Titanfall 2 confirmed, coming to Xbox One, PS4 and PC

Respawn founder and CEO Vince Zampella has confirmed Titanfall 2 is in development and will be released on multiple platforms.

Speaking to IGN ahead of tonight's BAFTA Game Awards, Zampella, whose title is nominated in three categories, acknowledged the game's existence for the first time.

The story is too old to be commented.

Sweet I hope it has a campaign to go along with the multiplayer, definitely wanna try it

AngelicIceDiamond890d ago

They might do a campaign.

But I wouldn't be surprised if they stuck with MP only and improving that.

If that's the case TF2 better be HUGE then.

nX890d ago (Edited 890d ago )

It really needs bigger maps (10v10 at least) and I wouldn't mind if they'd remove the stupid bots.

Funny how he openly regrets making TF1 Xbox exclusive though.

WCxAlchemist890d ago (Edited 890d ago )

Get rid of bots

alot more weapons instead of a handful

abillity to fully customize ur Titan not jus stickers you cant see

Larger actual player count

alot more attachments for weapons

Pilot classes that actually means something

Titan classes that means something not big slow Titan, balance Titan and Fast but weak Titan.Jus lazy

More creative Maps

Lastly a damn campain to tell the story

@Mr Pumble TF is NOT MS biggest exclusive LoL heard of Halo or Gears of War Lmao

Mr Pumblechook890d ago (Edited 890d ago )

PR-wise this is a loss for Microsoft as they have now lost their biggest third-party Xbox One exclusive. However before the dedicated fans make a mountain out of a molehill, going multiplatform is actually a great thing for the Titanfall franchise. More new customers means Respawn will have potentially more profits so can get more investment in advance to build a better game.

I remember in early 2014 Titanfall was being heavily promoted by Microsoft everywhere as the game that would help them get a lead over the PS4. Reviews were good but it didn't help the Xbox One get that elusive NPD lead and it meant less people got on board with the franchise at the start.

"if you're saying what would we have liked to have done? The opportunity to be multiplatform could have made it even more significant for us."
Zampella's comments suggest he was pretty upset that EA cut him out of the loop and released the game only on Xbox 360 and XBO.

@Bloodborn. I agree bigger player count is a must.

Well the Bots are just cannon fodder. They don't add or take away from the game but you can kill them to add points.

Though the last time I played it the bots seemed to have gotten tougher, strangely enough.

They're just filler for the game to make it seem like the worlds were bigger. Plus they did have "story characters" in the game but they were bots lol.

I don't mind them.

"Funny how he openly regrets making TF1 Xbox exclusive though."

Where did he make that statement?

Neonridr890d ago (Edited 890d ago )

@Angelic - he didn't. Bloodborn is just trying to stir up trouble. Zampella says he wishes he could have made the game multiplatform, but for business reasons, couldn't and he was ok with that.

What developer wouldn't want their game on as many platforms as possible? Time constraints, budgets and publishing rights sometimes prevent developers from doing whatever they want though.

Mr Pumblechook890d ago

@WCxAlchemist Hi WC! Of course Halo and Gears are bigger than Titanfall, but they are FIRST-party exclusives which means Microsoft owns them.

However Titanfall 1 is a THIRD-party exclusive, meaning it's owned by another company EA/Respawn. Sunset Overdrive was not a bigger third-party exclusive than Titanfall.

nX890d ago

^"When asked whether or not the team wishes they could change anything about the original product, Respawn COO Dusty Welch said, "Platform for me comes to mind right away."

That was his first thought, he could've said countless things yet he chose to say this right away... moments after announcing a sequel - are you telling me this is not regret in it's purest form?

AngelicIceDiamond890d ago

@Blood I don't think that's regret. They wanted as many ppl to play this. MS had the back end cloud to supply them with (I know cloud talk)

Plus Respawn as of a year ago was a small studio partially funded by EA and MS. They easily have enough resources to put this game on PS4.

Its not a regret when MS supplied with everything they needed. They just wish it ended up on PS4.

TheCommentator890d ago (Edited 890d ago )

@MrPumblecock

Respawn initially said the reason Titanfall was exclusive was that the studio was too small to make it multiplatform, and they wanted to focus on making the game as good as possible on one console. They even said they wanted the game to be on all consoles at that time. It was Respawn's choice, not EA's.

Septic890d ago (Edited 890d ago )

Yes!! Now we can focus less on hating it and more on the game itself. Titanfall is amazing.

Titanfall 2 can be incredible. So much potential.

Cream890d ago

The game is solid.
I don't need a campaign!

PONTIAC08G8GT890d ago

Single player is not needed. This is a game that is made for MP. I enjoyed the MP campaign.

Does anyone understand why the bots are in the game? Not everyone is a hardcore, put in 100 hours, win or go home type of player. The casual player enjoys being able to go online and feel like they did something. They do serve some function. They will blow up your arc mines, take down your titans shields, you can hack them to run around with you, killing them can reduce your build and titan core ability. Everyone thinks they just stand there and serve no purpose but they actually add to the gameplay. I'd like to see 8v8, 10v10 is the max. As it is now, when 10 titans are on the map at once it's overwhelming and you cant really move in some maps. But the small maps are great. Making the maps bigger, removing the bots, and upping the player count isn't exactly a recipe for success.

nix890d ago

BOOOM!!!

we all saw it coming though..

LexHazard79890d ago

Mr.Pumblechook,

I don't think this is a huge loss for MS like you say. I agree with you tho that it better off multi platform. I wonder if it will have cross play.
When it comes over to PS4 it will easily be one of its better fps, imo.

Palitera890d ago (Edited 890d ago )

@Bloodborn

He actually said that releasing it as a MS exclusive was the right choice.

But, yes, some people can't deal very well with facts.

-

Also, what is all this talk about cloud computing? They are not making Titanfall for PS4. It is Titanfall 2.

Not that I fall for that talk, but you guys are talking pure non-sense. It is a different game on the same franchise.

WelkinCole890d ago (Edited 890d ago )

@angel.

It is regret for many reasons.

Titanfall had a chance to establish itself early in this console gen as a huge franchise that can rival destiny, watch dogs and going up against COD for EA.

In terms of establishment they have failed compare to these other major franchise simply because it is not on the dominate console this gen. To be fair I do believe like many analyst did believe that the X1 would be leading this gen. A big gamble that they lost on and rightly so regret now.

Acti and Ubi got it right for both destiny and Watch dogs. How you establish a new multi-plat franchise is by having it early on a console gen and have it on as many platforms as possible.

This will give you the best footing for your franchise going forward for the rest of the gen like now for both Destiny and Watch dogs as they are both established on all major platform including the dominate one which happens to be the PS4.

Not only Titanfall will have to establish itself on the PS4 but also they will compete with these other established 3rd party franchise and not to mentioned Sony's own established 1st party that will start releasing 1-3 years after launch.

There is no point it trying to sugarcoat it. EA messed up a huge opportunity to have another IP that would have a good chance of competing with Acti COD.

Crimzon890d ago

This is great news. I've played some Titanfall on PC and it's definitely one of the best games released so far this generation. A lot of creativity and innovation in that game, and it's just genuinely fun and enjoyable to play as well. It was frustrating being limited to such a small community on PC (it seems a lot of PC gamers don't like using Origin, which the game was exclusive to) but it's one of few games from recent memory that truly felt like it was using the extra power to do something unique and innovative.

I can't wait for the sequel to hit PS4, this game will be up there alongside Uncharted 4 and Metal Gear Solid V as one of my most anticipated games :D I couldn't care less about the inclusion of a singleplayer mode either, I prefer a focus on multiplayer since that will always have greater replayability, and the competitive and cooperative multiplayer in the first game is really enjoyable.

Really looking forward to seeing what they do with Titanfall 2, they have such a strong foundation to build on.

kingfetish17890d ago

Sweet! I get to play against more Japanese & European players with the PS4 version!

bouzebbal890d ago

to me they could have kept it on x1 and PC. What i saw of the first one didn't catch me at all.
Out of those who say it's amazing how many are playing it today?

MysticStrummer890d ago

@Angelic - Yeah I bet they stick with MP mainly, maybe have a lengthy co-op campaign but I wouldn't expect a SP story mode. Who knows though?

@Neonridr - "Zampella says he wishes he could have made the game multiplatform, but for business reasons, couldn't"

That's regret. He wishes it could have been multiplatform. How is that not regret? It's not downing XB1 or praising another platform, but he wishes the first game had been multiplat.

ctmaudi890d ago

Im sorry, but have to say it. TF2 will always be Team Fortress 2 :). Titanfall needs a new abbreviation, like TTF/TTF2.

badz149890d ago

Multiplat for the next one ha? No campaign, no buy from me though. Although crappy campaigns like BF3 and BF4 are also highly indesirable.

XisThatKid890d ago

Thought this was already a thing. Considering the property rights between EA and MS court stuff last year.

UnHoly_One889d ago (Edited 889d ago )

I loved Titanfall, but all the requests I'm seeing here are basically asking for the game to NOT be Titanfall.

People want it to be CoD with Mechs, apparently, which is exactly what they made fun of Titanfall for being in the first place.

majorw2889d ago

Respawn originally planned to release the game on PS3 and PS4 also, they chose the Source game engine specifically to allow that:

Respawn chose to build Titanfall on the Source game engine early in their production cycle due to their developers' familiarity and its ability to maintain 60 frames per second on both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. In an interview, Respawn software engineer Richard Baker said the company chose Source since Portal 2 performed well on the PlayStation 3 with it, and the console was "the riskiest platform in current gen".

I played Titanfall on the PC. Its a fun shooter, but I would have enjoyed it a lot more if it had an actual campaign story.

I dont think anyone is surprised that Titanfall 2 is breaking exclusivity with xbox and coming to PS4. It was pretty much hinted at for months.

Kleptic890d ago Show
spacewarrior1890d ago

this was always going to happen. just look at COD advanced warfare which sold 6 million on the PS4 alone which is almost double what Titanfall sold on PC, 360 and Xbox One at only 4 million. not that it matters as Titanfall is the definition of overhype. the game had more hype than GTAV and only 4 million ? lol.

rainslacker890d ago

I would have played it on PC, but I don't care for MP games. If it had a SP campaign I would have given it a shot. Otherwise, no story in a mech game, well that just makes it a FPS with vehicles and a different viewpoint....and FPS is probably my least favorite genre. I do love mechs though.

DLConspiracy890d ago

The only reason exclusivity existed is because MS swooped in to save the project from not happening. It was always planned to be on all platforms. I wish it had. Unfortunately though when PS didn't get back to Respawn about porting a ps4 version. It was because PS was being secretive about their console. By that time it was too late. They even talked about a Vita version too. Respawn needed money to finish the game and MS helped. That's where exclusivity came from. It probably would have been timed exclusive for Xbox one had Sony gotten back.

Its all in the "Final Hours of Titanfall" you can pick it up online for cheap if not free. I believe you can still get it on Steam.

It better have more guns to unlock that's why I stopped playing the first one.

You have like 3 assault rifles in the game if not less I think the other is just an smg. An coming from the guys that made Modern warfare 1 that is a huge disappoint.

xDHAV0K24x890d ago

as long as it's not like COD then it can work
