Get ready for Titanfall, PlayStation owners. Respawn Founder and CEO Vince Zampella has revealed that Titanfall 2 is in the works and that it will release on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
Zampella confirmed the coming of Titanfall 2 with IGN before the BAFTA awards tonight.
“I guess EA announced a sequel, so I could play coy and pretend I don’t know anything about it, or… yeah. So we’re working on a sequel. No official name yet, but we’re working on that. That’s the main focus but we’re starting up a second team and doing some smaller stuff too. Small, exploratory, taking it slow! It’ll be multiplatform.”
IGN didn’t get too much from the team about what to expect from the next game in the Titanfall series, though they did say they intend to expand the lore of the game. That sounds good to me. There was a “story” in the background of Titanfall, but the universe felt far too underserviced.
Finally, Zampella indicated that he’d like to stop charging for maps in DLC. That’s right, maps in the new Titanfall could very well be free.
“I think that’s a fantastic way to do it…I think having the maps like that in packs, it does split the community and it makes it harder for matchmaking, it’s messy. Yeah. I don’t know we won’t do it again, I can’t say that for sure, but the idea would be to do something different.”
You might think that a company like EA wouldn’t do free maps, but I challenge that notion by pointing towards Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare. That game saw tons of free map launches following release.
So, Titanfall 2, PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Excited?
