The game's servers will remain operational.
Respawn’s original hit Titanfall will be removed from digital storefronts today and from subscription services like Xbox Game Pass and EA Play in March 2022.
The developer made the announcement over on Twitter.
“Titanfall is part of our DNA at Respawn,” the statement begins. “It’s a game that showcased the ambitions of the studio when it was first released more than 7 years ago and it continues to be a beacon of innovation that we strive for in all of our games.
“We’ve made the decision to discontinue new sales of the original Titanfall game starting today and we’ll be removing the game from subscription services on March 1, 2022. We will, however, be keeping servers live for the dedicated fanbase still playing and those who own the game and are looking to drop into a match.
“Rest assured, Titanfall is core to Respawn’s DNA and this incredible universe will continue. Today in Titanfall 2 and Apex Legends, and in the future. This franchise is a north star for the caliber of experiences we will continue to create here at Respawn. Thank you from the entire Respawn team.”
Respawn has earlier said that Titanfall and Titanfall 2 will not be getting a sequel (in favour of the successful free-to-play Apex Legends no doubt), then backtracking on the statement with a vague statement similar to today’s. Like, nearly identical in terms of the DNA stuff.
If you don’t have Titanfall and would like to own it, it seems like a secondhand physical copy is your best bet.
