A while ago, Nexon and Respawn Entertainment announced a deal to make Titanfall mobile games. The first game, Titanfall: Frontline didn't make it out of soft launch, being a Hearthstone [Free] style CCG. It probably could have released and been fine, but all parties involved decided to cut their losses. But despite Titanfall 2 not meeting sales expectations and seemingly putting the franchise in jeopardy, Titanfall's mobile titles are still coming along. Next up is Titanfall: Assault, a "real-time PvP mobile strategy game" where you'll build a deck of Pilots, Titans, and Burn Cards to fight in various maps in the Frontier War.

My fear is that they're making the same mistake that they did with Titanfall: Frontline, which is to make a derivative game in a crowded genre without differentiating itself. It seems like hardpoint domination is part of the game from the screnshots, but I do see some lanes involved. Other games like Tom Clancy's Shadowbreak are at least adding a separate gameplay component on top of the Clash Royale "collectible card arena" gameplay. I'm curious to see how Titanfall: Assault turns out if and when it soft launches. The official website has some additional screenshots and information.

    Omg.... I see this failing again. They to break the mold and/or really think about adding some SP content....campaign with a story....so sick of the vs. only games continually disappointing me over a game I would have otherwise been excited about. I'm still feeling a bit of salt concerning Dawn of War 3 and is very light campaign for the highest price point ever in DoW history, hah...so this is a lot of where I'm coming from, but it seems to be a trend lately. Bah, oh well.

    Why not make a mobile Frontline like clone or mech action game from a top down perspective. it seems like there is so many better styles of game out there for this type of IP.

    Make a single player game like a titanfall version of front mission.

    • Alex Hughes

      That would be fantastic!

      • Sophisticated Computer User

        Oh yeah, front mission was fantastic. A titanfall game like that would be legendary.
