The original story follows:
McFarlane Toys has announced that Titanfall 2 will release this year, alongside the toy company's line of action figures based on the first-person shooter.
Todd McFarlane's toy company announced in a press release that the toys and Titanfall 2 would launch "winter 2016" (via Polygon). According to a promotional image on the McFarlane site, the figures come in at seven inches tall.
McFarlane says Titanfall and his toy company are "a perfect fit."
"McFarlane [Toys] was created so I could make cool stuff just like this," said McFarlane in the press release. "Without saying too much about the new game... You're not going to believe where we can take this."
We have contacted EA about the supposed release date of "winter 2016" and will update this story as more information becomes available.
This release window lines up with a previous report that said Titanfall 2 would release sometime in EA's fiscal 2017, which lasts from April 1, 2016 to March 31, 2017.
Lead writer Jesse Stern recently revealed in an interview that Titanfall 2 would include a single-player campaign. He also mentioned that a Titanfall television series is in the works at Lionsgate TV.
