Hot on the heels of the announcement that Titanfall's DLC map packs will be free for all players, comes some more good news for fans of the shooter franchise.
Respawn 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.”
"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," Zampella confirmed. "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."
Zampella was coy about whether the next game would feature the same quasi-singleplayer campaign that many disliked in the original, but did admit that Respawn “could have mixed things up a bit better.” He also revealed that the developer is looking at alternate methods of distributing new maps, possibly moving over to a free model like the one Turtle Rock's Evolve uses.
"I think that's a fantastic way to do it," he said. "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."
