Fans waiting for a new Titanfall title are set to be disappointed as a reliable industry journalist has shut down rumors of a potential Titanfall and Apex Legends single-player game by labeling the potential game “canceled.”

Even to this day, Titanfall 1 and especially Titanfall 2 have a long-standing reputation as being severely underrated FPS games with both titles containing stellar, action-packed campaign components.

The two games helped pave the way for Respawn Entertainment’s next brainchild – Apex Legends – and lots of the ideas and gameplay from Apex are derived from Respawn’s earlier work.

Apex Legends has featured Titanfall Easter Eggs in the past and has added Titanfall content too. So there have been constant suggestions about Respawn finally making Titanfall 3 and crossing over the two franchises into one another.

However, new reports suggest that the project has been canceled and is unlikely to see the light of day.

Jason Schreier of Bloomberg UK has become a reliable and trusted source of information when it comes to game leaks and behind-the-scenes info, and the journalist provided an update on the whereabouts of a rumored Titanfall 3 project.

“The canceled project, code-named TFL or Titanfall Legends, was a single-player game set in the universe shared by the Apex Legends and Titanfall games. It was directed by veteran designer Mohammad Alavi until he left the company in early 2022. Although the game hadn’t been advertised, EA had hinted at it several times,” Schreier said.

This statement backs up claims from Jeff Grubb, another industry insider, who had previously claimed that: “Respawn is working on a AAA single-player first-person shooter with a focus on style/mobility.”

He said the title was “not a Titanfall sequel” and was due to arrive sometime in either 2024 or 2025.

All signs point to the fact that a new Titanfall and Apex Legends game was in production at some point, but for whatever reason, EA decided to cease production on the title.

This isn’t the first time that EA has suddenly canceled production on a game, as the company famously canned an open-world Star Wars title a few years ago. Not only that, but they very recently announced that they were shutting down Apex Legends Mobile and ceasing development on Battlefield Mobile in one fell swoop.
