It appears Respawn's current Titanfall project and plans for all future Titanfall games have been delayed. Previously scheduled for later this year, Apex Legends executive producer Drew McCoy announced plans for all future
"[Regarding] other games in development at Respawn, it's important to understand that there are completely separate development teams working on Apex Legends and Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, "McCoy wrote in a blog post. "Additionally, in order to fully support Apex Legends, we're 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. "
Not much details about this upcoming Titanfall project have been revealed, but Respawn CEO Vince Zampella has clarified that it is not Titanfall 3." We love being able to experiment in this crazy universe! " he said. On Twitter, Zampella also shot down the theory that the Titanfall project would be a VR game. In an earnings call, EA described the project as a "premium" title but suggested that the game would not be a typical Titanfall sequel.
In this regard, the Titanfall project sounds like it could be similar to Apex Legends, Respawn's battle royale game set within the Titanfall universe years after the events of Titanfall 2. This upcoming game could just be set in the same setting as the original first person shooters but does not quite follow the same mix of fast-paced, wall-running gameplay and slower, mech-based combat.
Respawn is set to announce the details of Apex Legends Season 2 during EA Play in June. "For Season 2 you can expect a Battle Pass with more meaningful content, the introduction of a new Legend, the debut of a new weapon … and you did not expect the Kings Canyon to remain the same for ever, did you?" McCoy wrote. Following the start of Season 2, Respawn is scheduled to release Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order on November 1
