Respawn Won’t Make a New Titanfall Because Too Many People Play Apex Legends

Respawn has now confirmed that a new Titanfall game is not in the works

We’ve all been begging for Respawn to launch Titanfall 3 for a long time, but what we got was Apex Legends. The game isn’t bad, really, but the company literally shelved Titanfall 3 for Apex Legends and, to a lesser extent, Star Wars: Fallen Order. Fast forward to April and it seems as if Season Five of Apex Legends might include something Titanfall, but it’s still a far cry from a new game. Now, it looks like Titanfall 3 might never happen as Respawn has confirmed that it’s not even working on it.

In an interview with IGN, Respawn co-founder, Vince Zampella shed some light on the Titanfall series:

“There’s nothing currently in development. Personally [I’d] like to see some kind of resurrection there. We’ll see if I can make that happen.”

In a completely different statement made on Respawn’s official website for the company’s 10th anniversary, Zampella said,

“[Titanfall is] near and dear to everyone here at Respawn, as it’s the franchise that really helped put the studio on the map and show the world the caliber of games that we want to make.”

At the same time, Zampella once promised there was more Titanfall coming “later in 2019” and, well, it’s 2020 and the closest we have to Titan Fall is Apex Legends.

So, what’s the deal with Titanfall? Why isn’t Respawn even working on Titanfall 3? Well, you can thank all the people that play Apex Legends. It’s based in the same universe and, thanks to the popularity of the whole battle royale niche in gaming, paired with a love for Titanfall, Apex Legends has been largely successful. If the company was to launch Titanfall 3, there’s a good chance Apex Legends would slow down quite a bit. That could, ultimately, lead to lost revenue for the company as Apex Legends is, for lack of better words, a cash cow for the company.

Fortunately, the company is still working on Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond. The Medal of Honor series was a decent one. It never really managed to compete all that well with Call of Duty, but it was great in its own right. Above and Beyond will be a VR first-person shooter designed for the Oculus Rift. It should launch later this year, and will be the first Medal of Honor title to launch since Warfighter in 2012.
