A new report has revealed the true nature of the canceled Titanfall game.
According to the Giant Bomb reporter jeff grubb via CVG, the unannounced Titanfall game codename Titanfall Legends was not a standalone title. It was going to work alongside the popular battle royale game Apex Legends. He said it was Respawn Entertainment’s attempt to get a Titanfall-feeling project into Apex Legends.
“Titanfall Legends wasn’t Titanfall 3, because in many people’s minds I think Titanfall 3 was going to be a new, standalone game with a single player campaign and multiplayer, and they could never do it again after Apex Legends. change. the calculation of all those things,” he said.
“In two weeks, Apex Legends will have a team deathmatch, and that was always part of a plan to make Apex Legends into this platform where you can get all kinds of different shooting experiences from an expanded world of Apex Legends / Titanfall.
“Titanfall Legends was always supposed to be included as part of that… Titanfall Legends would be a single player campaign within this platform, the same way Call of Duty works where you get Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone is there too. ”
Grubb explained that Respawn designed Titanfall Legends to encourage players to use special abilities like wall running and more. The developers did not want players to play it like Call of Duty.
This canceled campaign would have featured characters from Apex Legends and BT, the fellow Titan featured in the Titanfall 2 story. Blisk would be the players’ character and would explore the world. They could have updated BT as well.
Legends would appear in this campaign and later give Blisk special powers. Grubb said this would tie Apex Legends together in a “really strong way.”
“They wanted to make the game more active, where you use your abilities more often…the tagline I heard was, ‘We want Jon Wick meets Tony Hawk.’ They were also super inspired by Doom Eternal, where you’re always aggressive and always getting stuff.”
Grubb also revealed a bit of Titanfall Legends backstory. He claims that Rampart, a character from Apex Legends, discovered BT’s chassis and brought him back to life. BT is a special Titan and has interacted with a special item called The Lost Ark. BT would be the only one who could track all these items and whoever collects them will become super powerful.
No official statement from Respawn Entertainment or EA has been released to confirm or deny these claims.
