EA reportedly cancels new Titanfall single-player game
EA has canceled an unannounced single-player game set in the same universe as Titanfall and Apex Legends, according to Bloomberg. The news follows EA’s latest earnings report on Tuesday, where it announced it would be shutting down Apex Legends Mobile, halting development of a planned Battlefield mobile game, and delaying the release of Star Wars Jedi: Survivor by six weeks. . .
Apex Legends, a battle royale live-shooter from Respawn Entertainment, born out of a plan to create a new Titanfall, has become one of EA’s flagship titles. Titanfall fans have been hoping for a new single-player game in this series after Titanfall 2’s well-received single-player campaign, but given Bloomberg’s report, it looks like that isn’t becoming a reality anytime soon.
The canceled project was codenamed Titanfall Legends, according to Bloomberg. EA will try to find other jobs within the company for the game’s “approximately 50” team, although those who don’t get new jobs will be terminated with severance pay. EA did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Respawn will still have a lot to do. In addition to working on Apex Legends, he is developing two other Star Wars games besides Jedi: Survivor. And Respawn CEO Vince Zampella was named head of the Battlefield franchise shortly after Battlefield 2042’s disappointing launch.
EA also shut down its Industrial Toys game studio, which developed the Battlefield mobile game, according to VentureBeat.
