The much-loved 2014 shooter Titanfall is being put to rest once and for all. Developer Respawn Entertainment has confirmed that it's halted sales of the game effective immediately, and that it's being pulled from all subscription services on March 1, 2022.
This upsetting decision comes after years of struggle. Respawn has been fighting against hackers and DDoS attacks for some time now, to the extent that the game would often become unplayable. Things got so bad that the once-beloved game eventually ended up with a "mostly negative" rating on Steam.
Clearly, at this point, Respawn figures it's easier to simply cut its losses and give up - especially considering the fact the studio's focus on Apex Legends meant that only a handful of staff were working on Titanfall anyway.
It's not all doom and gloom, though. Titanfall's servers will continue to be maintained for the "dedicated players" who already own the game still want to jump into a match every now and again. But if you haven't already purchased it? You're out of luck, friends.
Respawn also stressed in its announcement that the end of Titanfall the game doesn't mean the end of Titanfall the franchise. There is plenty more to come - although it's unclear if the developer was simply referring to more Apex Legends, which is of course part of the Titanfall universe.
"Rest assured, Titanfall is core to Respawn's DNA and this incredible universe will continue," the studio said. "Today in Titanfall 2 and Apex Legends, and in the future. This franchise is a north star for the calibre of experiences we will continue to create here at Respawn."
Titanfall 3 confirmed? No. But you already knew that. We've been doing this dance for years.
