New Titanfall Reportedly Canceled By EA

The "Titanfall"/"Apex Legends" universe has been having a rough go of it in recent years. While the game was lauded by critics for its originality and improvement upon the series' original installment, "Titanfall 2" was a complete flop when it came out in 2016. Furthermore, services ended for the first "Titanfall" in 2021 after years of hacker problems and decreasing player numbers. Just this week, it was announced that "Apex Legends Mobile" is closing down in just a few short months. These setbacks have made fans wonder if a "Titanfall 3" will ever come to fruition — and the news of another "Titanfall" project being canceled isn't likely to inspire much confidence.

For quite some time, Respawn Entertainment has teased some kind of "Titanfall" project in the works. However, in the aftermath of EA experiencing some recent financial losses, that game has seemingly been cancelled with Respawn being downsized as a result.

Titanfall Legends gets the chop from EA after poor revenue reports

According to a new report from Bloomberg's Jason Schreier, Respawn Entertainment was indeed in the process of developing a game codenamed "Titanfall Legends." The game was meant to take place in the universe shared by the aforementioned "Titanfall" series and "Apex Legends," the latter being EA and Respawn's highly successful free-to-play battle royale title. Schreier now reports that the game was internally cancelled before an announcement could be made. The game was reportedly being worked on by a team of about 50 developers at Respawn.

While it's unknown why "Titanfall Legends" was cancelled by EA, the news comes on the heels of the publisher announcing a rather disappointing fiscal report. Though Respawn will seemingly survive the whole ordeal — especially considering it has "Star Wars Jedi: Survivor" on the horizon and "Apex Legends" to maintain — EA will reportedly be enacting layoffs at the studio. According to Schreier's sources, EA will try to reposition the 50 or so employees working on "Titanfall Legends" to other teams under the publisher's umbrella, while "anyone who can't be placed will be given severance packages and laid off."

EA has not yet weighed in concerning the accuracy of this report, but "Titanfall" and "Apex Legends" fans will be sure to keep their eyes peeled for any further news surrounding the franchise.
