Well… at least it’s something.
UPDATE: As it turns out, this was a case of misplaced expectations. Jay Frechette confirmed on ResetEra that the update is going to be related to Titan Toon. “Going to set expectations here,” he said. “For those of you not familiar with TitanToons, it’s an animated series that one of our awesome animators, Moy Parra produces in his free time. It’s been a while since he’s made anything new for it and folks have been asking for an update. The teaser is for an update to his YouTube channel. This doesn’t have anything to do with any games we’re working on.”
So, uh… that’s that. I hope we still do get a Titanfall 3 eventually, though.
So this is, uh, something. The official Titanfall Instagram account has posted a cryptic video, promising something for… tomorrow. The caption reads, “5.26.18 “Incoming Transmission” posted by Senior Animator at Respawn Entertainment. #PassItOn”, which, you know, also makes it sound like it’s a reasonably big deal (since it’s something they want actively shared and passed on).
Is it going to be Titanfall 3? I hope it is Titanfall 3, because Titanfall 2 was absolutely great. If it is Titanfall 3, I also hope EA has the good sense to not launch it right next to Battlefield again… oh god, they’re going to do that, aren’t they? It’s totally going to happen, won’t it?
Look, if you don’t understand why I am so excited, you need to go play Titanfall 2. It is out and available now on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, and it is one of the best shooters of the generation, with a hell of a campaign. You won’t regret it.
