Nexon and Respawn unite to bring Titanfall to mobile in 2016

Nexon is continuing its aggressive investment in western IP with the news it will publish several mobile/tablet games based in the Titanfall universe.

Working with Respawn Entertainment, the creator of the console first-person mecha/shooter franchise (which is now getting a sequel), both companies have invested in US developer Particle City.

It will be working on the mobile games over the coming years.

Fresh take

Based in Los Angeles, Particle City was co-founded by industry veteran Larry Pacey and Respawn CEO Vince Zampella in 2015.

The first Titanfall mobile game is expected for iOS and Android sometime in 2016.

"Nexon's unrivaled publishing network and free-to-play expertise will allow Titanfall to reach new global audiences," commented Zampella.

"And with Particle City, we are closely collaborating to create all-new standalone games with original gameplay experiences that expand the Titanfall universe to players everywhere."
