Respawn Entertainment have seemingly been quite busy overnight, addressing reports of the future of their popular Titanfall series.

It started after comments made by Respawn community manager Jason Garza on an episode of his own regular Morning Tea livestream show. As reported by Dexerto, Garza was taking questions from fans when the subject of Titanfall came up. “Don’t get your hopes up man. I’ve said this before. We don’t have anything in the works. There’s nothing. There’s nothing there. We’ve got too many other games in the works right now.”

Though it seemed like a fairly open and shut case, a tweet a few hours later from the company appeared to dispute reports that Titanfall was all but dead. “Contrary to what some folks are reporting,” the official account wrote, “Titanfall is the very core of our DNA. Who knows what the future holds…”

Of course, it’s not confirming anything is in the works but it’s at least interesting that the company felt it was specifically worth issuing a denial. The last game in the series was 2016’s excellent Titanfall 2. It’s remained dormant ever since, although has shown up in the studio’s current ongoing shooter Apex Legends, which is set in the same universe.

Who knows, maybe they’re thinking of bringing the series back in Pog a mobile card game form like another popular long-dormant series recently announced? Uh oh.
