It doesn’t look like Titanfall fans are getting a third installment of the popular mecha-fueled first-person shooter anytime soon, but developer Respawn Entertainment will be keeping the flames of the franchise alive via its free-to-play battle royale hit, Apex Legends. This is according to senior writer Ashley Reed, who confirmed during a recent panel that Respawn would be integrating Titanfall into future updates and that it was very much a part of the universe. Game director Chad Grenier also noted that Apex Legends would host some “really cool stuff” related to Titanfall.
“Next season – Season 9 – you’re actually going to see a ton of Titanfall coming back into the game, in one way or another,” Grenier hinted. “I’ve told some people before, if you’re a Titanfall fan, hang on for Season 9 because there’s gonna be some really cool stuff there.” As for the specifics? Sadly, neither Grenier nor Reed could be drawn on further details, so all we can do for now is watch this space.
