    I'd rather not sugarcoat it here folks. Titanfall 2 is kinda dead. I tried to get back into playing it recently and I couldn't find one game. Not for Attrition nor even for Frontier Defence. Of course this could just be very well the London servers since I live in the UK and maybe people in the U.S. might have much better luck but Titanfall 2's population in general is depressingly low.

    But there is a silver lining here. If my math is correct, if my sources are to be believed and if the star's are aligned correctly we will definitely be looking at information to do with Titanfall 3 at some point later this year. Hopefully we'll be looking at an E3 announcement.

    But we're not talking about that. What we're talking about here is the possibility that the Titanfall 2 population might spark up one last time at some point right before and after Titanfall 3 is announced. People might come back to play it for nostalgia's sake, to ready themselves for what's to come or even to find out what Titanfall 2 was like in the first place.

    I'm not gonna claim to be an expert at predicting the intention of a whole community but we could and probably should take advantage of this if it actually happens.

    And let's hope it does.

    Yeah, its possible. Especially with EA being at the wheel now, I would expect them to want to push out another release even sooner than Respawn would if they were still on their own and even when Respawn was on their own, it was at around the 2 years and 2 months mark where they announced TF2, so keeping that same timeframe would put it around December 2018 for the announcement. Like I said though, I could see that timeline being speeded up under EA, so I wouldn't be surprised if they announced something in June 2018 with plans for it it to come out some time between December 2018 and March 2019. An announcement probably would breathe a little life back into the TF2 user base.

    Titanfall 2 is not dead. It is still an awesome game that I am totally addicted to. The freedom of movement and infinity of combinations of things to do and try and a list of never ending skills to learn propel me. There are complaints eg, the lack of maps, but even still, I focus on the learning curve which is never ending. I very much look forward to TF 3 and just hope that they do not go off the wall with major nonsensical changes for the sake of change. Hopefully they will let us modify or customize our titans a bit more and PLEASE quit nerfing guns and action to accommodate those who do not want to put the time in to learn how to take advantage of the capabilities.

    I don't think the population is going to increase.

    Titanfall is a niche game. There might be a slight uptick when Titanfall 3 is announced but definitely not anything substantial. I also wouldn't expect any information about Titanfall 3 until E3 of next year.

    TF1 was HUGE just before TF2 was launched. I was rolling with a full squad the day before tf2 launch, many people were on. Then midnight, day of launch, servers came online for tf2 and we played all night and into the day! Between tf1 and tf2 I has 26hrs online straight! 99% win avg!

    "Clearly Canadian"?

    Uhh... I'm Scottish.

    Don't worry though, Canadian's and Brit's have pretty deep historical heritage with each other so you're not exactly wrong.

    Xbone was close to 10000 players nights and weekends for 1-2 weeks after Xmas. Last night 7500, so it has faired better population-wise that TF1 at this point as far as I can remember. Seems to me that TF1 hovered around 3000 at peak times once it was over a year old. Would the spike in players right after Xmas indicate new players that just got the game even though it's over a year old or was it just the young guns home for vacation?

    Hi Battle,
    Canuckistanian....love it. I have been looking for this handle for a long time. I am proud to say that I live in Canuckistan and we actually have the best potassium in the world. I dare anyone to challenge me on that.
