Just last month, we reported that Electronic Arts (EA) has set out to acquire Titanfall 2 maker, Respawn Entertainment, for over $400 million. Well, in an update on the publisher’s official site, it announces that the acquisition is now complete!
On November 9, 2017 we announced an agreement to acquire Respawn Entertainment, LLC, one of the leading independent game development studio and creators of AAA shooter and action games including the critically-acclaimed Titanfall™ franchise. Today, December 1, 2017, we have completed the acquisition of Respawn on the terms previously disclosed.
That’s about it, basically. What does this mean for us, gamers? Hopefully, not loot boxes in Titanfall 3, and just a better release window for it, no? While Titanfall 2’s release was sandwiched by Battlefield 1 and Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, it still managed to sold “well.”
Do you expect any big changes to Respawn? Do you think it can manage to stave off any microtransaction mandates by EA?
