Respawn’s social media account became more hopeful about the future of the series after Respawn’s community coordinator Jason Garza said the studio is now “too many other games” to create new content for the Titanfall franchise. It seems to provide a perspective.
After a report highlighting Garza’s comments spread on the Internet, Respond broke the record on Twitter. At least it’s kind of. “Contrary to what some people report,” I read a tweet from the studio (below). “Titanfall is at the heart of our DNA. No one knows what the future holds …”
Contrary to what some people have reported, Titanfall is just the core of our DNA.
Who knows what the future holds …

Garza’s first comment suggested that news of upcoming Titanfall content was unlikely. “There’s nothing there. There are too many other games right now,” he said. Last year, when asked by IGN if the Titanfall franchise was over in an interview about the studio’s 10th anniversary, Respawn’s co-founder expressed similar feelings. “Nothing is currently under development, but it’s always there,” he said at the time.
It’s unclear if Respawn’s recent comments on Twitter remind us that the company still keeps the Titanfall series in mind, but fans hope it means something more important. I’m out.
Since the release of Titanfall 2 in 2016, Respawn has embodied many other IPs. The studio is currently working on the regularly updated Titanfall spin-off Apex Legends. Given Apex’s success, the future of Titanfall could be in-game. This year’s update, after all, contains an obvious Titanfall reference.
In 2019, the studio also released Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, a third-person action-adventure game. In the earnings announcement following the success of Fallen Order EA, EA CEO Andrew Wilson confirmed that it would be “the first title of a brand new franchise” for publishers. If Respawn is considering returning to the core Titanfall series in the future, it should be part of an impressive balancing act for the studio. Also I’m working on a new single player game set in a completely different universe.
Respawn is currently investigating rumors of a major security vulnerability in Titanfall 2 that is causing panic within the community. Concerns raised in the form of Discord screenshots earlier this month claimed that the game was at stake and warned players not to launch the game on their PC. Overall, it’s a long and weird road for Titanfall 2, and only when the game was virtually abandoned by the developers.
