It appears that Respawn Entertainment’s sci-fi shooter Titanfall has already performed well enough to warrant a sequel.
According to “a reputable source,” EA has secured rights to Titanfall 2, says GameSpot.
Other than a sharp increase in Xbox One sales in the UK, no official Titafall sales numbers have been announced by EA, but the source indicates that the decision to secure sequel rights was based on a well-received launch. “We do not comment on rumor or speculation,” said EA. “Right now all our focus is on supporting all the fans worldwide enjoying Titanfall.”
Though the original was destined to remain an Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC exclusive for the entirety of its life time, EA later expressed interest in eventually bringing the IP to other platforms as well. Respawn CEO Vince Zampella also mentioned he “could see a sequel working, absolutely,” in an interview earlier this month.
Earlier today, Titanfall’s Xbox 360 version was delayed yet again to April 8.
