Ubisoft isn’t the only gaming giant that’s canceling some of its potentially acclaimed projects. According to sources with Bloomberg, Electronic Arts has pulled the plug on Titanfall Legends, a single-player game set in the universe shared by the Titanfall games and Apex Legends, Respawn Entertainment’s free-to-play battle royale shooter. Fans of Titanfall who have been demanding a new installment of the mecha-inspired franchise continue to blame EA for Titanfall 2’s disappointing sales, having released the acclaimed but poorly timed game right next to Battlefield 1 (October 21) and Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare (November 4) on October 28, 2016.

From a Bloomberg report (alternate link):

The game, which hadn’t been publicly announced, was in production at EA developer Respawn Entertainment. On Tuesday, EA, one of the world’s biggest video game publishers, gave a disappointing outlook for revenue in the current quarter. The company said it was canceling the Apex Legends mobile game as well as a mobile version of Battlefield and shuttered Industrial Toys, the studio behind it. EA also delayed the highly anticipated Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, another title in development at Respawn.

The canceled project, code-named TFL or Titanfall Legends, was a single-player game set in the universe shared by the Apex Legends and Titanfall games. It was directed by veteran designer Mohammad Alavi until he left the company in early 2022. Although the game hadn’t been advertised, EA had hinted at it several times.
