Many who played 2014’s Titanfall — developed by Respawn Entertainment — will remember the mech-based first-person shooter did not feature a campaign alongside its main multiplayer component. The only slight resemblance to a single-player mode were the game’s character narrations which would appear mid-battle in the HUD. Well it seems the all-but-confirmed sequel may feature a campaign, according to the sequel’s lead writer Jesse Stern.
In an interview with Forbes, Stern explains that the game will be available across an array of platforms on the game’s release; the original game was an Xbox exclusive along with a PC iteration and has thus far not made its way onto either of Sony’s console platforms. “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,” Stern says about the premise. “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.”
On top of this, it’s been reported that a tie-in television series may be in the works to coincide with the game’s release, though whether or not this will even see the light of day remains to be seen.
