Respawn’s Titanfall 2 (or whatever it’ll be called) will include a single-player campaign, the game’s writer has said.

Speaking to Forbes, Titanfall 2 lead writer Jesse Stern confirmed the news, adding that the shooter sequel will "deliver a vision of grand global colonial warfare retelling the story of the American Revolution and the American Civil War in space.”

Stern also said that he reckons Titanfall 2 will be multiplatform, basically confirming a long-held assumption. The original game launched as an Xbox console-exclusive and did not feature a proper single-player campaign.

“The multi-player game will be even better than it was the first time around,” said Stern. “The first game was an Xbox exclusive (initially). This one is going to be widely available, I believe on all platforms.”

“One of the shortcomings of the first game was we just did not have the mechanism to tell everyone ‘here’s who you are, here’s where you are and who’s around you.’ We knew all the answers, we just could not deliver it.

“So we are doing our best to deliver a vision of grand global colonial warfareretelling the story of the American Revolution and the American Civil War in space,” continued Stern. “We imagined the next generation of immigrants moving out to the new frontier of an inhabitable planet.”

“Rather than taking a traditional sci-fi approach to that we wanted to look at how that would happen practically, what the ships would look like and with machines that were designed for excavation and construction , demolition and working the land, and what happens when they are turned into instruments of war.”

“What inspires us is the junction of technological advancement with the inevitability of conflict and war and what the next war might look like. In Titanfall 2 there will be a lot of [scenes] where science meets magic, but keeping it grounded and dirty and human and real.”

Titanfall 2 does not currently have a release date. Stern said that Respawn is "only a little past a year into it" and that "sometime late this year or early next seems like the right neighbourhood (for completion)".
