It'll be a sad day when EA inevitably skullf****s Respawn's franchises into dust and shuts them down. Titanfall 2 was really good and now we'll never get another proper game from them.

I have never played one of your games but that does mean that I do not respect you or your accomplishments and thus I conclude this preemptive eulogy with: You daft dummies never deserved this.

It will be hilarious if in a couple of years they go back to Activision and then the cycle repeats itself.

Titanfall 2 was awesome. Looking forward to seeing all the shitty ways they will be forced to monetize their future games. It'll be one hell of a show.

While we're on this topic, I'm betting on Bioware to close doors next.

I bought Titanfall 2 cause it wasn't by EA.
Every EA title I have bought in the past was full of cheaters and EA doesn't seem to care.

EA (and a few others) should just start selling casino slot machines with a screen rolling in "unlocked" "achievement" and/or "copper" "silver" "gold" "platinum" "premium" "Boost" "case" "insert coin again looser*cough* i mean, badass pro skillz RGB enthusiast winner!"

Well, you know cheaters will be allowed to run rampant through the game. And we also know that there will be plenty of glitches and flaws to contend with. As there are in BF1 and other EA/Dice games. I guess the cash buyout was so attractive they lost interest in preserving the respect they once had.

Titanfall 2 is a game with the right mix of fun and re-playability. Titanfall was the only shooter I like playing on console and Titanfall 2 was among my favorite games of all time on PC.

Now comes EA... You have to worry about EA taking anyone over these days.
I played Battlefield 3 and 4 almost exclusively for years! Then comes BF1 and I couldn't stand it after a month. EA ruined the Battlefield series with BF1 by turning it into SW Battlefront only WWI style. It's become terrible. EA took whatever it was that was great out of the BF series. EA has to be feeling the hit as everyone I know who was also religiously playing BF3 and BF4 have just stopped with BF1; a screeching halt of sorts.

I absolutely do not look forward to EA ruining Titanfall. I'm inclined to think it will become another SW Battlefront clone (like BF1) with different skins. Lipstick on a pig!

I hope all of the creative people at Respawn were paid well for this whole ordeal? And I hope they quit EA and start another development studio before they accept the mediocrity EA is pushing these days.

The good thing shaking out from the demise of the Battlefield series - for me personally and others I know who were once Battlefield enthusiasts - is it drove me to play Destiny 2 which, so far, has been a blast. They have some kinks to work out (especially with player comms), but it's got the fun-factor.

And... It's not EA! So it shouldn't be thrown into any SWBF mold anytime soon!
