“Titanfall it’s part of the DNA of Respawn. It’s a game that has showcased the studio’s ambitions since it was released over 7 years ago, and continues to be a guiding star for the innovation we seek in all of our games.
We made the decision to discontinue sales of the Titanfall original from today [quarta-feira, 1] and we will remove the game from subscription services on March 1, 2022. However, we will keep the servers active for dedicated fans who are still playing and those who own the game and are eager to join a match.
rest assured that Titanfall it is the core of the DNA of Respawn and this incredible universe will continue. Today in Titanfall 2 and Apex Legends, and in the future. This franchise is a benchmark for the caliber of experiences we’ll continue to create here at Respawn.
Thanks, from the entire Respawn team.”
