Following a leak last week, Titanfall has been officially confirmed as the debut title from Respawn Entertainment.
Set for release in Spring 2014 on Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC, the EA-published online FPS was shown during Microsoft's E3 press conference.
According to publisher EA's official announcement: "The game is entirely multiplayer, in a new experience that combines fast-paced multiplayer action with the heroic set piece moments traditionally found in campaign mode.
"Set in a distant frontier torn apart by war, players will have the freedom to switch between fighting as elite assault Pilots or agile, heavily armored, 24-foot tall Titans.
"The universe of Titanfall juxtaposes small vs. giant, natural vs. industrial and man vs. machine. The game drops players into a conflict between the Interstellar Manufacturing Corporation (IMC) and the Militia as elite Pilots. With the ability to shift back and forth between pilot and Titan, players will have the freedom to change tactics on the fly, attacking or escaping depending on the situation."
Call of Duty co-creator and Respawn co-founder Vince Zampella said: "It's an exciting time in the industry and it feels like the perfect time to be unveiling Titanfall. Our passion at Respawn is games and we are focused on bringing something exciting to kick off the next generation of software."
Titanfall game director Steve Fukuda added: "In addition to infusing the multiplayer experience with cinematic flavor, we've been rethinking fundamental combat and movement in the genre. Titanfall is unique in the way that it places equal emphasis on two drastically different and new ways to move and fight in a first-person shooter. The intersection of the two is a big part of what give Titanfall its iconic identity."
