Nope, Respawn is not making Titanfall 3

It is a bittersweet day for followers of Titanfall and Respawn Leisure.

Respawn has made a brand new first-person shooter housed throughout the Titanfall universe, and it is out immediately on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. The sport’s even free! However Apex Legends is a squad-based battle royale — a format that is left a whole lot of us feeling fatigued — and the studio says it is not engaged on Titanfall 3.

That final bit comes as a shock to everybody who caught wind of Apex Legends over the weekend and simply figured Respawn additionally had an eventual sequel up its sleeve alongside Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.

Talking to Eurogamer, lead producer Drew McCoy acknowledged that Apex Legends will appeal to skepticism. “There are some individuals who suppose there are too many battle royale video games or it is a fad, the world thinks we’re making Titanfall 3 and we’re not — that is what we’re making,” he mentioned.

In 2017, Kotaku reported {that a} sequel was in manufacturing, however plans have clearly modified.

“To attempt to persuade a skeptical viewers for months with trailers and hands-on articles, we’re similar to ‘let [Apex Legends] communicate for itself,'” defined McCoy. “We’re doing a free-to-play recreation, with primarily loot containers, after we have been purchased by EA, and it is not Titanfall 3. It is the right recipe for a advertising plan to go awry, so why have that – let’s simply ship the sport and let gamers play.”

It is a disgrace concerning the lack of a Titanfall 3 given the near-universal fondness over Titanfall 2‘s inventive marketing campaign, but when this case is how it may be, I can a minimum of respect Respawn’s candidness.
