Actually, they had already expected the announcement of ‘Titanfall 3’, which was now deferred in favor of ‘Apex Legends’. Developer Respawn will now focus on new content for the Battle Royale shooter.
In an update to Apex Legends, Respawn writes :
“Regarding other games being developed at Respawn, it is important to understand that there are completely separate development teams working on Apex Legends and Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. To fully support Apex Legends, we are also setting plans for future Titanfall games. No resources of the Apex Legends team will be relocated to other development titles here in the studio, nor will we pull resources from the team working on Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. “
New details on Apex Legends regarding Season 2 are promised by Respawn at the EA Play event in June, including more meaningful content, the introduction of new legends, as well as new weapons.
