APEX LEGENDS Executive Producer Reveals That Respawn Have Given Up On Trying To Implement Titans

Drew McCoy, an executive producer of Apex Legends, recently did an interview in which he stated that Respawn Entertainment is no longer attempting to bring Titans to the battle royale game.

Once upon a time, what would become Apex Legends was going to be a sequel to Titanfall 2. The latter was Respawn's traditional multiplayer/campaign game in which the player could wallrun and take control of a hulking mech known as a Titan. It therefore comes as no surprise then that Respawn Entertainment were apparently considering adding Titans to Apex Legends.

They aren't anymore, however. Drew McCoy, the battle royale game's executive producer, recently did an interview with Game Informer in which he revealed that Respawn have officially given up on trying to implement Titans into Apex Legends.

This is because taking control of the Titan is meant to imbue the player with a sense of power. However, that feeling vanishes once the Titan has been fine-tuned to a battle royale setting. According to McCoy, they've simply figured out that a Titan isn't the best fit for a battle royale.

"We prototyped it for like nine months during development, and we couldn't get it to work well. Titans were created back in the day as a power item. As a sense of I am now a badass, don't mess with me. That fantasy fulfillment is destroyed immediately in battle royale once you've balanced them to a point where they don't ruin battle royale."

"We could never pull enough levers – how you get it, how strong it is, how fast it is, how big it is, what kind of weapons it has, when do you have it – all that kind of stuff. So I think for now, titans are just not a thing. We're no longer considering it."
