Respawn Confirms Multiplatform Titanfall 2
in the Works

Developer confirms earlier hints at sequel from publisher EA.

Update: In an interview with IGN ahead of the BAFTA Game Awards, Respawn co-founder Vince Zampella confirmed that "we're working on a sequel" to Titanfall, and that "it'll be multiplatform." Respawn COO Dusty Welch added that the original game was a Microsoft console exclusive primarily for business reasons; the title would have been "prohibitive" as a multiplatform release, he said.

Zampella added that Respawn was branching out to other projects as well, "starting up a second team and doing some smaller stuff too." He also expressed interest in a model that added maps as free DLC, rather than splitting the community through a series of paid maps.

Original Story (Feb. 12, 2015)

The expected follow-up to last year's rocketpack-packed shooter Titanfall likely won't be exclusive to Microsoft platforms, according to EA CFO Blake Jorgensen. Speaking at the company's own Technology, Internet, & Media conference earlier this week (as noticed by IGN), Jorgensen used the word "probably" to describe both the sequel's existence as an EA-published title and its availability on other consoles.

"Last year it was on the Xbox only; in the future, we haven't yet announced, but we'll probably have another Titanfall game," Jorgensen said. "It will probably be a bigger footprint than just a single platform. I think that's a huge positive for us."

Jorgensen's statement follows on a Wall Street Journal story from last June, which cited an unnamed "person close to the development" in reporting that a Titanfall sequel was in the works and that it would be coming to the PlayStation 4 in addition to other platforms.

First announced as a Microsoft console exclusive back in June of 2013, Titanfall launched last March on Xbox One and PC, with an Xbox 360 release following the next month. The game topped NPD's US sales charts for two months before dropping down to eighth place in May of 2014. EA reported that Titanfall had attracted at least eight million unique players across all platforms by the end of last year.

In December, when Capcom announced Street Fighter V as a PlayStation 4 exclusive, Microsoft Head of Xbox Phil Spencer said he'd rather invest in first-party titles than third-party exclusives, when possible. Still, Square Enix's Rise of the Tomb Raider will be a timed exclusive on the Xbox One thanks to a business arrangement with Microsoft.

Last August, Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli expressed unhappiness with the sales of Xbox One launch exclusive Ryse: Son of Rome, saying any sequel would have to wait for a "higher installed base across next-gen."

The PlayStation 4 had shipped at least roughly seven million more consoles than the Xbox One by the end of 2014, according to an Ars Technica analysis, and represents at least 47 percent of all "new generation" consoles shipped thus far, including the Wii U.
