EA Mentioned Titanfall In Financial Call, Getting Our Hopes Up Again

An EA Executive casually mentioned the possibility of a new Titanfall game “sometime down the road” while discussing studio acquisitions during a financial call. Blake Jorgensen, EA’s COO and CFO, was answering a question about EA possibly acquiring any new studios and brought up the process of acquiring Respawn Entertainment, when he mentioned the magic word.

“It wasn’t about Titanfall, and that’s no offense to Titanfall; it’s an amazing game and we’ll maybe see a Titanfall at some point, sometime down the road,” Jorgensen said.

Jorgensen was more than likely just using it as an example to strengthen his answer, more stumbling into Titanfall than coyly teasing it. But in a conversation dominated by financial numbers and FIFA Ultimate Team, my ears were burning at the mention of one of EA’s best franchises having even the most remote possibility at getting a new entry.

Titanfall 2 has one of the best single-player FPS campaigns of this console generation and an unmatched movement system, so naturally fans of the series, like me, will grasp at any hope for a new game, no matter how minuscule that possibility really is. Though Apex Legends is based in the same universe and features some of the same weapons, it’s a far different beast. The titular Titans are nowhere to be found, and the traversal mechanics are different, as well.

Titanfall 2, alongside a bunch of EA’s catalogue, recently came to Steam, with Apex Legends coming later this year.
