Titanfall 2 fans who missed out on the original game will now have an especially difficult time finding a copy of it. As noted in a recent letter from Repsawn, Titanfall’s sales have been discontinued, and the game will be removed from subscription services on March 1, 2022. While Titanfall’s servers will be kept online for an unspecified period, its listings on services such as Origin are already returning a 404.

The full letter from Respawn, as shared on its official Twitter account:

Pilots,

Titanfall is part of our DNA at Respawn. 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

Released on March 11, 2014, Titanfall is one of the more notable shooters of the past decade in that it mixed traditional on-foot gameplay with giant mechs called Titans. Unlike its 2016 sequel, Titanfall only features mulitplayer; there is no campaign mode.

  1. This is why single player games should’ve no online requirement. Companies care nothing for game preservation. I know titanfall is a multiplayer game, but the same will happen to every game regardless of being multiplayer only or single player, their servers will get shut down.

    Intstead of de-listing it they should make the game permanently free and release a dedicated server for it. Of course that will never happen, what put effort into a game we make no money off of?

    I’m ok with using Online for stuff in single-player games where it makes sense. You’re right though, a ~requirement~ is ridiculous.

    That said, the article does specify they aren’t talking about shutting down the servers (at least yet).

  3. I don’t understand delisting the game though. Was having it listed costing them licensing costs for every sale so they were in effect loosing money by selling the game for any price? Maybe they have to pay a song licensing fee for every copy sold.

    And what about people that had a box set for the game with a code to register it with a service? Will that still work?
