The developers of the popular FPS Titanfall, Respawn Entertainment, have split into two teams, and one will not be working on Titanfall. Earlier this year, Respawn hired Stig Asmussen, who is known for heading the development of God of War 3, and it was also announced that Asmussen would not be working on Titanfall. Vince Zampella, Respawn’s CEO, talked about this new development team and Titanfall’s future in a recent interview with Game Informer.
Zampella was brief but blunt in his interview, stating “there is a second team. Non-Titanfall related.” As for if this team is also tied to EA, or if EA has the rights for a second Titanfall game, Zampella had nothing to announce. He went on to speak about how Respawn does plan to continue with Titanfall and that “future projects will not necessarily be exclusive.”
What these future projects may entail is still unknown, and Respawn has no plans to unveil what they may be in the upcoming year: “Next year will be a little quiet. We’ll be heads down, back to work. Next year [we will be] figuring out what we’re doing and really kind of honing in on what the next games will be.” Could Respawn be delving into the third person action genre, though, given Asmussen’s history with the genre? When asked about Asmussen’s specialty, Zampella responded that they were “going in with an open mind,” so it is a possibility. Let us know what you think about the direction Respawn could be heading for in the comments below.
