It is a sad day for fans of the critically acclaimed shooter series Titanfall as Respawn Entertainment co-founder Vince Zampella has confirmed that no new Titanfall title is currently in development.

The news came during an exclusive IGN interview with Zampella regarding Respawn Entertainment’s decade-long existence in the industry. "There’s nothing currently in development. But it’s always there.," he mentioned in the interview, which to be honest is better than nothing. The disappointment mainly comes from the teaser that was made last year that a new Titanfall title will be coming in the latter part of 2019 and that it would be a “twist on the franchise”. Since then, 2019 came and went; no game came out and no news from either Electronic Arts or Respawn, making it safe to assume that the project has officially been canned.

Titanfall and Titanfall 2 are possibly two of the biggest what-ifs of the video game industry and the first-person shooter genre. Both critically acclaimed, both revolutionized the genre, but both failed to garner AAA levels of commercial success. The franchise has found success in the form of Apex Legends, a free-to-play battle royale shooter, which is set in the same universe as Titanfall. Of course Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order; a deviation from Respawn's usual shooter games and the studio’s first foray into single-player games, also saw some major critical and commercial success.

For those who want their Titanfall fix, Apex Legends is slowly but surely including more lore content in their fifth season, including in-game and extra PvE quests. Also, as a player of both Titanfall and Apex Legends, you’d have to try really hard to not see huge chunks of Titanfall every time you land in Kings Canyon (RIP Skulltown). Lots of the game’s assets, such as weapons, locations, and even characters, are taken from the Titanfall universe, so there’s that.

As for the future of Respawn, the studio will be working closely with DICE LA on a still unannounced team shooter, plus its first VR title in cooperation with Oculus Studios titled Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond, slated to release this year.
