Respawn hasn't said much about its Titanfall sequel beyond plans for multi-platform support, but some details are starting to trickle out... and they'll be good news for fans of the robot-slash-infantry shooter. In a chat with Forbes, head writer Jesse Stern notes that Titanfall 2 will have a real, honest-to-goodness single-player campaign when it arrives either late this year or early next. That's not completely shocking given that the team didn't have the resources to flesh out its solo game the first time around. Still, it's reassuring if you were frustrated by the original's barely-there offline experience, which really just amounted to AI matches with a sliver of story in between.

Also, the interview is a friendly reminder that Titanfall won't be limited to the video game world. Lionsgate quietly revealed in July that it's working with Respawn on a TV series, and the show is still in development. However, it's a daunting challenge -- as Stern says, a sci-fi series involving giant robots could be "very expensive." Assuming the project comes together, you could be waiting a while to see the IMC and Militia fight outside of a video game.
