It’s not Titanfall 3. With that bandage ripped off, it does seem that Respawn, the developer behind Titanfall, Apex Legends, and Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is at work on a new triple-A, single-player FPS game. The studio publicly announced development on a new IP last year, and a few details on what direction they’re taking have started to leak out.
“It is (surprise) a triple-A first-person shooter that is still in pretty early development,” reporter Jeff Grubb says in his latest GrubbSnax podcast (paywalled). “Looking for 2024 at the earliest, probably 2025.” The project’s lead departed Respawn earlier this month, but the team is “continuing to prototype.”
Grubb says this is Respawn’s “strategy. This is how they make games. They prototype them for a few years. A solid block of years they spend figuring out what the game is going to look like. Right now, they have a sort of guidance of ‘triple-A, first-person shooter,’ and there’s a couple of key words: mobility and style.”
