Respawn is not working on Titanfall 3

Apex Legends has hit an immediate high in terms of sheer numbers, with the battle royale newcomer amassing a million players across PC, Xbox One and PS4 inside the first eight hours of its launch.

We can deduce, however, that seeing as Respawn are already talking about cross-platform play and the game has only been out for such a small amount of time, that it won't be too far away. Each of the eight characters (or Legends) has their own abilities, including tracking enemies, deploying decoys and using toxic gas. "No titans. Just as Titanfall and Titanfall 2, Apex Legends will run on a modified version of Valve's Source engine". Going free-to-play wasn't enough, though, and EA and Sony made the game even more accessible by removing the PS Plus barrier for Sony's 90 million strong install base. EA CEO Andrew Wilson promised more information on the game would come in the "months ahead". McCoy went on to talk about why they went with a surprise and sudden launch instead of hyping up the game beforehand. Once your squads are set, 60 people drop down to a large map to look for gear and begin battling it out with other squads.
