Titanfall 3, the third installment in the first-person shooter (FPS) video game franchise, was in development for ten months at Respawn Entertainment before the team switched focus to Apex Legends, a former developer revealed in an interview.

We had the latest tech, multiple missions underway, and a playable prototype that was on par with, if not better than, anything we’d ever done. But to be honest, it was only incrementally better, not revolutionary. And that’s the crux of the issue, isn’t it?

We were feeling pretty good about it, but it wasn’t the same electric excitement we felt with Titanfall 2. Back then, we knew we were creating something truly groundbreaking.

The Titanfall game series is known for its fast-paced, fluid gameplay, which combines the agility and mobility of piloting a mech with the precision and lethality of first-person shooting. The games are also known for their unique setting, which is a war-torn frontier on the fringes of space exploration.

Titanfall 3 release date

The release date of Titanfall 3 has not been confirmed, but Respawn Entertainment has announced that the game is in development. This comes after the release of Apex Legends, which has been a huge success for the studio. It is therefore possible that Titanfall 3 will be the next game released by Respawn.

How Respawn Worked On Titanfall 3 For 10 Months

Titanfall 3 release date

Mohammad Alavi, narrative lead designer on Titanfall and lead designer on Titanfall 3, revealed that development on Titanfall 3 began shortly after the release of Titanfall 2 in 2016. The team was confident they could make a great game that improved on Titanfall 2’s multiplayer, which Alavi described as “Titanfall 2 plus a little bit better.”

However, things changed when Respawn CEO Vince Zampella and some of the developers started playing PUBG, one of the first popular battle royale games. They realized that there was a huge potential for a new kind of multiplayer experience that was different from the traditional modes of Titanfall. Alavi said that they decided to “make this thing” and “literally canceled Titanfall 3” to focus on Apex Legends.

Why Respawn Cancelled Titanfall 3 And Made Apex Legends

Alavi explained that the decision to cancel Titanfall 3 and make Apex Legends was not easy, but it was the right call. He said that Titanfall 3 was not revolutionary enough to stand out in the crowded market of first-person shooters. He said that Titanfall 3 was “Titanfall 2 plus a little bit better”, but that was not enough to compete with games like Call of Duty, which had a bigger budget and a larger fan base.

He also said that Titanfall 3 was using an outdated engine that could not support the features and scale that they wanted for the game. He said that they needed to switch to a new engine and rebuild the game from scratch, which would take a lot of time and resources. He said that they did not have enough confidence that Titanfall 3 would be as good as or better than Titanfall 2, which he considered as their “crowning achievement”.

On the other hand, Apex Legends was a fresh and innovative idea that could appeal to a wider audience and offer a unique gameplay experience. Alavi said that they were able to use the existing assets and mechanics from Titanfall 2 and adapt them to the battle royale genre. He said that they were able to create a prototype of Apex Legends in just two months, and it was “clearly amazing”. He said that they were able to make something revolutionary with Apex Legends, something that they could not do with Titanfall 3.

How Respawn Kept Apex Legends A Secret From EA And The Public

One of the most surprising things about Apex Legends was how Respawn managed to keep it a secret from EA, their publisher, and the public until its launch in February 2019. Alavi revealed that EA did not even know about Apex Legends until six months before its release. He said that they made a big presentation to EA and showed them the game for the first time. He said that EA was shocked but supportive of their decision.

Alavi also said that they did not want to announce or hype up Apex Legends before its launch because they knew that it would face a lot of backlash from the fans of Titanfall who were expecting a third game. He said that they wanted to avoid the negative reactions and let the game speak for itself. He said that they wanted to surprise and delight the players with Apex Legends, rather than disappoint them with Titanfall 3.

How Respawn Feels About Titanfall 3 And The Future Of The Franchise

Despite cancelling Titanfall 3 and making Apex Legends, Alavi said that Respawn still loves Titanfall and its fans. He said that they are proud of what they achieved with Titanfall and Titanfall 2, and they are grateful for the support and feedback from the community. He also said that they are still interested in making more Titanfall games in the future, but they have no concrete plans at the moment.

He said that Respawn is currently focused on supporting and expanding Apex Legends, which has become one of the most popular and successful games in the world. He said that Apex Legends is not just a spin-off of Titanfall, but a continuation of the story and lore of the franchise. He said that Apex Legends is also a way to introduce new players to the Titanfall universe and its characters.

He said that Respawn hopes that Apex Legends will keep the Titanfall franchise alive and relevant, and that it will pave the way for more Titanfall games in the future. He said that Respawn is always looking for new opportunities and challenges, and that they are not afraid to try new things and take risks. He said that Respawn is still passionate about making games, and that they will always try to make the best games possible.
