Respawn Entertainment: Making Titanfall

Respawn Entertainment has smashed all award records for their upcoming debut game Titanfall, in our latest For The Win interview Jessica Chobot talks to the team about the studio's origin's and their pedigree for making some of the biggest FPS games of all time!

The starting point for Respawn Entertainment was not as easy and straightforward as you might expect. An ongoing lawsuit coupled with the stress of starting a new company has required a lot of determination and experience to reach the point that Respawn has today. In the beginning, staff had nothing to work with but a derelict building, some fold-out chairs and their passion for creating games.

The reaction to the first Titanfall trailer back at E3 2013 has only added to the motivation of the staff, many of whom had no idea how gamers would react. From a team with FPS experience ranging from Medal of Honor to Call of Duty however; it comes as no surprise that they are developing a title with plenty of hype and expectations.

I am happy for these guys. They haven't released yet, but the hype alone will sell millions.

If it is as good as previews will have us believe, this could be a very successful franchise.

Urgg the hype for this game is killing me.. I didn't actually want the beta to start on Valentines day however I just want to try this game out for myself so badly. Every preview from people playing it says it's awesome however I'm still not convinced from what I've seen and heard about the mechanics. The beta can't come soon enough tbh.

Although the late 2000s Turok wasn't my favorite, I would love a new entry. Open world survival with shotguns and dinosaurs. Not sure how we'd get the fusion cannon, but that would be pretty sweet too.

All of these games are pretty much universally praised. Outside of Timeshift I literally own all of these.

XIII, The Darkness 2, Far Cry: Blood Dragon, Timesplitters: future perfect, Bulletstorm are awesome games


An ode to Titanfall: The last twitch shooter I'll probably ever enjoy

Windows Central: "Titanfall 1 is being sunset, taken off storefronts by EA. While the servers remain live for now, one has to wonder just how much time it has left. I look back and pay tribute to the last "twitch"-styled shooter I ever truly loved."

Physical media. Unfortunately the way games are going these days game servers will eventually be shut down and you can stare at the menu and wish you could play the game again.

This is why reading is so important. Nothing to do with digital or physical media. The game, which is online only, is being delisted because of DDOS and other hacker attacks. The case got so bad that only six players in the world log on. For PC. Rather than fix it, they continued to sell the game, broken as it is, and only now just decided to call it quits. But please, go on thinking what you will.

I'm aware of the DDOS attacks and that this case is not typical. This game would eventually have it's servers shutdown regardless of the current situation so that is a moot point. My comment was in a general sense and that there are instances in which games can be preserved physically when official support ends.

Let's recap your first sentence. I said, "the way GAMES are going these days" indicating a broader stroke than just this game. I agree, reading IS important. I was simply stating the obvious downsides of the digital marketplaces and online only trends in games these days. I could even make the argument that the online only offering which has allowed hacker manipulation has impacted the preservation of this great game. My comment is valid in the general sense and thank you for your permission to continue to think what I will.
