First Titanfall 2 Details Shared By Lead Writer – There Will Be A Campaign And Maybe Even A TV Show

We all know that Titanfall 2 is coming before April 2017 (March seems a good guess, since the next Battlefield will have Holiday 2016 and the original Titanfall released in March 2014) and recently Electronic Arts' CEO Andrew Wilson said that it's looking fantastic.

However, we have a few more concrete details today thanks to Lead Writer Jesse Stern, who was interviewed on the topic by Forbes. Titanfall 2 will have a full fledged campaign since now Respawn Entertainment has the resources to craft it, and it will set in a different world where science meets magic (absent in the first game) despite still being grounded and realistic, according to Stern.

So we are doing our best to deliver a vision of grand global colonial warfare retelling the story of the American Revolution and the American Civil War in space. We imagined the next generation of immigrants moving out to the new frontier of an inhabitable planet. Rather than taking a traditional sci-fi approach to that we wanted to look at how that would happen practically, what the ships would look like and with machines that were designed for excavation and construction , demolition and working the land, and what happens when they are turned into instruments of war.

What inspires us is the junction of technological advancement with the inevitability of conflict and war and what the next war might look like. In Titanfall 2 there will be a lot of [scenes] where science meets magic, but keeping it grounded and dirty and human and real.

Stern also said that the multiplayer will be even better than in the first game, and that Titanfall 2 will be available on multiple platforms, though we knew that already.

Stern was the lead writer of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, but he had previously worked on NCIS for five seasons as writer, producer and co-executive producer. Apparently, he wants to get back into the TV show business and that includes a spin-off project for Titanfall, which is being investigated in partnership with Lionsgate TV.

It would be very expensive. We are trying to find a way to tell a story in the worlds we want to be in and produce in the TV model.
