Rumour: Is Titanfall 2 Stomping onto PS4 in the Near Future?

Posted by Sammy Barker

It's a secret

Pseudo Xbox One exclusive Titanfall is a strange game. The first-person shooter – created by ex-Call of Duty makers Respawn Entertainment – was championed as the second coming of your chosen religious prophet for an outrageously long time, and then it just disappeared in the blink of an eye. As far as we’re aware, the title’s still selling well – but for a release that was supposed to redefine online multiplayer, it seemed to fade as quick as it came.

Of course, for a franchise now with a pretty big name, that’s not stopped rumours regarding a sequel from circulating. In fact, in the hours prior to E3 2014, the Wall Street Journal reported that a follow-up is currently “in the planning stages” – and that it will be coming to the PlayStation 4. With publisher EA Games and Microsoft’s close relationship seemingly on the rocks at this year’s Los Angeles-based event, that wouldn’t surprise us at all.

Alas, neither publisher nor developer is ready to reveal anything yet. “We have nothing to announce at this particular point in time,” Australian gaffer Andrew Wilson told Eurogamer.net. Respawn Entertainment’s chief Vince Zampella was similarly coy. “No decisions have been made; that'll be next week,” he said, perhaps hinting at some kind of internal brainstorming session.

EA Games recently extended its partnership with the Titanfall developer, meaning that the North American giant will publish the studio’s next game. Despite the secrecy, though, we reckon that it’s likely that you’ll be playing whatever the firm cooks up with a DualShock 4 in hand. After all, as we wrote earlier in the year, the robotic first-person shooter had a real shot at taking Call of Duty’s crown – but passing on the industry’s current most popular platform really limited its overall commercial clout.

I would like to try out a Titanfall game on PS4. I would like it even more for the next Titanfall to have a sp campaign too

People either got bored and moved on, still playing or wasn't interested in the lack of a single player mode. That is why hype is a dangerous tactic, which almost never pays off.

@Punished_Boss This game was unusually hyped as well. It's pretty common for the impact of a game to get exaggerated in this industry, but I've never seen anything like Titanfall before.

Ooh, did I miss something? How is it 'on the rocks'?

Titanfall was an odd one... it seemed to gain hype more for who Respawn are, rather than the game being itself being anything special. Indeed, from what I read about it, it was actually a very average title, technically speaking.

And appearently we all really wrong about why the game exclusive to MS. They actually went to Sony first as the budget was running out, but they didn't it, do they went to MS who funded the game.

lot ppl call it titanfallasleep on xbone lack guns lack of game modes lack ppl playing it i think its a good start with what they did to titanfall from what i have seen of it there biggest problem was not having ps4 on it so i guess number 2 will out sell and have way more players playing it for sure but will it last or will it be to dull all games need a good multi and a good sp so many ppl like to do one more than the other but its nice to have both there im excited to play it for my self will it beat cod and bf prob not but its a start right

Didn't care before the release, don't care now, I got plenty to play as is and to me it's just another generic, fast paced shooter + mechs. I rather play Mechwarrior Online (just Mechs) or Destiny than this.

@RawWilson1 couldn't agree more the thought of putting my game into my console in 10 years time and there being literally nothing to play puts me off titanfall as much as I want to play it online only is off putting and makes the game seem more expensive to me

@get2sammyb I really think the hype when this game was first announced was one of three things. 1. The name itself was cool so the hype was raised. 2. while it wasn't exclusive just the Xbox it wasn't on the PS4. 3. The lead developers were from infinity ward.

This is the only Mech based game that I've seen completely hyped beyond oblivion. I knew it would die out pretty fast, considering I have yet to see Mech based games be so popular.

I would be playing Titanfall this very moment, IF it had an offline single player campaign. Instead, I'm sitting on an Xbox One with no games, patiently awaiting Sunset Overdrive.

Personally, I don't care about this game or whether it gets a sequel. No offline single player = no buy.

The first titanfall was boring, the only thing I can't seem to believe is with mechs and people jumping around, the game never lagged at all! CoD needs to extract from this and I would pick it up but they won't and I'm not buying. Titanfall 2 is going to be dead on arrival, very few play titanfall now I can't get upset at the quality cause its better then CoD but its missing alot! Maybe they will bring more content this time but ps4 didn't miss a thing!

The reason for no single player being in there because 'nobody plays it' is complete bs and lazy, imo. The next one needs to have single player and from what I remember, Zampella wasn't too pleased with the lack of a PS4 version. Hopefully EA isn't stupid enough to do something similar with the inevitable sequel but it is EA.

Destiny has better multiplayer and that is just as a SIDE component, not to mention the actual game has a huge world full of missions and loot. Titanfall needed amazing multiplayer to pull off a multiplayer only game but it didn't succeed, lack of content dragged it down.
