Respawn Entertainment boss Vince Zampella has said that 2016 is going to be a “very big year” for the Titanfall franchise, but what exactly does that mean? Well, it might not be exactly what you’re thinking, i.e. Titanfall 2 – EA have already stated that a sequel to the Xbox One exclusive shooter won’t be released during the current financial year, so that places a release date firmly between April 2016 and March 2017. Considering we’ve had no official announcement or teaser drop yet, we can only assume the latter date is likely to be more accurate.
But anyway, that certainly doesn’t rule out the game’s announcement early next year. Besides that, Zampella has been keen to champion Respawn’s new partnership with Nexon, which aims to bring the series to “multiple smartphone and tablet games,” taking the series “in a new direction,” according to a report by Venture Beat.
We continue to focus on Titanfall. Next year is going to be a very big year for Titanfall. For us, it is exciting to take this universe we created that is so extensible. In my head, there are so many things we can do with it. To be able to partner with Nexon and take this game to a whole new audience is really exciting.
As for Titanfall 2, though, we know that it’s happening and that it’ll be a multi-platform release this time around, but Zampella is coy about revealing any concrete details, stating that he “can’t say just yet.” He does, however, promise that the game “will be worth the wait.”
Don’t leave it too long, Respawn, we’re excited to what new features a Titanfall sequel could bring.
