After being leaked by multiple sources and finally being revealed yesterday, Apex Legends has gone live as of today for Xbox One, PS4, and PC. However, those hoping this would be the first step into developing Titanfall 3 will be sadly disappointed. Respawn Entertainment has confirmed that Titanfall 3 is not in development.

Lead Producer Drew McCoy’s told Eurogamer this fact and also reveal why they didn’t officially reveal the game until today:

“There are some people who think there are too many battle royale games or it’s a fad, the world thinks we’re making Titanfall 3 and we’re not – this is what we’re making…We’re doing a free to play game, with essentially loot boxes, after we were bought by EA, and it’s not Titanfall 3. 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.”

However, this doesn’t mean this is the end of Titanfall, speaking with VG247 Design Director Mackey McCandlish explained that “The Titanfall universe is continuing. It takes place in the Titanfall universe,” he said. “That doesn’t mean there never could be another team that makes Titanfall.”

Apex Legends and Titanfall 2 is now available for PS4, PC, and Xbox One.
