Titanfall 2 Lead Writer, Jesse Stern, has confirmed in an extensive interview with Forbes that the upcoming title will not only feature a dedicated single-player campaign but also has a TV spin-off show in the works. Stern believes that the sequel will be “even better” than the first entry.
The multi-player game will be even better than it was the first time around. The first game was an Xbox exclusive (initially). This one is going to be widely available, I believe on all platforms. One of the shortcomings of the first game was we just did not have the mechanism to tell everyone ‘here’s who you are, here’s where you are and who’s around you.’ We knew all the answers, we just could not deliver it.
So we are doing our best to deliver a vision of grand global colonial warfare retelling the story of the American Revolution and the American Civil War in space. We imagined the next generation of immigrants moving out to 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.
Stern didn’t reveal a lot of details about the TV spin-off, but did say that Respawn Entertainment and Lionsgate have teamed up to work on the project.
As for when Titanfall 2 is releasing, Stern isn’t sure when it’ll be out but did say that it’s been in development since late 2014. Worth noting that EA has previously said that the game should be out in fiscal 2017.
