Respawn Entertainment has announced that it's ending Titanfall sales on digital platforms, delisting the game from storefronts today and removing it from subscription services in early 2022.
It's been a tough time for fans of Titanfall and Titanfall 2. Respawn Entertainment has largely shifted its focus to Apex Legends, but a number of fans are still enjoying the Titanfall games to this day -- especially after a free weekend earlier this year breathed some life back into the game.
Unfortunately, both games have been plagued by DDOS attacks and server-crashing exploits. Respawn Entertainment has struggled to find a long-term, permanent solution to the problem -- and now, one of the two Titanfall games is no longer available for purchase.

What's Happening with Titanfall Sales?
The delisting of the first Titanfall game was announced today on Respawn's official Twitter account, dashing the hopes of fans that this developer would eventually fix up its legacy title.
Titanfall is part of our DNA at Respawn, It's a game that showcased the ambitions of the studio when it was first released more than 7 years ago and it continues to be a beacon of innovation that we strive for in all of our games.
We've made the decision to discontinue new sales of the original Titanfall game starting today and we'll be removing the game from subscription services on March 1, 2022. We will, however, be keeping servers live for the dedicated fanbase still playing and those who own the game and are looking to drop into a match.
Rest assured, Titanfall is core to Respawn's DNA and this incredible universe will continue. Today in Titanfall 2 and Apex Legends, and in the future. This franchise is a north star for the caliber of experiences we will continue to create here at Respawn.
Thank you from the entire Respawn team
Notably, the sentiment that "Titanfall is part of our DNA at Respawn" echoes earlier rumors that some kind of sequel or remaster is in development. While sales of the first game have ended, there's still the slim chance that something new is on the way.
Existing owners of the game, however, don't have much to worry about -- Respawn Entertainment has promised to keep the game's servers online for the foreseeable future. Furthermore, Titanfall 2 remains available for purchase on digital storefronts such as Steam and as part of subscription services like EA Play. Hopefully, the end of sales for the first game means that the devs will be able to make its sequel run a little better while fans wait for news of a new game in the franchise.
