After years of trying to fight back against constant DDoS attacks, game developer Respawn has decided to remove the original Titanfall from sale as it is likely costing too much to support and is simply not worth the effort compared to their other popular titles. Additionally, it will be removed from subscription services on March 1st, 2022.
“Rest assured, Titanfall is core to Respawn's DNA and this incredible universe will continue,” Respawn said. “Today in Titanfall 2 and Apex Legends, and in the future. This franchise is a north star for the calibre of experiences we will continue to create here at Respawn.”
That sure sounds like Respawn will continue the Titanfall series at some point, even if they already denied Titanfall 3 was currently in development. Obviously, Apex Legends continues its success and is a top priority for the studio, and Titanfall 2 will still be available despite the same issues with DDoS attacks (though at least it has a fantastic single player campaign).
What do you think? How do you feel about Titanfall being delisted? Is this the right move? Or is it removing a part of history? Have you ever played the original? Let us know!
