Titanfall 2 will have a single-player campaign, and it’s getting a TV show


Respawn might not have had the resources to create a campaign for the first Titanfall, but following that game’s success, with 10 million players recorded, that barrier won’t exist for the sequel. 

Will the Titanfall sequel be remembered as a classic? While we wait to find out, why not work your way through the classics in our list of the best FPS games on PC.

The single-player will be a space-faring retelling of the American Revolution, where a new generation of immigrants struggles to cope with life on the new frontier of an inhabitable planet.

“Rather than taking a traditional sci-fi approach to that we wanted to look at how that would happen practically, what the ships would look like and with machines that were designed for excavation and construction , demolition and working the land, and what happens when they are turned into instruments of war,” lead writer Jesse Stern tells Forbes.

“What inspires us is the junction of technological advancement with the inevitability of conflict and war and what the next war might look like. In Titanfall 2 there will be a lot of [scenes] where science meets magic, but keeping it grounded and dirty and human and real.”

Respawn apparently have big aspirations for this world, as they’re also planning on delivering a TV series alongside the game. They’re currently looking into ways of making this possible. It shows they’re invested in the story and world, if nothing else.

“It would be very expensive,” says Respawn Entertainment CEO Vince Zampella. “We are trying to find a way to tell a story in the worlds we want to be in and produce in the TV model.”

Titanfall 2 is planned for release in EA’s fiscal 2017, which runs from April 1, 2016, to March 31, 2017.
