Titanfall 2 developer Respawn took a moment between launching DLC's to talk about their future plans for the franchise and the company as a whole.
Titanfall has always been and remains a huge part of our studio. With two highly-rated Titanfall games under our belts, we’re very proud of what we’ve made and the foundation we’ve laid for the franchise. Titanfall 2 remains healthy and growing with new players coming in every week. Right now we’re focused on the long term future of Titanfall and we’re excited about it. The core Titanfall team is working away on lots of cool stuff, whether that be DLC for Titanfall 2, action blocks and prototypes for future Titanfall projects, or other crazy science experiments. We’re just getting started, and we can’t wait to take you, our Community, along for this ride.
With regards to DLC for Titanfall 2, the studio remains committed to supporting the game with free content alongside new Prime Titans, store items, and more. They will be revealing the first details regarding their DLC content soon, on the 23rd of March, and in April, Respawn wants to lay down a roadmap for Titanfall 2's support over the next few months.
Outside of the studio, the team is exploring new ideas that expand the Titanfall universe with partners like Nexon -- who is currently working on other Titanfall projects, including a free-to-play version of Titanfall for Korea -- and mobile devs. "They’ve got some exciting stuff in the works that we’ll be talking about in the near future", Respawn says.
The studio is also working on a Star Wars title, helmed by Stig Asmussen, a veteran of the God of War franchise. That projects is confidential, so don't expect news about it soon. Respawn does plan on creating a better bond with the community, though, and starting next month, they'll be providing regular content that gives insight into the people and work they do at Respawn, such as Q&A video series, developer blogs, and more. They hope that creates a more satisfying feedback loop to players, so that their voices feel heard.
All in all, it looks like a quite solid plan meant to get in touch with a very dedicated playerbase. That's remarkable effort from the part of Respawn, and only right, too.
Titanfall 2 is out now on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
