In a current interview, Respawn director Vince Zampella revealed that Titanfall sequence director Steve Fukuda is engaged on one thing new for the writer.
Director of each Titainfall and Titanfall 2, Fukuda, has joined arms with Respawn to work on a model new IP, in response to Zampella (Axios Gaming (opens in new tab)). The crew is presently very small and within the fledgling phases of growing a brand new undertaking. Up to now, “the mission is to seek out the enjoyable in one thing new”, Zampella stated.
After the large success of Respawn’s Star Wars Jedi: Survivor listening to that the famend developer is engaged on one more IP is good news. Nonetheless, I’d be mendacity if I stated I wasn’t at the least barely unhappy to listen to that this subsequent title gained’t stick with it the Titanfall sequence.
Conflict of the Titans
The thought of discovering one thing “new” that was emphasised all through the interview sadly implies that followers of the mech-based FPS gained’t be getting a 3rd instalment regardless of fixed pleas. It’s been fairly some time for the reason that sequel’s launch in 2016, however it appears like followers are going to have to attend slightly longer.
Respawn isn’t keen to hurry into Titanfall 3, “it must be the best factor,” stated Zampella. “It is such a beloved franchise for the followers and likewise for us. If it isn’t the best second in time, the best concept, then it simply does not make sense.”
Titan your seatbelts
Whereas it appears unlikely that followers will get any extra Titanfall content material in the meanwhile, it’s not not possible to see a brand new IP set in the identical universe. In reality, the fast-paced FPS title Apex Legends shares a universe with the beloved mech-fighting FPS sequence Titanfall.
Because of this lots of the greatest components of Titanfall, whether or not that be the mech-based fight or excessive manoeuvrability, could be boiled down and utilized in a separate IP with out coming off as plagiarism. All I ask is that I can as soon as once more zipline and wallride via enemy groups after which lastly name my Mech to land on their heads.
There’s no concrete plans as of but to merge these two worlds collectively, however at this stage, after ready for thus lengthy for a 3rd Titanfall recreation, I’ll fortunately take no matter I can get, even when that may be a new IP set in the identical universe.
