Respawn Unsure If Titanfall 3 Will Be Happening…Yet

by Robert Workman


Titanfall 2 arrived for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Origin PC last month, and whipped players into a frenzy with its highly improved model, featuring a single player campaign, great multiplayer and a number of other options. But even with its high level of quality, that doesn't automatically guarantee the next chapter in the series.

Speaking with Glixel, Respawn Entertainment co-founder Vince Zampella noted that it's too soon to tell if Titanfall 3 will be happening. "We don't know yet," he said. He was quick to note that the game was a "huge success" when it came to game reviews, noting the team was "really happy with all the reviews and the positive sentiment." It's just a matter of "it's too early to tell" where the game stands sales-wise.

"We'd definitely like to tell more of the story and the universe," Zampella noted. "I think it's pretty safe to assume that we'll explore more of it. EA might have announced more."

As for the launch of the game itself, Zampella did state that "it definitely feels a little odd" having game releases right next to one another, as Titanfall 2 was basically sandwiched between EA's own Battlefield 1 and Activision's Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. "Infinite Warfare is from my old studio, that I built," he said. "And they're repackaging my old game that I built (Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered), on a brand that I built. So it's kind of like you're throwing it all against me."

Some fans did voice displeasure regarding the timing of Titanfall 2's release, coming out right after Battlefield 1. They also saw that the game has seen some drastic price drops just weeks after its release, being available at some retailers as low as $29.99.

That said, you shouldn't miss out. More sales of Titanfall 2 would pretty much guarantee that we'll get another chapter in this excellent series, and as you can see from our review, there's no reason why you shouldn't have it in your library.

Titanfall 2 is available now.
