Titanfall 3 – Respawn Discusses The Future Of The Franchise

Respawn Titanfall 3

Respawn Entertainment’s release of Titanfall 2 seemed like an overlooked gem from last year. The game in no way failed, but due to the publishing company’s (Electronic Arts) decision to release the title a week after the incredibly hyped Battlefield 1, it likely wasn’t going to perform as well as one would hope. It was a strange business move, however, Titanfall 2 wasn’t a total bust in terms of sales. So what’s next for the franchise, Titanfall 3? According to one of Respawn’s co-founders, the company is planning on “doing more Titanfall.”

In a recent interview, Respawn co-founder Vince Zampella sat down to discuss the franchise’s success, as well as the future of the property. When asked about the shaky sales in comparison to the first game, Zampella stated:

The game was successful, it sold well, but it didn’t quite sell as well as it should have. Maybe because it [2016 holiday season] was super crowded, the pricing was aggressive–it was a rough window to launch our game. But we’ve got a really great fanbase. There’s not really much negativity or acidity compared to other communities, so I’m very thankful for that. 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.”

At first glance, Titanfall fans may interpret that as an unofficial Titanfall 3 announcement, but looking at the carefully placed wording, it would seem that Respawn has other ideas in mind for the franchise. That’s not to say that a third installment is out of reach, it just looks as though the company is looking into other formats in which to expand the universe. Could a Titanfall movie be on the horizon?


Vince Zampella doesn’t elaborate, but he praised the dedicated fans, and when asked about what the franchise has accomplished thus far, he replied:

We’re very proud of what we have so far. As a new studio, we tried something different and new, and while it worked–maybe not well enough to remove the single-player–we kinda expanded with the follow-up, and we brought in the single-player, which turned out great. We’re working on more Titanfall–we’re not announcing what that is yet, but there’s a few other things in the works–the mobile game, which turned out fantastic and is super fun, the fans love it and allowed us to expand on what we did in the last games. So I’m pretty happy with what the franchise has become.”

Titanfall 3 may not have been officially announced, but judging by the Respawn co-founder’s comments, it appears that big things are coming for the franchise. Titanfall 2 is available now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. All game mode DLC is free, and the release of the Ultimate Edition will give new players a boost to catch up. For EA and Origin Access members, the standard edition is free.
