Titanfall 2 is a first-person shooter video game developed by Respawn Entertainment and published by Electronic Arts, and is the sequel to 2014’s Titanfall. It was released in October 2016 for Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Its single-player campaign focuses on a Militia infantry soldier named Jack Cooper who aspires to be the pilot of a Titan – large mecha-style exoskeletons used for war. Following the death of his mentor, Cooper inherits BT-7274, a Vanguard-class Titan, and the two join forces against the Interstellar Manufacturing Corporation and their hired mercenaries.
Upon release, Titanfall 2 was met with highly positive reviews, with critics praising the single-player campaign for its design and execution, and the various multiplayer modes for building upon the foundation of the original game, with several reviewers citing Bounty Hunt as the highlight. Criticism was leveled against the single-player’s short length and the writing. Despite the positive reception, Titanfall 2 underperformed commercially.
