Asia-focused Titanfall Online canceled

Nexon, EA, Respawn collaboration abandoned after over three years of development

After over three years of development, Nexon has revealed that its Asia-focused project with Respawn and EA, Titanfall Online, has been canceled.

According to Game Focus and translated via Kotaku, the project was not receiving positive feedback from player testing, and changes in the online market prompted development resources to be allocated elsewhere.

"It is true that Nexon and EA have agreed to cancel Titanfall Online under a business decision," said a Nexon representative. "After much deliberation, it was decided that reallocating development resources to another project was better for the company."

Titanfall Online was announced in 2015 as an online, free-to-play PC redesign of the original Titanfall. The game was planned for various countries in Asia, including Korea, Japan, China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and others, with a limited-time player test running in South Korea in December of 2016. At the time, the project was intended to follow the success of similar collaborations between EA and Nexon, such as FIFA Online 3.
