Is the next Titanfall game a third-person adventure?

Job ads for a new game from Respawn are requiring applicants to have experience in third-person adventure games.


The art, animation and engineer roles all require knowledge of “working on 3rd person action/exploration games.”

We know Respawn is committed to Titanfall as a franchise and has already negotiated more in the series with publisher Electronic Arts.

Other requirements include working on “hero control/mechanics, enemy design, AI behaviors, combat/weapons, class design, skills/progression, story, and boss encounters” – which all sound very video game-y to us.

Of course that’s not to say these ads are for more in the Titanfall series, they could be for a new project entirely.

But how likely is that in a world where big studios knuckle down on one big game and publishers don’t really like to take risks outside of a proven formula – so is this Titanfall 2 or a spin-off away from the main first-person shooter?

Thanks MP1st.
