Respawn Entertainment made a name for themselves in the first-person shooter space with their sci-fi title Titanfall.
Veteran Call of Duty developers Vince Zampella and Jason West left their home turf Infinity Ward to build a new game development studio called Respawn Entertainment. Their expertise in the first-person shooter genre of video games was quite clear as their first IP called Titanfall stunned players with its amusing gameplay mechanics.
Titanfall is a futuristic shooter where Titans play a major part in the battlefield. In the world of Titanfall, players had the option to summon Titans as a reward for completing certain killstreaks. Unsurprisingly, they were a behemoth to deal with on the actual battlefield.
The original Titanfall only came with a multiplayer mode. As such, over the years, the support for the multiplayer game dwindled since Respawn had other live service titles to take care of. And the recent cyber attack on the old Titanfall servers didn’t make the process easy for the dev team to deliver a good experience for diehard Titanfall fans.
RIP Titanfall 1
Following constant DDoS attacks from cheaters, fans requested Respawn to intervene. However, seems like moving forward Respawn will no longer support the original Titanfall 1 as they just made an official announcement that states they will discontinue new sales of the original Titanfall game starting December 1st, 2021.
Furthermore, they will be removing the game from subscription services on March 1, 2022. Although they will be keeping the server live for the dedicated fanbase that still plays the game or own the game.
Respawn later went on to clarify that Titanfall is still core to Respawn’s DNA and this universe will continue on in the future. Even though they haven’t really made an announcement for Titanfall 3, they are definitely hinting at the possibility of introducing the Titanfall experience in the future.
