It’s been a while since anyone’s really heard anything major about Titanfall, the game from the former Call of Duty developers at Respawn Entertainment. But it looks like the franchise lives, and will be coming to mobile, to boot. Nexon will be publishing mobile games based on Titanfall, with multiple games planned over several years. And along with Respawn, they’ll be investing in the game’s developer, Particle City which is co-located with Respawn, and founded by Respawn CEO Vince Zampella along with Larry Pacey, former head of slot machine maker WMS.
This is far from an unprecedented move for Nexon – they’re publishing Cliff Bleszinski’s LawBreakers on desktop, though it too is a free-to-play game, of course. Though, it’ll be interesting to see just what kind of games the Titanfall partnership brings. While it’ll be curious to see what comes out of this for mobile, this also raises the question: What is the future of the Titanfall franchise? We know EA is doing Titanfall 2 but how will the mobile games relate to that?
