Titanfall sequel confirmed, will be multi-platform
Titanfall 2 is in development and will be multi-platform, Respawn Entertainment has announced.
Speaking to IGN ahead of the BAFTA Game Awards on Thursday, March 12th, 2015, founder and CEO Vince Zampella said: “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.”
He continued: “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.”
Reflecting upon Titanfall’s multiplayer-only approach, Zampella explained: “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 people’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.”
Despite being nominated for three awards, Respawn Entertainment went home empty-handed at the BAFTA Game Awards.
Titanfall 2 is expected to launch on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. No release date has been announced.
