Can Titanfall 2 Go Head to Head With Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare?
The first TitanFall generated a lot of hype but failed to keep players interested for too long. It lacked a proper story mode and its repetitive gameplay made it feel redundant quickly. However, one thing it did right was lay down the foundation of what could possibly be a COD killer.
That was the original idea for TitanFall, wasn’t it? Create something that could outdo COD.
Due to many of its shortcomings, TitanFall 1 didn’t do what it was suppose to. But with its sequel, Respawn will try its best to overcome these issues and create a game that could live up to their original promises.
TitanFall 2 will have its work cut for it though if it releases this year. It would not only go up againts Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare but Battlefield 1 as well.
The good news for EA and its TitanFall 2 is that Call of Duty is vulnerable right now and Battlefield 1 has taken already plenty of positive attention away from Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, and made many realize how tired they are of COD’s same old recycling warfare.
Activision has been at the helm of of AAA shooters for a long time and it seems the throne is finally open for all to grab.
Infinite Warfare is TitanFall without mechs and a storyline. However, if TitanFall 2 manages to deliver a compelling storyline and improve upon the shortcomings of its predecessor, COD would be in serious trouble.
COD’s story has been weak for a long time, the last really emotionally engaging story was featured in Black Ops. Devs working on the same game for so long have worn out their creative tools. Meanwhile, Activision refuses to bring in new folks or at least take series off the pedestal for a couple of years.
Which is exactly what EA did with Battlefield 1, sometime off gave devs room to built something special.
TitanFall 2, if done right, has now the best chance of taking over Call of Duty’s place. Those looking for sci-fi settings are tempted to play TitanFall 2, which should be a worry concering for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare and its premise.
If EA wants the throne, TitanFall 2 is its best chance to do.
