EA Teases Titanfall 3 If Fans 'Believe' In It Enough

As Apex Legends continues chugging along and enters its stride with the "explosive" Season 8, there's still a loyal fanbase of Titanfall troops asking Respawn Entertainment, "Hey, where's Titanfall 3 at?". Now, Electronic Arts has confirmed its stance on the long-awaited threequel and teased the potential of Titanfall 3 is you "believe" enough. What is this, is this a life lesson from Rafiki in The Lion King? Either way, it's the closest we've got on any confirmation of Titanfall 3 for a long time.

While Respawn is now known for Apex Legends by some, it's important to remember the battle royale brawler was originally conceived as a Titanfall spin-off. You might be able to spot Titanfall's signature style running through the colourful Legends of the game, however, other features like wall-running and the Titans themselves were cut late into Apex's development. Even though it seems the dev team has its plate full keeping Apex running, EA has assured us the idea of Titanfall 3 hasn't quite "fallen" yet.

 

What's the latest with Titanfall 3?

In a recent interview with IGN, EA's Chief Studios Officer Laura Miele explained the progress of Titanfall 3 is currently in Repsawn's court. Discussing Titanfall's place alongside Apex, Miele added, "Apex takes place in the Titanfall world and the Respawn team is incredibly proud of that legacy and brand. That team will determine what the future holds for Apex and Titanfall. I don’t believe in directing or telling games teams what to create, it has to come from the player community, and the inspiration and motivation of developers".

Expanding on how the fans themselves play a role in the potential of Titanfall 3, Miele added, "There is a lot of creative autonomy within Electronic Arts but there are certain values and principles we have as a company that we just couldn’t allow to be compromised".

Citing the long-awaited release of Skate 4, she said the outpouring of player support for another game ultimately led to it being given the green light. "With Skate for example", said Miele. "We knew that every time we posted on Instagram that the first comment no matter what we posted would be #skate4," she says. "But we only want to revisit a series if we’re confident we can build an experience that moves the franchise forward in a contemporary way". 

 

When could we see Titanfall 3?

The problem is, Miele doesn't give any timeframe on when we could be jumping into battle with Titanfall 3. Digging a little deeper, it also seems that EA is effectively shirking the responsibility of a lengthy wait to Respawn. Even if Apex is the developer's golden goose for now, that doesn't mean we've forgotten about Titanfall 3. Aside from the release of Titanfall: Ascension as a top-down strategy game in 2017, the last "real" Titanfall release was Titanfall 2 in 2016. Even though there are those who'd class Apex as a Titanfall game, it's more of a distant cousin that's only tied by lore.

Back when EA first acquired Respawn, there were reports it would quickly power ahead with Titanfall 3, but some five years after Titanfall 2 released, and we're still no closer to rounding off a trilogy. As Apex continues to be the talk of the town - and making a small fortune - it makes sense that efforts would be focussed here. Still, that's not exactly the news that Titanfall 3 fans are hoping for.  

The silver lining is that at least EA has given Respawn the go-ahead for another entry in the Titanfall franchise. For now, we're left waiting for those towering Titans to make their mark with Titanfall 3. Well, at least all is not lost.
