Titanfall Is Being Spun-Off Into A TV Series

In a new interview, the lead writer behind the Titanfall sequel has confirmed that he is working on spinning off Respawn Entertainment’s debut title into a TV series.

The piece, published on Forbes, confirms that Jesse Stern is working alongside a new series.

Stern was originally a writer on NCIS before becoming the lead writer for the first two Modern Warfare games, two of the series’ most critically acclaimed and popular releases. He also revealed that Vince Zampella, the chief executive of Respawn Entertainment, is interested in developing animated and scripted spin-offs for the Titanfall IP.

“We are trying to find a way to tell a story in the worlds we want to be in and produce in the TV model,” the writer said. Stern will be in Australia from March 9-11 for the Australian Writers’ Guild’s national screenwriters conference as a speaker.

The writer also said Titanfall 2 would do a much better job of telling a story, this time centered on “a vision of grand global colonial warfare” that put a space twist on America’s Civil War and Revolution.
