Titanfall Expanding To Mobile As Respawn Partners With Nexon
Respawn’s Titanfall is heading to mobile as the developer has partnered up with free-to-play game publisher Nexon.
The Titanfall mobile titles are to be developed by Respawn’s sister company Particle City, which was actually founded this year by Respawn CEO Vince Zampella and Larry Pacey. Publisher Nexon, who will also be publishing Bleszinski’s ‘Lawbreakers’, will be publishing the mobile games globally. The first mobile title for Android and iOS devices, is scheduled for a release in 2016.
“Working closely with our partners at Respawn and Particle City we intend to build on the original game’s success and introduce millions of mobile gamers to the rich Titanfall universe," Nexcon president and CEO Owen Mahoney said in a statement.
Following the announcement, Zampella expressed his enthusiasm on the partnership:
"Our partnership with Nexon is momentous for many reasons," Zampella said. "Nexon's unrivaled publishing network and free-to-play expertise will allow Titanfall to reach new global audiences. And with Particle City, we are closely collaborating to create all-new standalone games with original gameplay experiences that expand the Titanfall universe to players everywhere."
Apart from mobile titles, Respawn has confirmed that they are working on a sequel to Titanfall, which be a multi-platform title. The company is also working on a mysterious, non-titanfall project.
