Yesterday, Respawn Entertainment — now owned by EA — launched a battle royale game called Apex Legends. There were rumors that it would be a free-to-play version of Titanfall, but it's more along the lines of Overwatch. While the title takes place in the Titanfall universe, it doesn't feature mechs. It's a standard run-and-gun shooter, where each character has various special abilities.
Many gamers expected Respawn to unveil Titanfall 3 or a similar project, but it turns out that wasn't the case at all. However, the team has promised extensive post-launch support for years to come. Some features like cross-play are also in the works. An interview between Eurogamer and Respawn revealed the following.
It's great to see that cross-play is in the works. Maybe one day they'll find a way to add cross-progression too. We'll keep you posted as soon as we know when cross-play will be rolling out on Xbox One and other platforms. Now that Sony allows cross-play, we should expect more games to use it, too.
