Following up the good with the bad, Titanfall just can't catch a break. Titanfall: Frontline - the franchise's first mobile venture - has been cancelled.
Releasing to lacklustre sales toward the end of last year, Titanfall 2 likely fell short of EA's performance predictions when they opted to slide out the big-budget shooter alongside Call of Duty and their own Battlefield 1.
But with sales picking up closer to the holiday period, it wasn't all doom and gloom for the franchise that picked up a staggering amount of awards and media interest across its release year. To help pick up the slack, Respawn built a second company within its walls and partnered with Nexon to develop a mobile game called Titanfall: Frontline to tap into a second well of potential.

With testing scheduled to end in just 4 days time, the mobile game's webpage delivered some saddening news - the game won't be going back into development once the beta end. Though Respawn had successfully published a free-to-play version of the original Titanfall through their partnership with the gaming portal, the next leg of their deal has seemingly fallen short of expectations.
Hopefully it isn't all bad news, however, as the blog post makes mention of future projects: "While it's never easy to cancel a game, we're excited to take some of the concepts we saw resonate with players and build off of them in future Titanfall mobile games." This just wasn't the one to kick-start their dream. Those wanting the Titanfall experience on-the-go will have to wait a little while longer.
