There has been very little news regarding the rumored Titanfall 2, and the current barrage of news from EA has come out as a surprise to fans of the long-awaited sequel. EA has officially confirmed that there is a development for the popular shooter, and they have given important details about the game in an interview with Forbes.
In an interview with Forbes, Lead Designer Jesse Stern has revealed that Titanfall 2 will have a single-player campaign and that there will be a spin-off TV Series.
One of the major downfalls of the original game was the lack of a single player campaign and the reason for the lack of inclusion was due to a very limited amount of funds and resources. However, the announcement of both the campaign and the TV Series means that fans of the series will be able to get their fill of the story behind Titanfall that was otherwise nonexistent in the first game.
“What inspires us is the junction of technological advancement with the inevitability of conflict and war and what the next war might look like. In Titanfall 2 there will be a lot of [scenes] where science meets magic, but keeping it grounded and dirty and human and real.”
Stern also stated that the multiplayer combat would be “even better” than the original and it will be cross-platform as opposed to being Xbox and PC exclusive.
The TV show is in the works at Lionsgate. Stern actually worked as a writer for NCIS for five seasons so this is not his first time writing a TV series. However, there are not many details regarding the TV series or many regarding Titanfall 2.
Titanfall 2 has been in development since late 2014, though Stern is unsure whether we will see it launch later in 2016 or early 2017, though we do know that EA has confirmed that the game will launch prior to March 31st, 2017 which is the end of that fiscal year.
