Respawn has announced today that it's taking the original Titanfall off sale immediately — including on Xbox — with the game also set to be removed from EA Play and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate on March 1st, 2022.
In a message to fans, the company explained that it would continue to keep the servers active "for the dedicated fanbase still playing", and also promised that Titanfall's universe "will continue" in the future:
Titanfall was one of the first major exclusives of the Xbox One generation back in 2014, and went on to spawn another beloved sequel in 2016. Fortunately, Titanfall 2 remains unaffected by these changes (at least for now).
It's been a tough year for Titanfall fans with both of the games suffering major hacking issues over the past 12 months. However, the dedicated "community day" back in May proved that there's still a large audience who love these games, with Titanfall 2 boasting an impressive max peak of over 50,000 players across all platforms on Saturday, May 1st.
Let's hope there's still some life in the Titanfall franchise... we'd love to see a third game in the series.
