Abbie Heppe, Respawn's community manager, has been kind enough to share some information about what we should expect to see in upcoming DLC, and about the franchise’s future.
In speaking with IGN, she confirmed that they will be adding some of the different and unique flora and fauna shown in the art book to give a more unique feel to the game, "We are going to have maps added, and we’re trying to give players as much of a varied look at things as we can so that is definitely a possibility."
As the name suggests, we might see “monsters” being introduced into Titanfall but we will not be seeing any new titans. Heppe confirmed that Ogre, Atlas and Stryder will remain the only options, and she also added that at one point it was almost as if we would have had only one titan in the game.
"That’s a real big question, in order to [add a Titan] it takes so much balancing to make all the Titan abilities work with each other, and then against pilots. It’s a huge undertaking. Originally we just had the Atlas titans and then the team refused to add in the rest of the Titans until we were all sure that that one fitted perfectly with everything else in the game, so... I’m not announcing any new Titans right now!"
Although the game has been received with high praise across the board, many still feel like the studio’s attempt at combining narrative to the multiplayer was not up to par. Hepp agreed to the criticism and added,
"We’re always looking towards iterating and what’s next and what we can learn. So would we do everything exactly the same way? I don’t think any game developer ever would tell you yes. I think we’re always looking at going bigger and better so we’ll see what happens in the future.
"I’m really, really happy with what the team has done though. As a start and exploring what narrative elements we can bring into multiplayer… being one of the first companies that’s doing it the way we did it, I’m pretty happy about that. It’s one of my favorite ways to play the game."
As for their future plans, she said they want to ensure a smooth launch across all territories and after which they will focus on the free updates (add other features including Private Matches) and then the DLC. As for whether the franchise will remain an Xbox One exclusive, this is what she had to say, "Vince, our CEO, has come out and said that while we’re exclusive for this game, it doesn't limit us regarding console exclusivity for any of the future things we do."
