Due to an influx of emails that we received in regards to Titanfall Mobile, we have decided to update you on this highly anticipated game. Titanfall was developed by the creators of the Call of Duty franchise and was initially released for PC & Console in 2014. The fast-paced shooter game has been extremely successful that Developer Respawn Entertainment has partnered with Nexon Mobile & Particle City in order to develop Titanfall Mobile, a series of standalone mobile titles.
Recently, Publisher Electronic Arts has announced that Titanfall 2 will be released in late 2016 or early 2017. Mobile versions of console titles have often preceded their PC/Console versions as a means of hype creation and marketing. This has been proven time and again when it comes to big developers and it’s very likely to see Titanfall Mobile before Titanfall 2. It has already been confirmed that there will be several standalone Titanfall mobile games and that the first one is expected to be out in 2016.
Now we know that big titles are expected to be released on strategic dates and many are speculating that Titanfall 2 might be released after June due to several Electronic Arts events taking place in mid-June such as EA Play, so there is a chance that they will announce the release date during one of their events. If Titanfall 2 is expected to be released in Q3 or Q4, we can expect Titanfall Mobile to be released in Q2 or Q3 of this year.
The main developer for Titanfall Mobile will be Particle City and they have a quality-focused view when it comes to game development. They pride themselves with games that are developed with the goal to entertain the players for years rather than months. With this in mind, we expect Titanfall Mobile to be a quality game that will be worth the wait rather than a money-grabbing mobile disaster.
However, for this to succeed it has to be build with a freemium model in mind and you can think of the Clash of Clans model in order to see the logic behind it. Moreover, we do expect Titanfall Mobile to be a freemium game and that is further proven by Respawn Entertainment’s choice of partnering with Nexon, a company best known for its freemium games. We hope that the freemium model of the game will not render a pay-2-win type of gameplay because this can leave many players disappointed. Although, we believe that Respawn Entertainment would not allow the mobile debut of its prominent franchise to be a failure because this can hurt the image of the Titanfall franchise.
Finally, there is no doubt that the Titanfall mobile games will be related to the Titanfall universe but each will have its own original story. The games will be available for iOS and Android, but the first mobile title of the standalone series is expected to be released this year.
