Titanfall Is Being Discontinued & Removed From Gamepass, Respawn Has Announced

Titanfall, the 2016 multiplayer shooter from Respawn Entertainment, is being discontinued and removed from Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass subscription service early next year, March 1. Servers will, however, remain live for those still playing the game.

The news comes by way of an announcement over on the developer’s Twitter channel, which highlights the importance of the Titanfall franchise and Respawn’s intention to keep building games around its universe. It is described as a “north star” for the experiences the developer wants to create moving forward.

It isn’t quite the confirmation of Titanfall 3 that avid fans of the franchise have surely been pining for, but it’s certainly a positive that Respawn is intent on a continuation of its universe in some form — hardly surprising given the success of its Apex Legends battle royale game, which is based on the same lore.

The original Titanfall was, of course, followed by a sequel title that introduced a campaign for the first time. The game received a glowing critical reception but failed to capture a substantial player base, which ultimately saw Respawn abandon the idea of an immediate sequel and pivot to a battle royale spin-off in Apex Legends.
