Following on the release of free-to-play battle royale game Apex Legends, the producers behind Titanfall seems to be preparing to launch a new title that will play like Titanfall. Apex Legends had surprised fans as it was not expected to take place in the same universe as Titanfall.
However, it is still not clear whether this new game will be Titanfall 3. In fact, according to Drew McCoy, the lead producer of Apex Legends, Titanfall 3 is still not in development. Fans of the franchise need not fret though, as a new title that will be directly linked to the Titanfall series is definitely being developed by the makers of Titanfall 2.
According to Vince Zampella, CEO of Respawn, the new Titanfall game is being planned to release ‘later in the year’. On his twitter account, Zampella wrote: ‘Tons of things planned for @PlayApex in the future. We are also committed to listening to player feedback.’
‘We are also working on more Titanfall for later in the year (yes, I said the T word). We love being able to experiment in this crazy universe!’
Finally, Andrew Wilson made further comments on the upcoming new game: ‘While I don’t have more to share with the particulars of what we have coming from Titanfall, Respawn are a tremendously creative team.
‘They always anticipated that Apex Legends would be a spectacular game in the battle royale genre, and that they’d use that as a ramp point to deliver a truly creative take on what Titanfall is in a premium context later on in the year.’ Fans of the franchise can then expect a new Titanfall game that is not free-to-play like Apex Legends, while they are waiting for a direct sequel to the last Titanfall game.
