'Titanfall 2' Is Coming Back From The Dead Thanks To Steam

'Titanfall 2' Is Coming Back From The Dead Thanks To Steam

Titanfall 2 is easily one of the most underrated games of the current generation. A truly inventive, engaging, and chaotic shooter from Respawn Entertainment - one that ultimately failed (in terms of sales) because EA made the baffling decision to release it between Battlefield 1 and Call Of Duty: Infinite Warfare.

Despite being one of the most interesting games of the last decade, Titanfall 2 ultimately faded away into the crowded market. But as it turns out, you can't keep a great game down forever. The Respawn-developed shooter has found a second chance at life, thanks to its recent appearance on Steam.

EA has been adding its back catalogue to Steam for the last few months, and now that Titanfall 2 is in the mix, players are falling in love with it. The four-year-old game has only been on the digital storefront for a few days now, but it already has a concurrent player peak of 9,224 according to SteamDB.

At the time of writing, the game currently has 7,281 players active. To put this into comparison with the two major releases that originally eclipsed it, Battlefield 1 currently has 1,046 active players. Meanwhile, Infinite Warfare has just over 100. For further context, Battlefield V - which was added to Steam just a few weeks ago alongside Battlefield 1 - has 1,237 active players.

Titanfall 2 has absolutely smashed it, is what I'm trying to say. Could this newfound success be exactly what we need to convince EA that Titanfall 3 needs to happen? I probably wouldn't get your hopes up.

Respawn co-founder Vince Zampella revealed in a recent interview with IGN last month that while Titanfall is always on the minds of those at the studio, "there's nothing currently in development". Obviously not the news fans were hoping to hear, but there's some light on the horizon.

"You see the little bits of stuff coming back [via Apex Legends]," Zampella added. "At some point, I would personally like to see some kind of resurrection there. We'll see if I can make that happen."

For now then, all we can do is convince our friends, family, and pretty much anyone that's never played Titanfall 2 that now is the time to get stuck in. There really hasn't been a better opportunity in years, so if you've ever been curious to see what the fuss is about, join in on the fun while it's still popping off.
