Titanfall is getting a mobile spinoff next year

But we don't know what it looks like yet

We still don't know what the sequel to fast-paced mech shooter Titanfall will look like, but next year will see the release of at least one new game in the franchise: only it will be on your phone. Titanfall developer Respawn Entertainment today announced a new collaboration with free-to-play publisher Nexon to create "several new and original smartphone and tablet games" set in the sci-fi universe. What those games will actually look like is unclear, but the first is set to hit both iOS and Android sometime next year, and will be developed by new mobile studio Particle City.

Titanfall made its debut last year as the first release from Respawn, a new studio formed by several key staff from Call of Duty developer Infinity Ward. The first game was a Microsoft exclusive, appearing on the Xbox One and PC, though the mysterious sequel is expected to be a multiplatform title. "With Particle City, we are closely collaborating to create all-new stand-alone games with original gameplay experiences that expand the Titanfall universe to players everywhere," Respawn CEO Vince Zampella says of the new games.

This isn't the first time Respawn and Nexon have worked together. Earlier this year, the two companies announced plans to launch a free-to-play Titanfall spinoff that would only be available in Asia. In fact, the Korean publisher appears intent on getting into the shooter market in a big way; Nexon will also serve as the publisher of LawBreakers, the upcoming debut game from Boss Key, a new studio headed by former Gears of War lead designer Cliff Bleszinski.
