Now Playing: EA Boss Talks New Respawn Games, PS5/Next Xbox, And More - GS News Update

EA has announced that Respawn--the developer behind the critically acclaimed first-person shooter Titanfall 2--is scheduled to launch multiple games prior to the end of 2019. Neither EA nor Respawn has confirmed what those games might be.

The announcement came about during a quarterly earnings call, when EA CEO Andrew Wilson stated, "Across multiple studies, we have new projects underway, including games from Respawn that are slated to launch by next holiday season." Respawn is currently working on three titles, so Wilson's reference to "games" as opposed to just "a game" implies at least two are coming out next year. As of right now, Respawn is working on Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order, another Titanfall game, and an unnamed VR title.

Details concerning all three games are fairly vague, but Respawn CEO Vince Zampella was able to confirm a few details about Jedi Fallen Order at E3 2018--including that the game is scheduled for 2019's holiday season. So it's safe to say that Jedi Fallen Order is one of the games in question, but whether Respawn is also close to finishing its third Titanfall game, the unnamed VR title, or both remains unknown.

Zampella has spoken to GameSpot about Titanfall before, admitting that Titanfall 2's sales should have been much better and citing the game's launch window between Battlefield 1 and Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare as a serious detriment. With that being the case, it would be a little odd for EA to have Respawn launch another Titanfall game during the normally busy holiday season. So if the next Titanfall is coming out in 2019, we imagine it would be coming out earlier in the year. But we'll have to wait and see.

Although it's not much, we do have a bit more info about Jedi Fallen Order. The game takes place between the events of Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope and puts players in the role of a Jedi Padawan who escaped Order 66. Zampella describes the game as taking place during one of Star Wars' darkest periods, and promises players will be able to use a lightsaber.

I still think there should have been a crossover between Titanfall and Overwatch with a single player campaign, and people would play that.

I had a weird relation titanfall games!

The concept was amazing, the gameplay near perfect, I had a blast in these games but it JUST WOULDN'T LAST!
I remember the 1st time I played the first game in its beta phase I went :"OMG THIS IS THE BEST GAME EVER!!!"
Titans, Wall riding, I was totally into it...
Then about 2 weeks later I was "Meh, I'll play something else..."

I don't know what they could do to manage to keep us interested beyond a couple of days of gameplay...

Somehow people can play call of duty / fortnite for weeks on end.
What's wrong with titanfall?

It doesn't matter anymore; they've already sold their soul to EA after the latter cunningly crippled the sale of TF2.

Please Let it be TitanFall 3! Due to EA's horrible release plan, this perfect game was ignored by many of the players. One of the best storylines in recent years and a robust addictive Multiplayer this game was a blast!

THe last studio that had multiple releases on schedule was Telltale, and look how that worked out for them. I usually equate multiple releases to "one last desperate attempt".

"We will be sabotaging them by releasing these games within one week of our latest AAA shooty shoot, and then close Respawn as a result."

@Thanatos2k: No point in sabotaging them now as they've been bought by EA. That was the whole point for sabotaging the release of Titanfall 2 in the first place. Fvcking EA man...

Let’s just hopeEA doesn’t scupper Respawn again and releases TF3 at a more profitable time. The studio themselves were doing great things before being bought by EA

Titanfall 3 will get shit on by casuals even if EA doesn't botch the advertising. Truth is Playstation gamers didn't give it a fair shake and the majority of people have poor taste. I'll be convinced otherwise when Titanfall 3 sells 10 million copies. Titanfall 2 was better than every exclusive this generation, not debating that.

@logan117: The campaign, while entertaining, is 5 hrs long with little to no replay value and as far as MP goes, most people are just too strongly invested in other franchises(mainly COD & BF) to give anything else a 'fair shake'. Not to mention FPS are a dime a dozen. Competition is merciless. Ask Master Chief.

A better release window will help the game sell better but the franchise will never 'take over' the FPS market as you want it to.

'Better than any exclusive'. LMAO. Aren't you a special snowflake with superior taste. We all have a game/franchise that, according to us, doesn't get the recognition it deserves. No need to cry about it or spout nonsense. There's a sequel to your 'bestest' game coming. That should be enough to make you happy.

@ji-high: Wow how dare I have my own opinion? God of War was like 12 hours, and it has no multiplayer. Singleplayer games with a good story have luster their first time but it dwindles over time. Meanwhile Titanfall 2 has cleaner mutliplayer than any multiplayer game on the market right now and it's performance towers over most games in the first party space. FPS's are a dime a dozen? Really? Did you just go through puberty? A quick google search will reveal there are significantly more AA and AAA action-adventure games than FPS's, especially this generation. Also snowflake? Got any more nonsense buzzwords? I never said my taste is superior, you clearly don't see the irony in your claims. You can have as much fun as you want trying to smear comments in a way that fits your off topic agenda.

EA. Why would you have any faith?

Titanfall is one of the only good things to come out of their publishing and they’ve abandoned it in terms of marketing and PR on both titles soon after release.

Not even mentioning all their other BS.

@mistervulpes: It's a shame, too -- TF1 reinvented FPS MP gameplay. TF2 brought a truly amazing campaign to a FPS MP game, and purely cosmetic, inoffensive titan MTX. TF3 could bring something even better, yet EA will just casually toss it out against any other release date.
