There are no words in this title that I don't like.

An accidental leaking of the next GameInformer magazine cover has revealed that Respawn’s debut title since their bitter split from Activision is Titanfall, and it’s coming to PC in 2014.
The game will be powered by the Source engine, with several ground-up rewrites to meet the team’s needs. In it, players take the role of Pilots who can either directly jump into mechs (or “titans”) to play as them, or control them remotely through autonomous programs while they roam the battlefield themselves on foot.
While on foot, players can disable mechs by jumping onto them and shooting their brain. The trade-off seems to be that being on foot grants you greater agility than piloting a mech, but obviously at the expense of armour/durability.
Little is known about the combat but a brief summary of the article can be found here at NeoGAF.
We’ll learn more at the EA Press Conference, which will happen at 6:00 AM AEST this coming Tuesday. Learn more about our E3 plans here.
