Titanfall 3 isn’t in development, consistent with Respawn’s community coordinator Jason Garza. It’s unclear what the studio is functioning on now.
A Respawn dev has confirmed that Titanfall 3 isn’t happening, despite fans’ various rumors and needs. Both Titanfall titles were critically acclaimed, but unfortunately, EA and developer Respawn never officially pursued Titanfall 3. Respawn has since shifted focus to VR titles, Apex Legends, and Star Wars games, meaning Titanfall is actually on the backburner as a correct series.
Last year, a rumor began circulating that Titanfall 3 was developing at Respawn, but nothing has come of it. Multiple sources corroborated this rumor on Twitter, but all of them deleted their tweets. There is no telling why they deleted their tweets, as maybe they were told by Respawn, EA, or an indoor source to get rid of the posts, or they got conflicting information that caused doubt in their reporting. Either way, people got overvalued once more after the recent GeForce Now leak, which saw an inventory of unannounced games surface online. Among the various titles was Titanfall 3, though a developer says fans should temper expectations.
During a live stream (via Dexerto), Respawn community coordinator Jason Garza told a lover that there are currently no plans for Titanfall 3. this is not the primary time Respawn has said that Titanfall 3 isn’t in development. Still, a while has passed since the last denial. There is no word on what Respawn is up to immediately, but it looks like the developer has its hands full, and any chance at a correct sequel will probably need to wait a short time.
“Don’t get your hopes up, man. I’ve said this before. We don’t have anything in [the] works. There’s nothing. There’s nothing there. We’ve got too many other games within the works immediately .”
Although this denial is not the first time Respawn has shattered Titanfall 3 hopes, it’s still disappointing. Titanfall 2 is among the foremost acclaimed first-person shooters of the last generation, both for its fun multiplayer and its incredibly inventive campaign that offered a much-needed shake-up to the FPS genre. The success of Apex Legends has probably prevented Titanfall 3 from happening, but at the very least, Respawn seems committed to creating more single-player games.
With Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order being an enormous hit, it seems likely the series will continue in how. EA probably could’ve turned Respawn into a studio exclusively focused on Apex Legends, but the publisher seems to value the corporate as a real AAA game developer. It likely won’t be too long until Respawn reveals its next game since Fallen Order was released in 2019, but there is no indication on what’s next for the team, save that it probably won’t be Titanfall 3.
