New Titanfall games in development for smartphones and tablets
Respawn Entertainment and Nexon are working together to create brand new Titanfall games for mobile devices.
Particle City, a new mobile-centric studio co-founded by Respawn Entertainment CEO Vince Zampella, is the company behind the development of these new mobile games. The first one is set to release worldwide for iOS and Android in 2016.
According to Zampella, the partnership with Nexon is momentous. Nexon has great skill with free-to-play games that will help the new Titanfall reach a worldwide audience. Particle City will be helpful in creating new gameplay elements that expand the Titanfall universe to all players:
"Our partnership with Nexon is momentous for many reasons. 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 experience that expand the Titanfall universe to players everywhere."
Nexon's CEO Owen Mahoney also commented upon the partnership, stating that they plan on building on the original game's success and introducing the franchise to millions of players worldwide:
"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."
Nexon already has a hand in the Titanfall franchise as well. In August, they announced a partnership with Electronic Arts (EA) to develop and publish a free-to-play version of Titanfall for the Asian Market entitled Titanfall Online.
Respawn is also working on a direct sequel to Titanfall, confirmed earlier this year, which will no longer be an Xbox exclusive; the sequel is in development for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
