Respawn has announced a new Titanfall game for smartphones. The mech-based multiplayer shooting game will be making its way to iOS and Android devices within 2016, due to a multi-year partnership with free-to-play game company Nexon. Mobile developer Particle City, a studio founded by Respawn's founder Vince Zampella, will develop the new game.
Respawn already has an existing partnership with Nexon that will bring a free-to-play version of Titanfall to all PCs across Asia. Respawn also said that they still have big plans for the series and are currently working on a Titanfall sequel, which won't be console exclusive and for Titanfall 2 which Respawn has confirmed is in development.
There hasn't been any details about what form the Titanfall mobile games might take, but Zampella stated that the first will not be a first-person shooter. Though it will take the gameplay in a new direction." Respawn and Nexon stated that the new mobile games will "deliver a high-quality game experience."
Titanfall launched last year for Xbox One, PC and Xbox 360 and for the most part had positive reviews, although its lack of campaign was criticised. On just Xbox and PC, Titanfall reached more than 10 million players. PlayStation 4, iOS and Android players, prepare for what Respawn has in store.
