Respawn Entertainment, the developer behind Titanfall and Titanfall 2 has noticed that players are beginning to wonder what future support for Titanfall 2 looks like right now. In a blog post on the official Titanfall website, Respawn took some blame for being less than communicative with the player community, and vowed to do better, especially as more exciting announcements near.
The post begins by pointing out how successful Respawn feels both Titanfall titles have been, and how that success has encouraged the developer to continue creating great content for the franchise.
“With two highly-rated Titanfall games under our belts, we’re very proud of what we’ve made and the foundation we’ve laid for the franchise. Titanfall 2 remains healthy and growing with new players coming in every week. Right now we’re focused on the long term future of Titanfall and we’re excited about it. The core Titanfall team is working away on lots of cool stuff, whether that be DLC for Titanfall 2, action blocks and prototypes for future Titanfall projects, or other crazy science experiments.”
The post goes on to point out how Titanfall 2 has improved since its initial release with its Live Fire mode and Angel City. However, it has not been lost on Respawn that along with that success, the team should be making better attempts at engaging with its players and notifying them of future changes that are still coming.
“We could have done a better job at communicating the breadth of stuff we planned to release. This is something that we will get better at and the studio remains committed to supporting Titanfall 2 with free content as well as new Prime Titans, store items, and more.”
But the developer doesn’t intend on simply making empty promises. It points out that the community can fully expect to ask their questions in the near future.
“Next month, we’ll be kicking off a Q&A video series, developer blogs and more. Our goal is to start providing regular content that gives more insight into the people and work they do at Respawn and give a more satisfying feedback loop to players so that their voices feel heard.”
With that said, Respawn says that even more news will be coming to the blog on March 23, including details on Titanfall 2 DLC still to come this March. Then, in April, we can expect further details to be revealed regarding how Titanfall 2 will be supported for the months that follow.
Last month, Titanfall 2‘s Live Fire mode came via a free update to the game, in which two teams of six players must compete in multiple 60 second rounds.
