Remember Titanfall’s campaign story? Me neither. There’s was something about blowing up a grounded spaceship, and then something else about blowing up a robot factory. It was a bad story told in the most annoying way possible. Between the 30-second pre-round cinematics and the mid-match HUD transmissions, no one paid any attention to the story of generic group A versus generic group B. How can any story compare with two-story tall mechsuits fighting parkour gunslingers?
Respawn’s lead writer, Jesse Stern, says Titanfall 2 will do better. In an interview with Forbes, Stern says the sequel will feature a single-player campaign. He claims that the universe of Titanfall is compelling enough to inspire a spin-off television show produced by Lionsgate.
“In Titanfall 2 there will be a lot of [scenes] where science meets magic, but keeping it grounded and dirty and human and real.”
We got robots and parkour in the first game. Why not add wizards? Titanfall 2 is rumored to be coming to PlayStation 4 as well as Xbox One and PC.
