Respawn Entertainment, the guys behind the recently-released and pretty awesome free-to-play battle royale game, Apex Legends is not working on Titanfall 3 as many of us thought they were.

According to Eurogamer, Titanfall 3 is not happening any time soon and the rumoured game that was in development is actually Apex Legends. A couple of industry reports claimed that Respawn was working on a free-to-play game to tide them over while Titanfall 3 was in development. However, that is not the case.
The world thinks we’re making Titanfall 3 and we’re not – this is what we’re making. To try and convince a skeptical 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. 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.”
Many reported that Respawn was rushing to get Titanfall 3 released as quickly as possible to avoid it looking dated due to it being built using Valve’s Source Engine but it seems that everything we have heard about the game was a lie. Respawn Entertainment is not working on Titanfall 3 and the studio’s focus right now is Apex Legends.
That is to say that Titanfall 3 could be in the pipeline at some point or another. The second game was a massive hit with a fantastic story campaign and great a multiplayer aspect. However, it released at a bad time competing with both Call of Duty and Battlefield. We hope this is not the end of the series.
