Titanfall’s Weyland Yutani is the IMC
Weyland Yutani, the Resources Development Administration, and the Interstellar Manufacturing Corporation. You probably recognize the first two evil fictional companies from Alien and Avatar. The third? Titanfall’s spin on the sci-fi convention.
We’ve already learned about Titanfall’s good guys, the Militia. Now Respawn has unveiled the faction the Militia will be doing battle with: Interstellar Manufacturing Corporation (IMC). They’re a galaxy-wide conglomerate that mines the precious resources used to make Titans. They also walk all over the people of the Frontier. From Respawn:
With the Frontier’s valuable shipping lanes and vast planetary resources ripe for exploitation, the IMC is dedicated to maximizing profits and shareholder wealth, using the legal application of force when necessary.
The IMC also has one seriously nutty looking leader, Graves. If you’re brave enough, gaze deep into his crazy eyes:
I surrender! JUST STOP LOOKING AT ME LIKE THAT.
Also, stay tuned. Respawn is set to make its official Titanfall beta launch announcement sometime “early this week.”
