Respawn Launches Site Teasing “Original” Titanfall Story Content
Respawn Entertainment is readying a “live action epic” based in the Titanfall universe.
The project, which was revealed via a recently launched teaser site, will be made in collaboration with the film group Playfight which specializes in visual effects, animation and motion graphics among other things. Playfight, in the past, has been involved in post production work on Call of Duty’s Operation Kingfish and Rocket Jump’s Video Game High School series. According to Respawn’s Dusty Welch, the game studio is quite happy with this partnership.
“Titanfall is set in a rich near future universe with visceral, epic battles with pilots and their Titan companions,” he said in a statement.” We wanted to partner with Playfight, who has a history of delivering movies that meld gameplay, live action and stellar CG into truly entertaining media, for Titanfall.”
While the announcement didn’t say exactly what Respawn and Playfight have planned, it confirmed that it will be “original content” aimed at expanding the story of Titanfall. The teaser site, in turn, is currently counting down to midnight March 11th, after which we’ll have to assume more will be revealed.
