Vince Zampella, co-founder of Respawn, says the studio is unsure if there will be a Titanfall 3.
In an interview with Glixel, he was asked if they will make another Titanfall game. His answer was as follows:
We don’t know yet. The game is, critically, a huge success. We’re really happy with all the reviews and the positive sentiment. Sales, it’s too early to tell. We’d definitely like to tell more of the story and the universe. I think it’s pretty safe to assume that we’ll explore more of it. EA might have announced more. Devin?
[Devin Bennett, a publicist for Electronic Arts, interjects, “What we’ve said is we’re committed to the franchise.”]
So, whatever the **** that means.
Titanfall 2 launched to impressive reviews praising the game. However, the sales did not match with the overly positive reviews, even with the additional PS4 release for the title. Looking at the release of the game, it may be obvious why this happened. Titanfall was released sandwiched in between two of the years largest shooters, Battlefield 1 and Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.
When asked about the release time, Zampella responded:
“If the question was, ‘Would I rather have this window to myself?’ Well, of course, I’m not foolish. I’m not foolish that way, anyway. In other ways, probably.”
The interview is full of a lot of interesting information on Zampella’s ideas of what he wants in gaming, and is worth reading through.
