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. It's a standard run-and-gun shooter, where each character has various special abilities.

Many gamers were disappointed by the fact that Titanfall 3 wasn't announced during the livestream. Afterwards, reports emerged that Titanfall 3 had been shelved in favor of Apex Legends. It was unclear if we would see another Titanfall experience soon, but that concern was put to rest earlier today, Respawn head Vince Zampella said that players should expect something new regarding Titanfall later this year. Zampella wrote, "Tons of things planned for Apex Legends in the future. We are also committed to listening to player feedback. We are also working on more Titanfall for later in the year... We love being able to experiment in this crazy universe!"

It's unclear what sort of project we'll see later this year, but it probably won't be Titanfall 3. Let's just hope it's not a mobile game. A strategy experience would be an exciting addition to the franchise though. Only time will tell what Respawn has in the works.

What would you like to see in the next Titanfall game? Let us know. Respawn clarified that EA didn't influence its decision to make Apex Legends. A producer even went on to say that "the world thinks we're making Titanfall 3 and we're not... 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... 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."
