Respawn Not Counting Out Single-Player for Titanfall Sequels

Respawn has said that it isn't ruling out the possibility of including a single-player mode in future Titanfall sequels. So lone wolves may have something to celebrate once the inevitable sequel comes along.
Speaking to Game Informer, Respawn Entertainment’s COO Dusty Welch said, “Would I rule [a single-player mode] out for the future? Certainly not. But I think that there’s a lot of reward in continuing to push the paradigm that Titanfall introduced, which is this always connected, real live visceral multiplayer universe.
“We learned a lot, and I think it’s up to us to think about how we apply the learning to make the next game even more expansive and more engaging than the first.”
Prior to release, Respawn boss Vince Zampella explained that Titanfall didn't have a single-player campaign because the team was too small to make one and Zampella believes that nobody really plays them anyway.
“We make these single-player missions that take up all the focus of the studio, that take a huge team six months to make, and players run through it in eight minutes,” he said. “And how many people finish the single-player game? It’s a small percentage. It’s like, everyone plays through the first level, but 5% of people finish the game.”
Seems like Zampella is willing to change his mind (and the size of his team) when it comes to future Titanfall sequels.
