Titanfall fans, I hate to be the bearer of bad news given I’m a huge fan of the franchise, but don’t expect a new Titanfall game anytime soon. Backing up what a Respawn Entertainment dev said last year, Respawn boss Vince Zampella confirmed that no new Titanfall game is being developed.
Speaking in an interview with IGN, Zampella was asked about whether we’ll see Titanfall again, and he had this to say:
There’s nothing currently in development,” he said. “But it’s always there. You see the little bits of stuff coming back [through the lore in Apex Legends]. At some point, I would personally like to see some kind of resurrection there. We’ll see if I can make that happen.
That’s a bummer, but here’s some good news: it looks like DICE LA, which Zampella was tapped to head as a new studio, is making a shooter — though Zampella won’t outright confirm it. Talking about the studio, Zampella mentioned that the dev team there is a “shooter team.”
That team is a shooter team…Chances are it’s going to be something along those lines
There’s a lot of really good shooter talent there. But I don’t want to lock it in and say that’s definitely exactly what they’re doing, because we’re going to look at everything and pick something that feels amazing. The same tenets that apply to Respawn of doing something new and exciting and kind of breaking the genre a little bit is what we’re going to apply to DICE LA. We’re going to look at trying to do something cool
We want to do something that’s not competitive with other EA games so that we’re kind of filling in the right gaps in the portfolio. We have some really good ideas, but it’ll be a little bit [before they make any announcements].
I wouldn’t say no to a Medal of Honor reboot by DICE LA with Zampella heading it, no? As for Titanfall, I truly do hope we see another entry in the franchise given how fantastic Titanfall 2 is. We dig that game so much that we’ve included it in our best multiplayer shooter of the decade list.
Speaking of Zampella, he also penned a letter to the community earlier today that talked about Respawn’s 10th year anniversary.
