At EA Play yesterday, Respawn Entertainment confirmed that, yes, Titanfall 2 will indeed have a single player campaign.
“Titanfall 2’s single-player is crafted to dive deeper into the Titanfall universe, exploring the unique bonds between Pilot and Titan, and taking full advantage of the movement and combat, to deliver a feeling a feeling of being unstoppable together,” EA’s Devin Bennett said.
In the embedded gameplay trailer, we find that your Titan has suddenly learned kung fu, can ground pound with the best of ’em, and wield a sword, just like a samurai. The trailer below also confirms that Titanfall 2 will fall on October 28, 2016 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
As for multiplayer, your Pilot has access to new abilities like teleportation, using gravity grenades, sliding, grappling another Pilot and anything else in mid-air. There also seems to be a bit of improvement of the gameplay itself here, touting improved AI, frenetic gameplay, more options to customize your Titan and Pilot than ever before, energy-based weaponry, all-new Titans.

My Take: I loved Titanfall, so seeing that Respawn is so willing to take another crack at it and add meaningful additions and changes to the way the game works, it instill a sense of confidence that this isn’t a rush job and that Respawn Entertainment actually cares whether or not this game is great or not.
