Respawn seems to have a lot of ideas for a third Titanfall game, but it’s possible that the studio might not get to make them.
In an interview, Glixel asked Respawn CEO Vince Zampella whether Titanfall 3 is a possibility. He said that even though the game has received overwhelmingly positive critical response, it’s too soon to say how the game has done from a sales perspective.
“We don’t know yet,” Zampella said about making a third Titanfall game. “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 publicist Devin Bennett clarified that all EA has said on the subject of more Titanfall games is that the publisher is “committed to the franchise.” “So, whatever the f*** that means,” Zampella replied.
Recently, in October, Vince Zampella had said that Titanfall is not necessarily meant to be a trilogy. “You always hope when you create something that it’s embraced and that people will love it for generations to come,” he said. “I hope we do more of it. We probably plan to do more–as you know, we have the mobile games as well. I would like to see the universe live on. I think it’s very expandable. I think there’s a lot we can do with it. There’s a lot of great ideas floating around here that I would love to see come to life.”
Additionally, this year Activision remastered Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, a game that Zampella had worked on at Infinity Ward before Activision fired him. When asked if it was weird for Titanfall 2 to come out so close to the Modern Warfare remaster, Zampella said it “definitely feels a little odd. Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is from my old studio, that I built,” he added. “And they’re repackaging my old game that I built, on a brand that I built. So it’s kind of like you’re throwing it all against me. OK, I can live with it.”
We certainly hope that Titanfall 3 gets to see the light of day, seeing as how Titanfall 2 was a brilliant game in itself. You can read our complete review of Titanfall 2 here.
