Titanfall 3 Pushed Back as Respawn Focuses on Apex Legends Support

Recommended Videos

Respawn hit it big with Apex Legends, their take on the Battle Royale genre. 50 million players jumped onto the free-to-play title, eclipsing any previous success they found with Titanfall and other titles. So understandably, there hadn’t been much word on the future of the Titanfall series, of which Apex Legends is a small part. In a new statement though, Executive Producer Drew McCoy explained that plans for any future Titanfall games, including Titanfall 3 it would seem, have been pushed out in favor of more support for Apex Legends.

In order to fully support Apex Legends, we are pushing out plans for future Titanfall games

You can read more about the main parts of the statement right here, but for now let’s focus on the future of Titanfall, which is mentioned near the end. “Lastly, regarding other games in development at Respawn, it is important to understand that there are entirely separate development teams working on Apex Legends and Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order,” explains McCoy.

Here’s where things take a turn for the worse, if you were a fan of Titanfall and its sequel. “Additionally, in order to fully support Apex Legends, we are pushing out plans for future Titanfall games. No resources from the Apex Legends team are being shifted to other titles in development here at the studio, nor are we pulling resources from the team working on Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.”

So it’s clear that Respawn has enough resources to continue supporting Apex Legends and develop their very good looking Star Wars game, but the cost of that is being paid by their original FPS franchise. While Apex Legends is an extension of the Titanfall universe, it lacks a lot of the things players love about the series, including the titular Titans themselves and the movement mechanics that made it unique. It seems that fans will have to wait a long while for Titanfall 3, if it ever arrives at all.
