Respawn CEO Says Titanfall 3’s Future Is Uncertain
Critically, it seems as though things went perfectly for Titanfall 2’s release. Many believe that the sequel corrected many of the issues that the original title faced, mainly the lack of a single player campaign mode. Not only did Titanfall fill this absence, but critics generally approved of the storyline. However, sales numbers have not been visibly enough so far to immediately warrant a Titanfall 3 announcement. A recent Glixel interview with Respawn’s CEO, Vince Zampella, gives us a better picture of the franchise’s situation.
In this interview, Zampella does confirm that Respawn Entertainment does have ideas about what Titanfall 3 would consist of, but the future of this title still hangs in the balance despite the critical acclaim of the latest entry. “We don’t know yet,” said Zampella. “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.” One of EA’s publicists, Devin Bennett, immediately responded to these statements during the interview by declaring that EA is still committed to the franchise, to which Zampella rebutted with “So, whatever the f*** that means.”
I, for one, am happy that Respawn responded well to all of the criticisms of the first game and made a high quality sequel to build the franchise even further, but I think EA made some bad decisions regarding the marketing and release date (which was a week after Battlefield 1 and the same date as Skyrim Remastered). I certainly hope Titanfall 3 is given a fair chance at existence. What do you guys think? Did you like Titanfall 2? Would you play a Titanfall 3? Let us know in the comments below!
