Meet the Sim Ninja, one of the many deadly Pilots in Titanfall: Assault.
Also in our interview, Zampella talked about how Titanfall 2's fanbase is a generally positive group, which can't always be said for other fanbases. However, Respawn Entertainment remains dedicated to the action franchise. Even in an "off year" Call of Duty still managed to be a juggernaut thanks to the release of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered which was bundled in with select versions of the somwhat disappointing Infinite Warfare. Speaking with our friend at GameSpot, Respawn Entertainment Boss Vince Zampella admitted that Titanfall 2 sales did receive a blow due to aggressive pricing and a rough release window.
It's no secret that Titanfall 2 has struggled to find its footing this past year with disappointingly low sales, despite the devs dropping free content on a regular basis. These games went on to become the top two best-selling titles in 2016 in the United States. However, Zampella also acknowledged that sales should have been stronger.
"It's important for us to keep the franchise going".
So yeah, Titanfall 2 kinda had a hard time standing up to the competition but it was a great game. Whether that means a third Titanfall shooter or other games in the universe, he didn't say.
The companies revealed today that Titanfall: Assault will launch worldwide for iOS and Android on Thursday, Aug. 10.
"We're working on more Titanfall-we're not announcing what that is yet, but there's a few other things in the works-the mobile game, which turned out fantastic and is super fun, the fans love it and allowed us to expand on what we did in the last games". That should be enough good news for Titanfall fans, especially those who might have been anxious that the series will end after the lackluster sales of Titanfall 2.
