Nexon-Helmed Project Titanfall Online Has Been Cancelled

The game was set to be a free-to-play version of the original Titanfall

Nexon has revealed that its Asia-focused free-to-play Titanfall project has been cancelled. According to a report by Game Focus, and translated by Kotaku, Titanfall Online had received negative results from player-testing.

Titanfall Online was revealed back in 2015. It was set to be a free-to-play PC retooling of the original Titanfall game, and was aiming for release in Hong Kong, China, Taiwan, South Korea and Japan. The project was being helmed by Nexon, in collaboration with Respawn and EA.

Speaking to Game Focus, as translated by Kotaku, a representative for the game had this to say about the failed project:

It is true that Nexon and EA have agreed to cancel Titanfall Online under a business decision. After much deliberation, it was decided that reallocating development resources to another project was better for the company.

It's not uncommon for publishers to place free-to-play versions of big-budget games into Asia-focused markets. In 2015, Activision did the same with Call of Duty, and EA has had success with a similar version of FIFA in the past.

As for Titanfall developer Respawn, it's busy working on a Star Wars game. The title was revealed to be Jedi: Fallen Order during EA's E3 2018 Press Conference, though little is known beyond that.
