Titanfall 2 might not be the final title in Respawn’s mecha shooter series, as was initially thought. Respawn’s founder and CEO, Vince Zampella, told IGN that, though the studio may not have thought out specific plans for a Titanfall trilogy, the team’s hope is that Respawn can work towards developing more games for the series after Titanfall 2 and their upcoming mobile games.
In the video interview, Zampella continues to expand on the same and says,
We don’t have necessarily a trilogy in mind. You always hope when you create something that it’s embraced and that people will love it for generations to come, I hope we do more of it. We probably plan to do more–as you know, we have the mobile games as well.
I would like to see the universe live on. I think it’s very expandable. I think there’s a lot we can do with it. There’s a lot of great ideas floating around here [at Respawn] that I would love to see come to life.
The first Titanfall title for the mobile platform, Frontline, is a free-to-play card based game for both iOS and Android. It will come out later this year, as a major part of Respawn’s recent partnership with renowned mobile gaming giant, Nexon.
Also part of the above mentioned interview, Zampella was questioned on whether the 2014 original Titanfall will ever come to PlayStation 4. Yeah, don’t count on it. “I believe we are limited in our ability to do that,” he stated, potentially referring to the exclusivity deal the game’s publisher had earlier with Microsoft.
When the subject of the relationship between Respawn and Microsoft was brought up, Zampella stated that Microsoft was a magnificent partner and that Titanfall would never have existed if it weren’t for them. At the same time, Zampella also said that he thought Respawn, at some point, would be capable of putting Titanfall on PS4 — but that obviously couldn’t happen.
