As the seventh anniversary of Titanfall 2 looms on the horizon, slated for 28th October, the game’s community is ripe with speculation, thanks to a series of recent updates by Respawn Entertainment. Last month, the developer rolled out improvements to the game’s matchmaking system while sneakily embedding hidden references to the launch dates of Titanfall, Titanfall 2, and Apex Legends within the game.
The flurry of cryptic additions didn’t escape the keen eyes of the gaming community. Redditor McManus26 took the lead in compiling these mysterious elements, many of which intriguingly reference the number seven. One notable find includes a new game mode laden with an encrypted message that, when deciphered, reads “from candy to copper”—a nod to traditional gifts for sixth and seventh anniversaries.
Furthermore, the Titanfall 2 modding server Northstar has unearthed code hinting at “anniversary prep”, adding fuel to the speculative fire as 28th October draws near. Some of the gathered clues lean on the enigmatic side, drawing references from the movie 300 and a specific round of an in-game mode.
While the community remains cautiously optimistic, the consensus veers away from the possibility of a new Titanfall game announcement. Earlier revelations by Titanfall designer Mohammad Alavi about Titanfall 3’s near year-long development before its cancellation in favor of Apex Legends, have kept the hope for a new Titanfall installment simmering among fans. Respawn’s CEO, Vince Zampella, has also previously voiced his desire for a new Titanfall game, albeit “at the right moment in time”.
The plot thickens with the upcoming debut of a new hero, Conduit, in Apex Legends on 31st October, just days after Titanfall 2’s anniversary. The timing of these events has led to heightened speculation about a potential Titanfall-related announcement.
As the days inch closer to the anniversary, the Titanfall 2 community remains on the edge of their seats, eagerly awaiting any news that may spring from Respawn Entertainment. The blend of cryptic teasers and upcoming milestones in the Titanfall and Apex Legends universe keeps the anticipation high, promising a riveting end to the month for fans.
