Titanfall 2 Solo Campaign & TV Ambitions Revealed

We haven't heard much about Titanfall 2 since the shooter sequel was confirmed last May, but now an interview on Forbes with lead writer Jesse Stern says the game will feature a full dedicated single-player campaign and that they are exploring the possibility of a television spin-off based on the game (thanks PCGamesN). Here's word on the game's storyline:
So we are doing our best to deliver a vision of grand global colonial warfare retelling the story of the American Revolution and the American Civil War in space. We imagined the next generation of immigrants moving out to the new frontier of an inhabitable planet. Rather than taking a traditional sci-fi approach to that we wanted to look at how that would happen practically, what the ships would look like and with machines that were designed for excavation and construction , demolition and working the land, and what happens when they are turned into instruments of war.

“What inspires us is the junction of technological advancement with the inevitability of conflict and war and what the next war might look like. In Titanfall 2 there will be a lot of [scenes] where science meets magic, but keeping it grounded and dirty and human and real.”

Out of the Blue

Happy Super Bowl Sunday! If it was up to me, it would have been Super Bowl Saturday, the game would have been played last night, and everyone could be sleeping off their hangovers today. But no, it's a party on a school night, so play safe. Here's hoping it's a good game, I share concerns that there's potential for a blowout here, but you never know until the pigskin starts flying. The pool is a done deal, but if I had to pick a winner I'd go with Carolina.
