Nope, Respawn isn't making Titanfall 3

At any rate, the success of EA's launch could simply go to show the vast popularity of battle royale games these days, and perhaps also reflects positively on the Titanfall universe - in which Apex Legends is set - to some extent. Outside of its visuals and mechanics, EA will monetize the game in two key ways: optional cosmetic-only microtransactions and a battle pass, similar to Fortnite.

It was rumoured that Titanfall 3 was in development according to a source at Kotaku, but it appears that the studio has shifted the title to become a free-to-play battle royale. Additionally, based on information he received, Slasher tweeted up to three players could team up and titans would not be available for use. It's hard to know how balanced all of these gameplay elements are so early after launch, but I wasn't able to notice any one Legend or weapon that was oppressive during my playtime. After the game was hinted at last week, it was just a matter of time before we finally got our hands on the next game in the Titanfall universe.

Another innovative aspect of Apex Legends in the 'ping system" - which allows you "ping' location, objects, and enemies to draw your teammate's attention to it. Respawn has also stated that first season for Apex Legends will begin in March. Additionally, you can buy premium currency to purchase exclusive items and loot boxes, called Apex Packs.

Respawn has said the number of total players may increase over time.

When it comes to characters (or Legends as they're called in the game), players have to unlock these gradually with Legend Tokens that are only earned by playing the game.

Characters in Apex Legends also have special traits. "It's their abilities that set them apart, so you'll want to pick the Legend that matches your preferred playstyle and complements your squad".

The phenomenal success of Fortnite and PUBG Mobile have ensured that every big game publisher will try its hand at the battle royale genre.
