Multiplayer mech shooter Titanfall has a sequel in the works according to developer Respawn Entertainment.
Talking to IGN, Respawn chief executive Vince Zampella confirmed that Titanfall 2 was in production, confirming comments made by EA chief financial officer Blake Jorgensen last month where he stated that they would 'probably have another 'Titanfall game'.
Zampella says that the sequel will ditch Titanfall's exclusivity to the Xbox and PC systems and will be fully multiplatform. They also want to change the way that DLC will work in the sequel, citing Evolve's free maps as an example of a good way of keeping the community together.
The studio does not have an official name yet for the project.
The Titanfall sequel is Respawn's main project at present but a second team will be working on some smaller projects as well. This second team will be headed up by former God of War creative director Stig Asmussen, who joined Respawn in 2014.
Titanfall was released on the Xbox One in March 2014 with the Xbox 360 version being delayed until April. It was the first released project for Respawn Entertainment, the studio formed by Zampella and Jason West, two of the principle developers of the Call of Duty franchise at Infinity Ward.
