Respawn Entertainment’s Vince Zampella has admitted that Titanfall 3 may not happen despite the strong critical reception to this year’s PlayStation 4 and Xbox One actioner, Titanfall 2.
Speaking with Glixel, Zampella acknowledged the game’s positive reception among critics, but couldn’t say for sure if a third instalment in the series would see the light of day. Nonetheless, there’s more stories to tell if given the opportunity.
Will Titanfall 3 ever happen?
"The game is, critically, a huge success," he said. "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. EA might have announced more. Devin?"
For reference, Zampella is talking to an EA publicist, who interjects with: “What we’ve said is we’re committed to the franchise.”
“So, whatever the f**k that means,” replied Zampella. He also conceded he would have liked to have seen Titanfall 2 released in a period to itself, rather than being stacked between EA’s own Battlefield 1 and competing shooter, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.
"It’s always a concern [that they’ll put more of their muscle behind the games they own]. That’s what I’ll say. Especially when you have two games on top of each other."
Titanfall 2 was released for PS4, PC, and Xbox One in October, and is the follow-up to the original mech-based shooter released for Xbox formats back in 2014. Unlike its predecessor, Titanfall 2 incorporates a full-fledged single-player campaign in addition to the online multiplayer features.
