And potentially a TV show too…
The lead writer for the upcoming sequel to Titanfall has revealed that the game will feature an entire single-player campaign separate from the multiplayer components. This represents a change-up from the original game, which was a multiplayer only experience.
In an interview with Forbes magazine, Respawn Entertainment’s Jesse Stern admitted that “one of the shortcomings of the first game was we just did not have the mechanism to tell everyone ‘here’s who you are, here’s where you are, and who’s around you”.
According to Stern, the story will attempt to “deliver a vision of grand global colonial warfare” and reimagine “the story of the American Revolution and the American Civil War in space”.
Stern also indicated that the studio are working with Lionsgate to look into the potential for a companion television series to launch in conjunction with the release of Titanfall 2, though he digressed that such a project “would be very expensive”.
Respawn Entertainment have been working on the sequel to their Xbox One launch title, a multiplayer first person shooter featuring giant player-controlled mechs, since 2014, though no word has been given on any official release date as of yet.
What we do know is that the game will launch on all major platforms this time around, with even a spin-off mobile game in the works for a 2016 launch.
