Respawn sure isn't having a great time lately. Titanfall 2 didn't sell as well as they hoped (mostly due to its odd placement between two other first person shooters it didn't have a snowballs chance in hell competing with) and now Respawn have revealed that its mobile based card game, Titanfall: Frontline has been canceled.
The news follows previous reports of "unsatisfactory results" during the games beta testing periods. A short statement on the Titanfall; Frontline website reads:
"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. 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."
Those who have access to the beta have been notified that the game servers will shut down on Janurary 20th.
Frontline was touted at E3 2016 as a Titanfall 2 companion game where players could embrace the world of Titanfall on the go with a fast paced card game. It was being developed by Particle City, a mobile development team created within Respawn Entertainment. There is no word of any future projects for the team as of our writing.
Respawn Entertainment also have revealed that they are unsure if a Titanfall 3 is going to happen after the lackluster sales figures of Titanfall 2, despite it being one of the best reviewed games of 2016.
