EA is committed to Titanfall – "Whatever the f*** that means" Respawn CEO responds.


Vince Zampella, CEO of Respawn Entertainment and ex-employee from Infinity Ward gave an interview to Glixel about Titanfall 2, and its launching against Call Of Duty. He went to say his thoughts about Modern Warfare Remastered, a game he worked on 9 years ago and helped reshape the military shooter as we know today. “It definitely feels a little odd” he said to Glixel. “Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is from my old studio, that I built. And they’re repackaging my old game that I built, on a brand that I built. So it’s kind of like you’re throwing it all against me. OK, I can live with it.”

Zampella was asked how he felt about Titanfall 2 releasing a week later after EA’s biggest success Battlefield 1. “f the question was, ‘Would I rather have this window to myself?’ Well, of course,” he says. “I’m not foolish. I’m not foolish that way, anyway. In other ways, probably.” Respawn knew in advance about the release window, but the “exact timing” was known, he says. Glixel also asked whether Respawn were worried, going up against Battlefield 1. “It’s always a concern,” Zampella says in response. “That’s what I’ll say. Especially when you have two games on top of each other.”
After this, a new Titanfall game is not confirmed. “We don’t know yet, (…) The game is, critically, a huge success. We’re really happy with all the reviews and the positive sentiment. Sales, it’s too early to tell.”We’d definitely like to tell more of the story and the universe. I think it’s pretty safe to assume that we’ll explore more of it. EA might have announced more. Devin?”
In this moment, Devin Bennett, a publicist for EA, interjects, “What we’ve said is we’re committed to the franchise.” Zampella finishes saying “So, whatever the f*** that means”.
