The practice of turning popular shooters into free-to-play titles for the Asian market isn't exactly, so it's not totally surprising to see Titanfall make that transition.
Electronic Arts and Korean publishermade the announcement earlier today, confirming that the adaptation will be reworked on by both original developer Respawn and Nexon's own development studio.
A few mech-happy folks might have been hoping thatwould release Titanfall 2 this year – unfortunately they'll have to wait to get their next fix of Titan vs. Titan action.
In an EA investors call that took place yesterday, an official from the company revealed that the sequel probably won't make the fiscal year 2016; “Your assumption should be 17,” said CFO Blake Jorgensen.
Hot on the heels of the announcement that Titanfall's DLC map packsfor all players, comes some more good news for fans of the shooter franchise.
CEO Vince Zampella has confirmed to IGN that Titanfall 2 is already in development, also revealing that a second team would split off from the sequel project to work on “smaller stuff.”
As a celebration of the one year anniversary of, developer Respawn have decided to give away all the game's DLC Map Packs for free. While previously this deal was limited to the Xbox One and 360 versions, PC owners now can get the gift too.
There's something non-Titanfall happening at the Titanfall HQ of, and heading the studio's smaller second team is God of War 3 director Stig Asmussen. They're approaching it "with an open mind."
Will it be a shooter? Action? First or third-person? Right now Respawn founder Vince Zampella isn't saying, and there's unlikely to be anything revealed at this years' E3.
