Titanfall is headed to your smartphones next

PS4 owners have been waiting for Titanfall since its first unveiling, but while it has been confirmed that the game will never be hitting the Sony console, it has now been revealed to be headed to Android and iOS devices. Well, it’s of course not the exact same game and it’s not even a sequel; this offering will be a mobile spin-off for the franchise.

The mech-based first person shooter created quite a storm when it hit the scene with its unique offerings back in 2014. Developed by Call of Duty veterans under the studio name Respawn Entertainment, Titanfall first arrived for the Xbox One, and later hit the Xbox 360 and PC, thus exhibiting its Microsoft exclusivity.

The development duties of the mobile version will be handled by Particle City, a mobile-focused studio that has been co-founded by Vince Zampella who happens to be the boss of Respawn. As for the publishing of Titanfall’s mobile version, it will be taken care of by Korean gaming giant, Nexon.

The involvement of the latter company more than confirms that this title will be a free-to-play offering that will embrace micro-transactions. The Android and iOS version of Titanfall isn’t out until 2016 in case you’re eager to get your hands on it.

Respawn Entertainment has also announced a sequel for the original game which is still to receive a firm release time frame. More important is the fact that this title will be launched not only for the Xbox One and PC, but also for the PS4.

A Titanfall game being developed for mobile devices is evidence of the fact that its makers want to develop it into a franchise to keep reaping long-term benefits.
