Just under a year ago, rumors claimed a Titanfall 2 was planned and that it wouldn’t be Microsoft-exclusive as the original had been. Now, those rumors have finally been proven true. Respawn’s CEO, Vince Zampella, has told IGN that 2014’s multiplayer shooter is getting a sequel, although it doesn’t have a set title yet.

The original Titanfall’s exclusivity was a business decision, and one which won’t be true of the sequel. The next Titanfall game will be made for the Xbox One, PS4, and PC.

According to Zampella, the game will include more lore, although whether or not it will remain multiplayer-only remains undecided. Respawn may take a different approach to DLC, as map packs “split the community and it makes it harder for matchmaking.”

That, along with the multiple platforms, is already making the second Titanfall game appeal to more players. However, many fans are still hoping for a genuine single-player mode. What would you like to see in Titanfall 2?

EA Has Plans for Titanfall 2

Titanfall is one of the biggest multiplayer titles of the year and while we don’t have official sales numbers yet, it seems to have been successful, so it comes as little surprise that EA plans to publish a sequel. GameSpot says “a reputable source” claims EA just got the rights for Titanfall 2. According to Polygon’s sources, it won’t be a Microsoft exclusive.

However, EA refuses to comment on rumors, so take it with a grain of salt.

Do you think Titanfall 2 is coming? Or perhaps we should discuss a more interesting question: what systems do you think Titanfall 2 will appear on?

Michael Pachter Predicts Titanfall 2 for PS4

We’ve previously brought you a few predictions from financial analyst Michael Pachter, and his latest thoughts on the gaming industry relate to Titanfall. If a Titanfall sequel is made, he doesn’t think it will be exclusive to Xbox platforms and the PC. In fact, he believes “this might be the last exclusive you see for a long time that’s third party.”

According to Pachter, EA expected the Xbox One to be vastly more successful than the PS4, which is why they made the exclusivity deal. He also said that he thinks they would never have made the deal if they knew what the price difference between the two consoles was going to be.

So far, the PS4 has definitely beat the Xbox One in terms of sales and demand, even with Titanfall being such a highly-anticipated title. Titanfall may move a lot of consoles, but we can’t help but think it would sell a lot more copies if it was available on Sony’s platforms as well, and it isn’t out of the realm of possibility that EA is thinking the same thing.

Additionally, we’d previously heard rumors that Sony was trying to make a deal to get future entries in the Titanfall series, which makes sense from Sony’s side as well. Titanfall is huge right now. So while we don’t always agree with Pachter’s assessments, this time we can see a lot of support for his prediction.

Once Titanfall launches in a week, its sales figures should provide an even clearer picture of where the IP might go in the future.
