This is a studio who made 2 solid games in few years, without much internal trouble. I guess this is a rare asset this days.

I hope all the employees will start saving as much money as possible before the inevitable happens and they start looking for work.

Bye Respawn. It was nice meeting you before everything in your games was based around loot boxes and bad design decisions forced by your publisher (and now owner)

Hopefully everyone manages to land on their feet once they are shut down in 4-5 years. Management got a nice paycheck right now but the average employee won't have it as easy.

Appears to me like this is a move to bolster the stable of developers for Star Wars titles, plus wasn't that the rumor awhile back?

Regardless, RIP Titanfall, you deserved much better.

Titanfall may as well be dead. This announcement is essentially telling us that Respawn will be slaving away at Star Wars for years to come. Here's hoping they actually get to release their game before being shuttered.

You know around here MS buying Respawn would have resulted in the same "whelp RIP Respawn"

But with additional "MS only likes shooters/maybe now we will get a good Halo" bullshit thrown on top.

Didn't Titanfall 2 underperform? If the same happens with Titanfall 3(and i can see it happening since EA loves throw all ips in the november bloodbath) i can see they dying.

I believe so, but I guess now EA have literally more invested in Respawns games moving forward, and so perhaps will spare them the same next time. But there is also the possibility that their new Titanfall game is a mobile app, that their VR game is a 10 minute titan pilot 'experience', and that they will forever after be budgeted seriously only for making star wars stuff in full or part..

Another one bites the dust.

It's funny though, since the guys from respawn were from EA before going to activision, hating EA in the process.

Could we get a tease of their Star Wars project at the VGA's.?

Pretty unimpressed with EA this generation, could care less for FIFA and their sports games, the IPs I have been interested in have been let downs.

Good move on respawn's part not so sure about the rest of us. Seems like a fair bit of cash for the people at respawn and EA gets one of the major IP's of this generation and a solid development studio.

I dislike EA and the way they abuse their customer base through microtransactions and DLC, I think they are scum in that regards. It will be interesting to see if titanfall 3 has crates and garbage in it. I certainly won't be there day one like I was for the last two if there is any hint of it.

Terrible move here, Respawn will get closed down at the first sign of a game failing to meet projections.

Titanfall 3 would do it if the Titanfall 2 sales dip is anything to go by. They might as well take their time and make quality licensed games because that is the only way their games are going to sell.
