What you need to know

  • Respawn Entertainment Community Coordinator Jason Garza has confirmed that "there's nothing there" for the future of Titanfall, Respawn's fast-paced shooter franchise.
  • Respawn has committed to maintaining Titanfall and Titanfall 2, however, and will continue to combat the recent surge of hackers and server problems.
  • Garza noted that Respawn has "too many other games in the works," indicating that we can expect new projects from the studio moving forward.

Update Sept. 22 (9:57 p.m. ET): Respawn has Tweeted that "Titanfall is the very core of our DNA," indicating that a new game may come in the future.

In the wake of the massive success of Respawn Entertainment's Apex Legends, many fans of the developer's 2014 shooter Titanfall and its 2017 sequel, Titanfall 2, have been concerned that the studio won't return to the Titanfall series in the future. These fears have unfortunately been confirmed during a recent livestream, in which Respawn Entertainment Community Coordinator Jason Garza stated that Respawn currently has no plans to make new Titanfall content.

"Don't get your hopes up, man. I've said this before. We don't have anything in the works," Garza said. "There's nothing. There's nothing there. We've got too many other games in the works right now."

This is devastating news for Titanfall fans, but there is a silver lining. In the comments of the stream, Garza confirmed that Respawn is developing solutions for the recent waves of hackers and server issues that have plagued Titanfall and Titanfall 2's multiplayer servers. "We are still working on the current situation, but as always, cant really telegraph those moves publicly," Garza said.

Notably, Garza's comments indicate that Respawn is working on several new games right now, which suggests that we may see new titles from the developer in the near (or far) future. They won't be Titanfall games, but perhaps they'll be part of a brand new first-person shooter IP that fans will love.

Titanfall 2 is currently available for $20 on Xbox and PC. The price often gets discounted down to $5, and you should get it when it does, as it's easily one of the best Xbox shooters available despite the game's recent issues.

Update Sept. 22 (9:57 p.m. ET) — Respawn responds

Respawn has responded by Tweeting that "Titanfall is the very core of our DNA" and ended the Tweet by saying "Who knows what the future holds," suggesting that a new Titanfall game may be developed by the studio moving forward.
