The much anticipated TitanFall, produced by Respawn, is only going to be multiplayer.
Respawn is composed of many of the previous developers of Infinity Ward. These developers created Call of Duty 2, Modern Warfare, and Modern Warfare 2. After leaving Infinity Ward, they created their own company called Respawn where they seek to revolutionize the FPS genre once again. With their newest title, TitanFall, they are not going to include a singleplayer, the reason being that the majority of people who play FPS games like Call of Duty spend the majority of their time playing multiplayer so it would be a waste of resources for such a small team to work on a campaign mode.
I personally don’t think it’s a big deal. I was never fond of the campaign modes in Call of Duty, but I know some people enjoyed them. Regardless, I highly doubt people bought Call of Duty for the singleplayer alone, they probably purchased it moreso for the multiplayer experience. I agree with the studio developers, why waste resources on a singleplayer when they can improve the multiplayer? Recently, FPS games are all clones of each other with different maps. That’s what the Call of Duty series has come down to. It’s becoming quite ridiculous and it’s refreshing to know that the original creators that made Call of Duty so popular are trying to do something different and finally take the FPS genre in a new direction.
Hopefully TitanFall succeeds and we can see some nice healthy competition between Respawn and their former studio, Infinity Award, and that in turn results in much better FPS games. However, a drawback is that it could split up the audiences between the games, some may prefer TitanFall and others may prefer Call of Duty, but we just have to wait and find out what happens. TitanFall could end up being very disappointing, but I doubt it, it has received much praise at E3, so it should hopefully be great.
With that said, I’m expecting that this game could be played on a wide variety of settings and computers as Respawn hopes to capture a large audience with the PC version. It’s most likely that builds as cheap as $400 should easily be able to play the game at very playable settings.
TitanFall is expected to release next year for the Xbox 360, Xbox One, and the PC. Hope you enjoy it.
