Titanfall Will Not Support Split-Screen
Continuing the trend of murdering couch co-op, Respawn Entertainment has confirmed that Titanfall will not support split-screen play. When asked about the inclusion of the feature on Twitter, Respawn simply stated “No, it’s not a feature in Titanfall.” A real shame.

I could see this turning off a lot of consumers to the full priced, multiplayer only experience. Though couch co-op is a rarity in a lot of games as of late, it would have been an excellent feature for the many who were looking to shoot online strangers in the face with their loved ones. I guess we all should have seen this coming, what with EA’s apparent distaste for split-screen, or anything offline, for that matter. Hopefully the overall package will be good enough to make up for this glaring disappointment.
Titanfall will launch on March 11, 2014 for Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC.
