Singleplayer lead director for Titanfall 2 campaign confirmed (i hope).

Glad to see he's landed on his feet, Respawn are lucky to have him. Congrats to the both of them.


I don't think it would be pointless at all. One of the main complaints about TF is how bare-bones it is, adding a quality campaign mode instead of the awful "campaign missions" the game has now, would benefit it greatly imo. It would also help justify the price. With Stig behind the wheel, it could have an epic campaign mode.

Titanfall doesn't need a single player. It would be pointless. I like the fact that they have a highly multiplayer focus and they should grow on that. The things they need to improve are the graphics, launch with more maps and modes, and build a new game on an improved engine. Other than that I see a nice future for Respawn.

^^If/when Titanfall 2 comes out, I'd welcome a single player aspect if it was actually good.

Funny you say respawn is multiplayer focused, but then in turn name tons of things they need to do to improve the multiplayer.

is it true Stig's cancelled project cost Sony that much money or was it just insider talk??

Anyway great to see him again, did great with God of War 3

Would love to see his work on Titanfall 2

he sat beside me in the sony booth at the order 1886, when I saw the respawn shirt i was laughing and he smiled. Then he was chilling with a bunch of sony guys in the booth for a while and they were all happy to see him, I can say this... Titan Fall is coming to PS4, I have good hearing.

I've never liked the GOW series, so I'm not really affected by this signing. The one thing I will praise is the amount of scope he was able to get out of those games. Glad to see Respawn growing. Titanfall breathed new life in FPS games and is easily my favorite shooter since Halo 3.

"Titanfall breathed new life in FPS games"

How by adding mechs? Something that has been done in shooters already and done better?
gamerfan0909  +   531d ago
Done better? Like what? Oh please. The game plays so much faster than any FPS on the market and plays so much better. If you never played the game then don't comment. Fanboy idiot.
metatronx  +   530d ago
@gamerfan lol u r the fanboy. He/she was just expressing his opinion and you already jumped to a conclusion that he/she is a fanboy.
SoulSercher620  +   530d ago
LMAO fanboy idiot? Why don't you try playing Starhawk which does EVERYTHING better than Titanfall?

16 vs. 16
Bigger maps
More vehicles
Better mech

Oh I'm gonna guess you never played that game either. Whose the idiot now dumbass?

Starhawk is awful. The fact that you even bring the game up is hilarious. The game doesn't play for feel anything like Titanfall. It's mediorce at best. The mech combat is so much more superior in titanfall compared to starhawk that you have to either A. never played Titanfall or 2. just troll on here.
Funantic1  +   531d ago
Respawn actually already have a few people that worked on the GOW, Uncharted, and Resistance series. He should feel right at home.

Not really into FPS anymore unless its name is Halo or Destiny, but if Titanfall 2 has a single player that Stig worked on I will defenitly consider buying it.
Snappy  +   531d ago
Just played 3 hours of Destiny boy is that game fun
Bathyj  +   531d ago
Stig. Such a cool name.

Asmussen. Not so much.
CorruptBoyd  +   531d ago
I hope they include the wildlife in the campaign as some kind of enemy, as well as the militia.
Pinkdolphinyfg  +   531d ago
Interesting that he's been there for a couple of months and isn't working on Titanfall. New ip?
DigitalRaptor  +   530d ago
Good for him.

Sounds like he'll be returning to PlayStation, if you can guess what I mean.
