E3 2014: Titanfall 2 Coming to Xbox One and PS4 - Report

Source says game is "in the planning stages."

A sequel to this year's multiplayer shooter Titanfall will launch for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, a source close to the game's development told the Wall Street Journal in the lead-up to E3.

This is notable because the first Titanfall, developed by Respawn Entertainment and Bluepoint Games, was created exclusively for Xbox platforms (Xbox One, Xbox 360) and PC.

The unannounced game, according to the source, is "in the planning stages." EA declined to comment when approached by the Wall Street Journal. There's no word yet on when it might be released, but don't expect it anytime soon, as EA continues to support the original Titanfall with new downloadable content.

Earlier this year, a source told GameSpot that Titanfall publisher Electronic Arts had reached a deal with Respawn Entertainment to make a sequel. Another report followed, saying the unannounced sequel would be a multiplatform title.

During a post-earnings financial call in May, EA officially confirmed that it had signed a deal with Respawn Entertainment to make more Titanfall "experiences." A sequel to Titanfall would not be much of a surprise, as the first game appeared to have sold well and captured mindshare in the first-person shooter market.

In October last year, Respawn Entertainment co-founder Vince Zampella said "of course" the company will someday make a game for Sony's PlayStation 4. If the game is indeed only in the planning stages, it would be a surprise if we see it during EA's E3 press conference today. Still, the company has six total titles to announce.

EA's E3 press conference kicks off today at 12 noon PDT. GameSpot will host a live stream of the event and bring you all the news as it happens.

Titanfall didn't omit any features. Shut your mouths.

Skipping, Titanfall 1 lacked too much

Should be quite entertaining to see what features they omit this time around.

Matchmaking here they come!

Oh God no!!! Don't insult PS4 with this garbage....

It's pretty simple... if you don't want to play the second one, then don't buy it. Playstation has pretty low standards when they allow basement crawl on their system.

I think after Uncharted 4 there should be other games that will be the adventures of sully in his younger days a whole new uncharted with sully  that would be awesome

Been reading up on this, and apparently Titanfall was a huge fail for EA and Microsoft. And this news even more shows how bad EA wants to be on PS4...

PeeAss4 fanboys can talk bs all day long, in the end they all want to play this no matter what…


now for true gamers, this is great news, the more people to get to play it, the better… it would be even better if it had cross-platform multiplayer...

Oh the silly comments! I usually only get one dose of the hilarious comment stupidity per day but today, they just keep coming :P Such fun.


"Keep this trash off of our beloved PS4" lol, like the console would lose value if the game came out for PS4.


I could see someone not caring for a game and thus not buying it but, to hate a video game is rather strange. You'd think they were welding controllers to you hands and forcing you to play them. Getting upset that a game is coming to a certain console may be a sign that its time to put the controller down and go outside and do something else for a while.

Titanfall looks like such a crap generic game I'm honestly not at all excited for this.

I might just have to pick this game up for the PS4. With all the hours I spend playing Titanfall on Xbox One it will be fun to slaughter some Playstation fanboys on day one with zero experience.

Anyone who is bitching, complaining or saying "why would this crap come to PS4" because first of all it's not crap and 2nd, you clearly never played the greatness that is Titanfall.

STANDBY FOR TITANFALL!

I dont think that it would do well away from x-bots, who else would pay full premium price for an always on sci fi FPS? And if it keep stha last gen graphics and loses they hype it got only because it was an exclusive, its fate is sealed, it would be better for EA to keep it exclusive for the xbots, only them are the kind of clients would pay a monthly fee, just to have the right to play games in multiplayer and a full premium fee, for a AA game that can only be played online, as long as you play that monthly fee...

after playing the Titanfall on the 360, even if the sequel comes to the PS4, I wont get it,....

unless it has a full sized single player campaign too... (just MP all the time get's real boring and is not near as fun as Halo, Gears or L4D..)

Has there been any rumors that it WON'T be on X360/PS3?  Cuz that's what I'm looking for, a game made solely for the latest gen consoles.

Titanfall 2 will drop before the Order 1886    FACT

I heard they started on Titanfall 2 a month before the first one was released cause they knew it would be a success

@OneMoreJedi Which is probably why they said not to expect this one anytime soon. It won't be hard to top TF1 in features.

@zee_the_ceo It didn't sell as well as it could have because the Xbox 1 was in it's infancy stage.  After Christmas no one will care about console sales anymore because both consoles will be over 10 million.

@zee_the_ceo Huge fail? It made plenty of cash, hell in March it sold 925K copies, and that's only counting retail copies sold in the US, that doesn't include digital sales or any other country's sales. That alone is 55.5M in revenue, so how exactly did this "fail" when it sold so well in one area in one sale method? VGCharts estimated approximately 2.34M in sales as of May this year across all platforms, which comes up to 140.4M in revenue. So please, how did this "fail".

@Foppe You my friend, are the smartest person I know. I mean, who would have thought that a company would want to expand its business by selling to a larger market? Holy sh*t, you got upper management written all over you. Only a genius like yourself, could predict such an extraordinary turn of events. You were the only one to think that, so you DEFINITELY told us.

@Ahiru-San  if they have it up to ps4 standards ill give it a try. too bad they have to lower it to xcrap1 standards.

@Liquid_ You mean like Knack, Resogun, FF7, God of War 4, Uncharted 4, TLOU, AC Unity, Killzone 4, Battlefield 4, CoD 10 and 11, 150 indie games, yea, keep trash off of PS4. Doing a good job so far.

@Keitha313 It's actually pretty fun. Might be a good idea to try it before passing off judgment.

@klugenbeel 

it's not crap, it's just not near as good as the hype is trying to make it out..., and like mentioned, Halo, Gears & L4D are all have more epical MP Shooter parts.. (besides that, Titanfall still plays overall too much like COD...)

and I'm not buying a sequel, just for a MP Shooter, that's not soo epical... (maybe if I were totally COD MP addicted, but I'm not..)


at the moment, Evolve is hyping me more than any Titanfall 2 could... (so is Destiny..)

I have a PS4 and an Xbox One I have got way more hours of fun out of Titanfall than I did out of Second son.

@Gigaguy777 @zee_the_ceo How much did it cost to make? 55.5m aint exactly breaking even with how much advertising they had for this game. The game was practically dead shortly after launch. Sure there are the faithful that play it, but 1k players aint exactly a lot nowadays.

@sampson3121 @Ahiru-San you may give it a try you say... you mean youll pick it up you are just frustrated and jealous that right now you cant play because your pc isnt strong enough and you dont have a xone. Being honest doesnt cost anything and indeed i find it gives you more respect.

iammcgruber

@sampson3121 Yeah, if they make it more like Knack, you know, up to PS4 standards, pony's should definitely give it a shot. Better yet, they should make it like basement crawl, then Titanfall would be siiiiiick. Right pony?

Nope don't play COD at all not a fan of those games I was a big fan of the speedy gameplay of Unreal tournament and Halo. Titanfall has the same fantastic gameplay style.

@seanwil545 @klugenbeel Kid you never even played Unreal Tournament. As someone who spent their entire teenage years playing UT until the game became too unacceptably generic and awful to even look at, your faux nostalgic grumpassery is hilariously transparent.

@espengrothe1 @Gigaguy777 @zee_the_ceo Fail as in you're both morons with no idea what you're talking about, yea.


It only failed if you compare it to Battlefield, which sells over 10 million each time. Or if you compare it to CoD or GTA.


Frankly, considering it is CoD, it should sell more but you also have to acknowledge the fact that Cod 1 and CoD 2 - the real CoD games - also did not sell 30 million copies each. Before you stupid children discovered and ruined them.


If this franchise continues, you'll see it rivalling other shooters.'


That's like calling Insurgency a fail because it didn't outsell Global Offensive, or Red Orchestra a fail because it didn't outsell Global Offensive. Not accurate comparisons.

@adub424 

you dont play COD at all? if you like TF, and dont play COD, then youre probably missing something.. 

and NO, Titanfall's gameplay is nothing like Halos... (TF's the closest thing to COD..)

@Blazen702 

Crack...its bad for you dude.

All the more reason why UT4 will be PC only.
