Respawn Working With Other Developers On Mobile, Korean Free-To-Play Titanfall Games

Titanfall 2, one of the best games of last year, kind of came and went with some disappointing sales. But developer Respawn has kept plugging away at updates for the game, adding maps and tweaking the game since launch. But beyond the changes to the current game in the series, Respawn is looking to expand the series in a number of ways.

For one, the company is working with South Korean video game company Nexon to publish a free-to-play version of Titanfall in the country. This might sound strange but it's not too surprising; other games, like Call of Duty, have had free-to-play versions of their games there, due largely to the dominance of public PC gaming spaces, called bangs, where players pay for game time instead of the games themselves.

Respawn is also working with other developers to make "awesome mobile titles set in the world of Titanfall," a company spokesperson said on the company's blog.

Our Take
Neither of these projects are too exciting (especially for us here in the U.S.), but they speak to how dedicated EA and Respawn are to the series even in the face of the game's relatively poor sales and release window (it came out the week after EA's own Battlefield 1, which many considered A Real Bad Idea).
