TITANFALL 3 Officially Not In Development; Project Became APEX LEGENDS

Earlier today, Electronic Arts announced Apex Legends, a new free-to-play title that just came out for consoles and PC. The developer has also confirmed that Titanfall 3 is not in development.

It's been a busy day for Electronic Arts today, as the developer releases brand-new title in the form of Apex Legends, a free-to-play Titanfall spinoff game with battle royale elements; currently available for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

Rumours had been doing the rounds, however, claiming that Electronic Arts was working on Titanfall 3. The developer has officially confirmed that this was not the case, and the "Titanfall 3 project" they had been working on ended up becoming Apex Legends in its stead.

The news that Apex Legends was initially a Titanfall 3 project comes from a press event for Apex Legends, in which Respawn producer Drew McCoy confirmed that they simply aren't working on a sequel to the Titanfall series.

McCoy told Eurogamer that, as a developer, their desire is to be "completely open and transparent" with their player base, as he continues to say that "part of that expands how we talk about problems, and we understand this game is gonna have sceptical audience."

They really seem to understand that some people are simply not into battle royale games, but they also want players to know what Apex Legends is, and what it's not: Titanfall 3.

"There are some people who think there are too many battle royale games or it's a fad, the world thinks we're making Titanfall 3 and we're not - this is what we're making. To try and convince a sceptical audience for months with trailers and hands-on articles, we're just like 'let the game speak for itself' - it's the most powerful antidote to potential problems."

Just like McCoy said, this response is quite open and transparent — which actually feels like a breath of fresh air with all the controversy that has been surrounding Electronic Arts for quite some time now.

"We're doing a free to play game, with essentially loot boxes, after we were bought by EA, and it's not Titanfall 3. It's the perfect recipe for a marketing plan to go awry, so why have that - let's just ship the game and let players play", explained McCoy.

Apex Legends developer, Respawn, also has some interesting things to say about the possibility of crossplay down the line, although players may have already found out that it isn't available just yet; not ruling out the possibility at all.



Apex Legends delivers a squad-based battle royale experience with a uniquely Respawn flavor. Players will select from one of eight Legends - each with their own unique abilities and playstyles - and the last team standing wins.

Apex Legends is available for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Origins for PC today.
