Titanfall (2014) was a large hit with gamers, and was an addictive first person shooter for the Xbox and PC. I was a great fan of it, and was disappointed when the fanbase began to shrink because of Titanfall’s small amount of content in comparison to other games. The game lacked a single-player campaign, and as the game developers stated:
“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,’ we knew all the answers, we just could not deliver it.”
Titanfall 2 however has been announced to have a singe-player campaign and gritty storyline thanks to an interview with Jesse Stern, lead writer. Woohoo! Titanfall 2 is supposedly going to release late 2016 thanks to information from McFarlane Toys, who have revealed they will be creating a seven inch tall toy line for Titanfall during Winter 2016. McFarlane are well known for their other figures from brands such as Halo and Assassin’s Creed, so this is definitely exciting news.
It has also been rumoured that Titanfall 2 might be developed for multiple platforms by an interview with Vince Zampella, rather than exclusively for the Xbox and PC. This expanse to the PlayStation Market may help widen Titanfall’s fanbase, which can’t be bad for profits.
Jason West and Vince Zampella, the founders of Infinity Ward who developed the popular Call of Duty games, fell out with Activision and went on to create Respawn Entertainment which then developed Titanfall. They certainly seem to be going the extra mile after the original Titanfall was received with such high praise for its unique approach to gameplay with a mix of fast paced ground combat and lumbering Mech fighting. Respawn Entertainment has now established a franchise which will continue to expand and grow. We can only wait and see what additions they make to the upcoming game.
