Respawn Teases New VR Project With Oculus, Confirms It Has Nothing to Do With Titanfall

Respawn is moving on from the mecha-shooter for now.

News by Caty McCarthy, .

It's been nearly a year since Titanfall 2 was sandwiched between two other massive first-person shooters. In many ways, it felt like Titanfall 2 was marched off to die in the clutter, despite being the best of the three (at least, in this writer's opinion).

Respawn is still kicking though, despite Titanfall 2's rough commercial performance. Earlier this year, they helped work on a Titanfall mobile game, Titanfall: Assault, developed by their sister company Particle City. Their next project has seen another unlikely alliance in the technology world: a partnership with virtual reality juggernaut Oculus.

Announced via Twitter today (and during today's Oculus Connect event), Respawn teased a new partnership with Oculus, where they're developing "an amazing first-person combat experience" for the VR platform. One inquisitive fan joked, "Titanfall 3: VR" in the replies to the Tweet, to which Respawn replied with a succinct "Nope." In a blog detailing the partnership, Respawn reiterates that the VR experience will not be Titanfall or Star Wars related.

In a a mostly behind-the-scenes teaser video about the project shown during today's Oculus Connect event, it is heavily hinted to be war related. Respawn notes that the wholly new title is still in very early development, and they're eyeing a release window of 2019. In the meantime, Titanfall 2 is still pretty great.
