Respawn Entertainment has had a successful run since its formation. They managed to put out a new favorable IP known as Titanfall which has had two main installments. Likewise, out of the blue, the development studio brought out a free and popular battle royale title, Apex Legends. However, with the success of so many franchises comes at a cost to its team’s availability and resources. As a result, the company has announced that they will be shifting their focus towards Apex Legends for the time being.
It’s difficult to go through these franchises with a smaller team but in order to appease everyone on both the fan base side of things along with the employees to avoid burnout and crunch, Respawn Entertainment will be focusing on Apex Legends rather than going into the third main installment to Titanfall. This doesn’t mean that the Titanfall franchise is scrapped, but it appears that it’s simply being pushed back after a few bumps came up during the development path of Apex Legends.
We’re not sure just how much of Titanfall was pushed back and just when we can expect a new title will be brought out. However, if you’re a fan of the Apex Legends battle royale game, then we expect players will be experiencing new updates and content in the near future.
With all that said, Respawn Entertainment is also working hard on their upcoming release of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. The game recently had its first trailer reveal and Respawn Entertainment has already stated that the game would be a lengthy single-player experience. As it stands right now, Apex Legends is available for free on the PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One platforms. As for Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, the game will be launching on November 15, 2019, for the same platforms.
