The game followed an entirely new Jedi character that was trying to reorganize the Jedi after Order 66. However, the game ended with a cliff-hanger that left the possibility of a sequel wide open, and rumors about that sequel being in development have been prevalent – with Electronic Arts and Respawn Entertainment seemingly teasing the game as well. This has been exciting for fans of the first game, but Respawn’s community coordinator also said recently that the company was not currently working on Titanfall 3. While this is disappointing to those who loved Titanfall 2, it could be very good news for Jedi: Fallen Order 2.
Many fans think that it is because of Apex Legends‘ success that Respawn Entertainment seems so disinterested in releasing a new Titanfall game. This fear has only been stoked by the many hackers that have plagued lobbies in Titanfall 2 for months without any action from the developers. Recently, different hackers even took to infiltrating Apex Legends, with a message saying that they would keep trying until Titanfall 2 received some attention from the developer. Following the comments of its community coordinator, Respawn did release an official statement saying that Titanfall was in the company’s DNA, but it was far from confirmation that it was interested in future releases.
Respawn Entertainment’s Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order was a big surprise for fans of the studio and the franchise. Even now, Respawn Entertainment, originally comprised of industry veterans responsible for early Call of Duty titles, is primarily known for its contributions to the first-person shooter genre. Regardless, Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order was released by the studio in 2019 and was met with a very positive reception from fans and critics alike.
Titanfall is a sci-fi FPS that lets players play as both pilots and large mechs called Titans. The series quickly became popular with its first release due to its fast action, high skill ceiling, and unique multiplayer features. The sequel expanded on all of these elements while also adding a single-player campaign that was very well received due to its surprisingly strong writing and fantastic level design. Afterward, Respawn Entertainment launched Apex Legends, the free-to-play battle royale that is set in the Titanfall universe – although it doesn’t feature any of the titular mechs. Apex Legends exploded in popularity upon release, and it has enjoyed a place near the top of its genre over the years following its debut.
