It looks like we could be seeing more Titanfall, if statements from Respawn’s CEO Vince Zampella are to be believed.
"The game was successful, it sold well, but it didn't quite sell as well as it should have," Respawn CEO Vince Zampella told GameSpot (via Destructoid). "Maybe because it was super crowded, the pricing was aggressive--it was a rough window to launch our game. But we've got a really great fanbase."
Titanfall 2 had a rocky launch in October 2016, finding itself sandwiched between the release of both Battlefield 1 and Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.
"It's important for us to keep the franchise going. 'We're doing more Titanfall,' which is the quote I'm supposed to say. We have our franchise creative director, who's in charge of safeguarding the franchise in multiple formats and making sure it continues to grow. There's some other things we're doing that haven't been announced just yet, but we're heavily invested in the Titanfall universe."
Late last year, Zampella was unsure if his studio would be making a Titanfall 3.
Titanfall 2 has routinely seen free content updates since launch, introducing new multiplayer maps, cosmetics, and more. Cooperative horde mode Frontier Defence was recently introduced too.
"We don't know where and when to stop supporting it,” Zampella continued. “Frontier Defense was obviously something big for us to get out and to push for, and our numbers during the launch of FD were like five times the numbers since the initial launch, in terms of player count – and it's now starting to stabilize a bit. There's two or three times as many people playing Frontier Defense right now than all other multiplayer modes combined. That's very encouraging for us; I love to see that."
