A few of the lads from Respawn took time out at TGS to have a chat with us about their upcoming Titanfall sequel.

When we asked what inspired the team working on the single-player campaign in Titanfall 2, art director Joel Emslie had this to say:

“The story itself has a little bit of Portal, a little bit of Half-Life, even Blaster Master on the old Nintendo… there’s a tiny bit of a Metroid vibe; [there were] all these inspirations we were thinking about when we were doing it. It’s all in the interaction with this giant robot, and earning his trust – there’s even a little bit of James Cameron in there – there’s this metal character that you’re walking around with. It’s a learning curve.”

Look out for the rest of our interview with the Respawn team in the November issue of STACK.
