Respawn Entertainment plans to add new game modes to Titanfall eventually, studio co-founder Vince Zampella confirmed on Twitter this week.
When asked if any additional game modes were “on the horizon” for Titanfall, Zampella very tersely answered “yes.” Of course, whether these new game modes will be among the free updates planned for Titanfall or included in one of the three DLC add-ons slated remains unknown.
At launch, and as it stands, Titanfall touts five modes: Attrition (a Team Deathmatch variant in which AI kills and Titan takedowns also contribute to the score), Last Titan Standing, Hardpoint Domination, Capture the Flag, and Pilot Hunter (a more traditional Team Deathmatch in which only Pilot kills count).
For some, these five modes do not represent enough variety,w hich has been one of the two chief complaints lobbied against Titanfall (the other being the quality of the multiplayer campaign’s story, though I don’t know what anyone was realistically expecting from that). In contrast, Call of Duty: Ghosts contains 13 game modes, plus its 4-player co-op Extinction mode.
In other TFall news, sources close to GameSpot and Polygon indicated that EA had secured the publishing rights to the inevitable sequel and that said sequel will not be a Microsoft exclusive. Microsoft also announced that the Xbox 360 version had been delayed another two weeks to April 8.
