Titanfall 2 will have a single-player campaign, the game’s lead writer confirmed for Forbes in an interview. Moreover, developing studio Respawn Entertainment is looking into a companion TV series about Titanfall, to premiere when the game launches.

In a podcast interview about a year ago, Titanfall’s community manager hinted at a traditional campaign. Jesse Stern has confirmed to Forbes that is a part of the game.

Stern’s writing credits include Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 in addition to a five-year stint on the CBS crime drama NCIS. He told Forbes that he is working with Lionsgate TV on a series set in Titanfall’s sci-fi world.

Stern acknowledged that the cost of doing so could be large, so the TV plans do not seem to have a formal commitment yet.

Titanfall 2, however, is fully a go for Respawn Entertainment and publisher Electronic Arts, launching sometime before March 2017. Titanfall 2 will not be exclusive to the Xbox One, meaning this project should bring in more money than its predecessor and thus, have more resoures for development.

Forbes has a lot more in its conversation with Stern about his vision for the Titanfall universe and how to communicate that to players, who he suggests were a little disconnected from that world in a multiplayer-only Titanfall.

Although he has been gaming since the Sega Mega Drive launched in 1990, he still sucks at most games. When not being trash he watches French horror films, drinks herbal tea and secretly loves the music of Taylor Swift.
