Respawn’s recruitment website lists a number of completely different entries for an “Apex Universe FPS Incubation” job. Looking at the Senior Environment Artist listing, for instance, it describes the venture as a “single participant journey.” And whereas that is simply an incubation — that means the venture may very well be cancelled even earlier than it’s formally introduced and titled — it’s nonetheless an thrilling tease for Apex Legends followers.
Nonetheless, this information may very well be extra thrilling for Titanfall followers. For individuals who could not bear in mind, Apex Legends takes place in the identical universe, which started with the 2014 multiplayer mech-shooter. In order that raises a key query: Is that this “incubation” a quasi-Titanfall 3 wrapped in an Apex Legends protecting? It’s doable — definitely extra doable than an precise Titanfall 3.
Apex Legends began as a derivative, however shortly grew greater than Titanfall ever was — which is why, one can assume, Respawn now calls it the “Apex Universe” and never the “Titanfall Universe.” It’s not unreasonable to suppose that this may very well be a sport with and about Titans utilizing the extra common Apex identify. Nonetheless, as thrilling as that may be for Titanfall followers, it appears much more seemingly that it’s one thing utterly new — just like the bounce from Titanfall 2 to Apex was — or a sport that carefully follows one among Apex’s many Legends. It doesn’t matter what, it’s pretty secure to imagine this sport gained’t have “Titanfall” within the title.
Respawn Leisure has lots on its plate in the meanwhile. Along with this upcoming Apex Legends FPS sport, the studio can be creating Star Wars: Jedi Survivor, one other Star Wars FPS game, a Star Wars strategy game, and continuous updates for Apex Legends.
