you instead of a gaming system. It has a large stigma attached which will hurt any exclusives.
EA is another part because of shoddy business practices.

Life must be pretty miserable for haters. The constant negativity must get tiresome I would say eh!?
1 million in the first 3 weeks. It's been out for 9 weeks now so that number should be quite higher. Also, digital copies have not been taken into account INCLUDING PC sales through origin. Did anyone even think this was gonna be a blockbuster PC game anyways? And do PC users even buy physical copies anymore in a world ruled by the likes of steam and origin (as bad as origin is). Anyways everyone all knew that Titanfall was all about the Xbox One first.
Downplay it all you want, sure the sales numbers which we are all just speculating at this point may not be earth shattering or anything like that, but it's certainly not bad. It is sad however to see how some of you guys get your panties in a bunch over stuff like this.
