Titanfall turned a year old yesterday. A full year has gone by of parkour, shooting bots, robots, and dropping your Titan on another one. To celebrate, Respawn has made the season pass free for everyone. The only way things could get better is if they revealed that they’re working on the sequel. Oh wait, Vince Zampella did:
“I guess EA announced a sequel, so I could play coy and pretend I don’t know anything about it, or… yeah. So we’re working on a sequel. No official name yet, but we’re working on that. That’s the main focus but we’re starting up a second team and doing some smaller stuff too. Small, exploratory, taking it slow! It’ll be multiplatform.”
The original was an Xbox exclusive, to the disappointment of many PS4 owners. If you didn’t own a PC, Xbox One or 360, you were outta luck. An extra platform is sure to spread Titanfall’s reach even further and give it some extra longevity. Zampella also promised that the lore would be expanded, but the approach to single player was a bit unclear:
“I wouldn’t have done it differently. We set out to do it and it was one of our goals. I mean it obviously prohibits a certain group of people playing the game, and as content creators you want to get into as many peoples’s hands as possible. We put some single-player elements in there though, and tried to mix it up. Maybe we could have mixed things up a bit better because some people blew right by it and didn’t even see it because there was so much action happening around it. It’s tough, because if you hit people over the head with it it becomes intrusive, and there are people who don’t want or care about it. Where does the needle fall? I think it takes a while to figure that out and we haven’t figured it out yet.”
Whatever form the single player takes, know that more Titanfall will be coming in the near future. Are you excited? Don’t care? Do you still play Titanfall? Let us know in the comments below.
