Respawn is teasing more Titanfall games after reports of abandonment

According to a vague tweet, Titanfall is still "at the very core" of the studio's DNA.

Contrary to popular belief, Respawn Entertainment has not given up on Titanfall just yet. Although the EA-owned studio has focused much of its attention on Apex Legends since February 2019 while occasionally working on other games like 2019's Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and 2020's award-winning title, Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond, Respawn was quick to remind its fans that it has not forgotten the series that started everything for them.

Titanfall 3 isn't happening soon, but Respawn hasn't forgotten about it.

When is the next Titanfall game coming?

Respawn might decide to revisit Titanfall once the popularity of battle royale games starts to wane out.

Technically, there's already a new Titanfall game. Apex Legends can be considered a successor to the Titanfall franchise considering that it takes place in the same universe and uses several of its core elements. Both game's in-game lore is also connected, which means that you can consider Apex Legends the next Titanfall title. But, as for an actual sequel, only Respawn knows when it's coming.

Throughout 2021, Respawn has been on the receiving end of much criticism for abandoning Titanfall. Back in July, hackers went as far as to hack Apex Legends to raise awareness for the issues currently plaguing Titanfall's servers. Respawn's response was to fix the problems caused by the hackers in Apex Legends while still ignoring Titanfall. Then, in September, malicious hackers and cheaters just took over Titanfall 2.

Having said that, Respawn's recent (but vague) statement does acknowledge the importance of Titanfall for the studio.

At the moment, Respawn is working on the DDOS attacks plaguing the Titanfall servers, as per Respawn community coordinator Jason Garza. The update came before Respawn's aforementioned Tweet, and now fans are hopeful that this could mean something. Some are going as far as to claim that this is confirmation that Respawn is working on Titanfall 3. Of course, without actual confirmation from Respawn, it's better to assume that Titanfall 3 isn't coming anytime soon if ever at all.

At the moment, Respawn is busy working on multiple projects. In addition to Apex Legends, EA confirmed in a previous earnings call that development on Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order 2 had already begun.
