In a recent interview with the EXL Podcast, Abbie Heppe – community manager at Respawn Entertainment – all but confirmed the next Titanfall game by stating that there will be “a lot of stuff that people are going to be excited about”.
Titanfall 2 is yet to be officially announced, but you can guarantee that it is already in the works and planned for release in the foreseeable future. This interpretation is largely down to what Abbie had to say:
“The really nice thing about working on a sequel is we have established the core of what Titanfall is. We have assets, we have an engine, we have all of these things that we laid the foundation for in the first game that now we can really build off of in the second. So I think there’s going to be a lot of stuff that people are going to be excited about. And that’s all I can say.”
I can think of numerous franchises that have really kicked on with the sequel, so fingers crossed that the sequel to Titanfall will follow suit. Whilst the original Titanfall was well received and sold a significant number of copies, there is still the feeling that it didn’t quite live up to the hype and that the buzz for the game died down merely weeks after launch. Hopefully, now that the developers have got those foundations in place they can really build on them to make a stellar experience for the sequel.
If you felt that the original Titanfall was slightly bare-bones as a package, you might be in luck. Despite Titanfall having its emphasis placed exclusively on multiplayer, there’s a considerable chance that the sequel will incorporate a single player campaign since, when asked about said mode, Abbie simply replied “we’ve definitely heard the feedback.”
