Considering it never really got a public release, some would probably say it never really was in the first place.

Grand Theft Auto V has made “at least” $500 million from microtransactions

This morning Respawn Entertainment and EA Games revealed their first teaser trailer for Titanfall 2. It's been a couple of seasons out, now, since the first Titanfall was released, and the companies have been bashing about since then, creating another mech warrior game that - this time - appears to be ready to give you a bit more freedom in how you'll be tearing your opponents apart.
