Apex Legends, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, and Titanfall 2 developer Respawn Entertainment has announced that the first Titanfall is being discontinued from sale today, with its removal from subscription services like EA Play, set to follow on 1st March 2022. The studio has assured that servers will stay live for the game's “dedicated fanbase” who still play.
“Titanfall is part of our DNA at Respawn,” the developer said in a statement on Twitter. “It's a game that showcased the ambitions of the studio when it was first released more than 7 years ago and it continues to be a beacon of innovation that we strive for in all of our games.”
Respawn adds that Titanfall remains important to the studio, stating that “this incredible universe will continue”. Currently, Titanfall lives on in battle royale spin-off Apex Legends, which is set within the same universe. “This franchise is a north star for the caliber of experiences we will continue to create here at Respawn”.
As for a proper Titanfall 3, that decision apparently rests entirely in the hands of Respawn. Hopefully, we'll hear something about that at some point in the near future.
