Bless Respawn, they are trying their best to win over PlayStation owners who were left out when they launched Titanfall and once again have reiterated that the number 2 in Titanfall 2 does not mean it’s a sequel. It is a brand new IP. Ignore that other game from two years back. Titanwhat?
“Titanfall 2 is really a new IP at launch if you think about it,” said Respawn COO Dusty Welch. “The Xbox One install base is two or three times what it was when Titanfall launched, the PC audience continues to grow. Then there’s the PS4 install base, which is enormous. It has a ‘2’ next to its name, but that signifies the dual elements of Titan and Pilot, and the single player and multiplayer.”
I wonder if they think that if they say the same thing over and over people will eventually believe them? Anyway, here’s a rather fab new trailer for the single player campaign for the brand new IP, Titanfall 2.
The team have also commented on their launch window, sandwiched between Battlefield 1 and this years Call of Duty.
“We’re launching with a lot of sequels,” said art director Joel Emslie. “They’re not just sequels either, they’re way into the series. If gamers are looking for something brand new to play, even though Titanfall 2 is a sequel, it’s the first time we’ve added single player to it.”
It cant be a new IP and a sequel. Which is it? Oh this is so confusing.
