Another Titanfall game will launch this year

...But it's still not Titanfall 3.

Cheer up Titanfall fans - it's not all gloom and doom. Despite Respawn producer Drew McCoy telling Eurogamer Titanfall 3 was not currently in development, this isn't the end for the Titanfall franchise, as a new game is set to release by the end of 2019.

Just what this will be, however, remains something of a mystery.

The news was initially teased by Respawn CEO Vince Zampella, who last night dropped the "T word" on Twitter to promise more Titanfall content this year. It's worth noting his phrasing here, which hints this will be another "experiment" in the Titanfall universe.

Titanfall's card battling spin-off has been cancelled

But another Titanfall mobile game is planned.

Back in September Titanfall developer Respawn announced the card combat spin-off Titanfall: Frontline, but alas, that game has just been cancelled.

"We've learned an incredible amount in the beta test of Titanfall: Frontline, but in the end felt the experience wasn't ready to deliver the intense action-packed gameplay synonymous with Titanfall," developer Particle City state on the game's Facebook page.

That said, the studio founded by Respawn boss Vince Zampella plans to give another crack at making a Titanfall mobile title. "While it's never easy to cancel a game, we're excited to take some of the concepts we saw resonate with players and build off of them in future Titanfall mobile games," the developer said.

Titanfall 2 fails to beat Titanfall sales in UK

Launch sandwiched between Battlefield 1 and Call of Duty probably didn't help.

Titanfall 2 launch sales failed to match up to those of its predecessor in the UK.

Titanfall came out on Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC, although its physical sales on PC were negligible. Titanfall 2 launched on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, and again, physical sales were negligible.

Titanfall 2 confirmed for Q4 launch

Titanfall 2 confirmed for Q4 launch

Mechs, magic and swords. Oh my!

Titanfall is is slated for a Q4 release, publisher EA has confirmed.

This approximate release window was officially revealed in an earnings report, where it noted that Respawn's recently announced sequel will arrive in the third quarter of fiscal year 2017, which is actually the fourth quarter of calendar year 2016.

This falls in line with a previously leaked release window teased in a piece of marketing material for McFarlane Toy's Titanfall line-up. But that only said "winter" and that it would be "in conjunction" with the game's release, so it could have meant the game wouldn't follow until early 2017.

Developer Respawn released the following teaser trailer noting that a full reveal will follow on 12th June at EA Play, the publisher's pre-E3 event.

We've known for some time that Respawn would be making a Titanfall sequel and that it will feature a single-player campaign, unlike the first game.
