Respawn cancelled Titanfall 3 in favor of Apex Legends

Titanfall is apparently getting the battle royale treatment

Earlier today, Respawn Entertainment officially announced its newest game-Apex Legends. While the game does look pretty cool, many were still holding out hope for a full-blown Titanfall 3, with Kotaku even speculating that Apex Legends would serve as a stop-gap between Titanfall 2 and the next mainline game.

Apex Legends allows players to choose between eight "Legend" characters, each with unique abilities and play styles.

There are no pilotable mechs in the game.

Surprise! Apex Legends, the next evolution of battle royale is here. It's a free to play, squad-focused battle royale with characters. Apex Legends seems to have the Titanfall name attached for now, but it still seems quite separate.

"Samsung Galaxy S10E with 5.8" Infinity-O Display Leaked
The Galaxy S10 and S10+ are touted to be featuring the in-display fingerprint scanners since they are high-end flagship models. Round the back, the Galaxy S10e rocks a dual-camera setup as opposed to the triple-camera setup on S10 and S10+.

The game will feature a seasonal content roadmap, with new Legends and weaponry coming on a quarterly basis. In other words, you're not just an anonymous grunt like in PUBG or Fortnite, but matches still take place on the same map where 60 players on teams of three fight to be the last ones standing. Or did they? Respawn CEO tweeted a video of a bucket catching rain drops from a leaky roof, but I'm now convinced it alluded to the Apex Legends leaks being real and possibly a calculated PR move. "To try and convince a sceptical 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".

Esports insider, Rod Breslau, added on Twitter that Apex Legends' microtransactions will also be similar to Overwatch, and will feature loot boxes for cosmetics and other in-game items.

"Our goal in every game you play is that you come in with a plan but you leave with a story", Drew McCoy, lead producer of Apex Legends, said in a press release. Or perhaps the work Respawn had done for Titanfall 3 wound up evolving into this spinoff game.
