EA and Respawn Discontinues New Sales of Original Titanfall - News

Electronic Arts and Respawn Entertainment have decided to discontinue new sales of the original Titanfall game starting today and it will be removed from subscription services on March 1, 2022.

"Titanfall is part of our DNA at Respawn. It's a game that showcased the ambitions of the studio when it was first released more than 7 years ago and it continues to be a beacon of innovation that we strive for in all of our games," said Respawn.

"We’ve made the decision to discontinue new sales of the original Titanfall game starting today and we’ll be removing the game from subscription services on March 1, 2022. We will, however, be keeping servers live for the dedicated fanbase still playing and those who own the game and are looking to drop into a match.

"Rest assured, Titanfall is core to Respawn's DNA and this incredible universe will continue. Today in Titanfall 2 and Apex Legends, and in the future. This franchise is a north star for the caliber of experience we will continue to create here at Respawn."

Titanfall released for the Xbox One and PC in March 2014.

you forgot to mention the XBOX 360 too. It released for it as well, and it is still live.

Not sure even the Guardians of the Galaxy can sort this out... (:

Seems an odd statement that contradicts itself. As a multiplayer only game, make sense to pull it from sale ahead of the servers being shutdown, but they say they’re staying online. So what is thinking here?

Also, it’s been 5 years since the last Titanfall with no new game on the horizon, so this “core to our DNA” seems like a load of PR nonsense. Apex Legends may as well a separate franchise.

Keeping enough servers online for the few that want to play that old of a game instead of modern ones is cheaper than keeping more servers around for a potentially increasing amount of players.

Perhaps so few people are buying the original Titanfall, and Titanfall 2 is a better game anyway, that they're sacrificing little in sales revenue to end it. It likely does presage eventually turning off the servers, but down the road they can say they stopped selling the game x-years ago. In the meantime, better to maintain the servers because of the good PR it gives them.
