“Titanfall 2,” supposedly the sequel to Respawn Entertainment’s shooter title released in early 2014, had been rumoured in production as early as 2014. Now, there are some details surfacing for the sequel, with regard to its direction and possible platform releases.

In an interview with Forbes, developer Respawn Entertainment revealed that the production for the sequel had started way back in 2014. The plan now for the sequel is to expand where “Titanfall” did not manage to touch on due to limited resources. With over 10 million users who have played “Titanfall” at its height, the developer is now able to create a single-player campaign for “Titanfall 2.”

“The multi-player game will be even better than it was the first time around,” said “Titanfall” Lead Writer Jesse Stern to Forbes. “What inspires us is the junction of technological advancement with the inevitability of conflict and war and what the next war might look like.”

Stern made mention of the retelling of the American Revolution and Civil War set in space as the possible direction for the sequel. It may be a mix of both science and magic, so as to not solely bank on the scientific approach to “Titanfall 2.” Of course, this is in the backdrop of an entirely human setting, so it would be interesting how the developer will weave of all those elements into the narrative and the gameplay.

As far as any release dates and time frames is concerned, Respawn Entertainment does not appear ready to talk about it yet. Electronic Arts, which is the distributor for the game, did mention that it may be out come fiscal 2017. This is based on the usual timeline of game creation, which is pegged at a two-year interval, putting the release date of “Titanfall 2” somewhere between late 2016 to early 2017 at the safest bet.

Way back in 2014, when the sequel for “Titanfall” had already been rumoured for development, there was speculation that the sequel will not be a Microsoft exclusive like its predecessor. While neither publisher EA nor developer Respawn Entertainment commented back then on the lack of exclusivity, an anonymous source had reported to Polygon that it may see release beyond Microsoft’s consoles.

The report had also pointed out to previous clues that Respawn founder Vince Zampella had left on twitter. He had stated that the studio will make games that will be released on the PS4 as well. Without dropping the name of “Titanfall 2,” there have also been clues way back that the exclusivity deal for “Titanfall” will not see a repeat for its sequel.
