Titanfall 2 Rumors Hint at Possibility of Coming to Multiple Consoles
If you think piloting a mech suit to do mass destruction is cool, then Titanfall is for you, unless you own a PlayStation 4. That doesn't mean the sequel may not cater to more platforms.
With Respawn's first game, Titanfall, being an Xbox One console exclusive, many people are missing out on the mech-piloting fun, but Titanfall 2 may not follow in its predecessor's footsteps, IGN reports. There has been speculation since Titanfall released last year that there would be a sequel -- with such a great reception, why wouldn't there be? Now, Electronic Art's CFO, Blake Jorgensen, has stepped forward during the Technology, Internet & Media Conference to sort of confirm that there "probably" will be a successor. He also admitted that this sequel will probably be out for more consoles than just the Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
"Last year it was on the Xbox only; in the future, we haven't yet announced, but we'll probably have another Titanfall game," Jorgensen explained. "It will probably be a bigger footprint than just a single platform. I think that's a huge positive for us."
It seems that Electronic Arts' game-plan is to have a new first-person shooter out each year. While this and next year's slots are already filled with Battlefield Hardline, Star Wars: Battlefront and Battlefield 5, there's still room for another. However, it's still not clear if Titanfall 2 would be coming out next year or two years from now with Respawn admitting that, at least for this year the team will be "[putting their] heads down, back to work."
