Titanfall 2 was Wonderful, Respawn Boss Would Love a Sequel

Titanfall 3 is not likely to be released anytime soon, but the game's developers are not forgetting the brand and admit that they would like to return to it.

Respawn Entertainment is not currently working on a new installment of Titanfall. However, the developers have not forgotten about the brand.

  1. In an interview with Dexerto, Respawn Entertainment head Vince Zampella stated that he would like to develop Titanfall 3 in the future.
  2. At the same time, Zampella stressed that currently a new installment of the series is not in production and there are not even any plans to start work on it.
  3. Zampella also stated that the series will return only when the developers have the right idea for the third installment and there is adequate time to develop it. Thus, we are unlikely to expect this game to be made soon.

The reason why we still haven't received a new installment of the series is the disappointing sales results of Titanfall 2. Publisher of the game, Electronic Arts, has never given official numbers - according to analysts' estimates in the first few months of its release, the sequel found more than 4 million buyers. It's not a small number, but the brand simply isn't as profitable for EA as other projects Respawn Entertainment is working on, such as Apex Legends or Star Wars Jedi.

Of course, the disappointing sales of Titanfall 2 are largely the blame of Electronic Arts itself. This is because the company chose the worst possible date for the game's release - a week after the release of Battlefield 1 and a few days before the debut of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. In the clash with these big brands, the game from Respawn Entertainment had little chance.
