I can’t believe it’s been almost 2 years since Titanfall was released on the both Xbox platforms and the PC. The game was one of the most anticipated games of the time, so much that people went out and bought Xbox One consoles just for the open beta weekend. I can clearly remember that weekend, it was pure mayhem with Titans punching and shooting everything under the sun. Catching bullets as you did a charged punch through a cloud of smoke, dealing the final blow to a Titan and then pulling out the pilot and throwing them across the field. The only downside was that the single player campaign required you to be online because it was just the multiplayer maps put in order to form a story. Most people complained and to be honest it sounds much like the current Battlefront complaint, but in the end the games are fun to play so that’s what people did. With over 10 million individual users playing the game, you could say that it was a hit.
Years had gone by and people were always looking for announcements of a sequel at the Electronic Arts press conferences during E3. Sadly nothing was announced during those events, but during an interview with Forbes Jesse Stern, the lead writer of Titanfall, gave some information on the sequel and a possible television show.
In regards to the sequel and dedicated single player campaign
We’re only a little past a year into it. It takes two years to make these things usually. Sometime late this year or early next seems like the right neighborhood. This one is going to be widely available, I believe on all platforms. 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.
In regards to hinting at a television show, Stern stated that it would be very expensive and they are currently trying to find a way to tell the story in the Titanfall universe. This was only a hint and nothing has been set in stone, so if it doesn’t happen don’t be upset. We would all love to see a huge high budget show where Titans armed with huge weapons blow everything up, but due to the cost the fights would be only about a minute or two of footage.
What we can look forward to is Titanfall as early as next year on Xbox One, PC and probably Playstation 4.
