Adding additional Titans to Titanfall as DLC would be ‘a huge undertaking’

Adding additional Titans to Titanfall would be “a huge undertaking,” according to Respawn community manager Abbie Heppe.

When asked about the possibility of seeing additional Titans as future DLC by IGN, Heppe explained that it’s likely that Atlas, Ogre, and Stryder will be the only models available for the foreseeable future. ”That’s a real big question,” she said. “In order to [add a Titan] it takes so much balancing to make all the Titan abilities work with each other, and then against pilots. It’s a huge undertaking.

“Originally we just had the Atlas titans and then the team refused to add in the rest of the Titans until we were all sure that that one fitted perfectly with everything else in the game, so… I’m not announcing any new Titans right now!”

Heppe also discussed the reactions to the game’s campaign multiplayer. “We’re always looking towards iterating and what’s next and what we can learn,” she added. “So would we do everything exactly the same way? I don’t think any game developer ever would tell you yes. I think we’re always looking at going bigger and better so we’ll see what happens in the future.

“I’m really, really happy with what the team has done though. As a start and exploring what narrative elements we can bring into multiplayer… being one of the first companies that’s doing it the way we did it, I’m pretty happy about that. It’s one of my favorite ways to play the game.”

Titanfall will receive three DLC packs in the future, which can be purchased ahead of time, at a discount, via the season pass for $24.99.
