It’s too early to tell whether a sequel to Titanfall 2 will ever see the light of day, according to developer Respawn Entertainment’s CEO Vince Zampella.
In a detailed interview with Glixel (via GameSpot) in regards to the future of the series and the difficulty of releasing a shooter amid the presence of some stiff competition, Zampella said that while the team at Respawn Entertainment has plenty of ideas for the series going forward, he’s simply not sure whether the studio will ever get the chance to make them.
“We don’t know yet,” admits Zampella when asked about a potential Titanfall 3, adding that while Titanfall 2 has enjoyed a generous helping of critical praise, it’s too early to tell how well it has fared in the sales department. “The game is, critically, a huge success. We’re really happy with all the reviews and the positive sentiment. Sales, it’s too early to tell. We’d definitely like to tell more of the story and the universe. I think it’s pretty safe to assume that we’ll explore more of it.”
It’s no secret that Titanfall 2 has struggled to make an impact in sales charts, with reports suggesting that sales of the sequel have barely managed to reach a quarter of the original. Publisher EA has since stepped in though to emphasize that the Titanfall IP is one that it’s committed to over the long run, with short-term sales performance not being of the utmost importance.
