Respawn Uncertain About Titanfall's Future
Titanfall 2 developer Respawn Entertainment is unsure if the franchise has a future, according to a Glixel interview with Respawn CEO Vince Zampella.
When asked if Respawn will make another Titanfall game Zampella said the following:
We don't know yet. The game is, critically, a huge success. 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.
EA publicist Devin Bennett chimed in on EA's behalf with "What we've said is we're committed to the franchise." To which Zampella responded with, "So, whatever the f*** that means."
When asked about the close releases of both Titanfall 2 and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered Zampella said, "It definitely feels a little odd. Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is from my old studio, that I built. And they're repackaging my old game that I built, on a brand that I built. So it's kinda like you're throwing it all against me."
Zampella admitted that he hadn't played a Call of Duty game since the release of Modern Warfare 2 in 2009, though he said he "will play Modern Warfare Remastered. And there's a good chance I'll play Infinite Warfare."
The Respawn CEO acknowledged that he knew Titanfall 2 faced a holiday season launch but was unaware that it would be untimely released in between Battlefield 1 and Infinite Warfare.
