EA Aquires Respawn Entertainment – Scripted Gaming
So that’s why the Titans fall…
I was really hoping this wouldn’t happen. EA just bought out Respawn Entertainment. So now they have yet another of my favorite series in their not-so-caring hands. I just hope what happened to Mass Effect doesn’t happen to Titanfall. You know, the whole “continues the story in novels and not make a new game until they can make it relevant” garbage. People are scared Respawn might just go the way of Visceral, and that concern is well-founded. After all, EA has a long history of doing that.
Currently, Respawn is working on a Star Wars game, a follow up to Titanfall 2 and a VR title. If Battlefront 2 and Titanfall 2 are any indications. The new Titanfall might include free DLC. Let’s just hope it also includes a solo player campaign, Titanfall 2 had a decent one and, from what I’ve seen, so does Battlefront 2.
My main concerns are with EA’s handling of Titanfall so far. When Titanfall 2 came out it released alongside other games like Call Of Duty and Battlefield. Both of those franchises have huge followings and Titanfall 2 didn’t stand a chance. I’m not sure who thought that was a good idea, but that was only Titanfall’s second game, and it’s first one on multiple consoles.
I myself have never played the first Titanfall. Titanfall 2, on the other hand, is one of my favorite games. I love the campaign and the multiplayer is alright. Frontier Defense is the best mode, though.
I’m surprised they continued to support the game after a flop like that. The post-release content is what made the game for many of its players. If EA allows Respawn to still do this for their other games, that might alleviate the fears of some of their fans. Myself included of course. Well, at this point all we can really do is watch and hope this doesn’t spell disaster for the fledgling franchise.
Well, that’s all I have for you today. Thanks for letting me waste your time, people.
