A new 'Titanfall' game is in development

A new 'Titanfall' game is in development

In it, Wilson confirms that this "new twist" on the Titanfall universe will indeed launch later this year, and EA will talk about it in the months ahead.

During an Electronic Arts Q3 2019 earnings call yesterday evening, CEO Andrew Wilson brought up the possibilities in reference to a question about Apex Legends. Porting a first-person battle royale title like Apex Legends to mobile devices and implementing cross-platform play is going to be easier said than done, though, so we'll see if Electronic Arts announces plans that are more concrete in the near future. Showing Respawn's pedigree as a team of creatives who clearly game regularly themselves, we've got shakeups to the battle royale formula like respawns and finishers, right next to Titanfall-aping gunplay and knee slides keeping locomotion fresh.

Respawn's Titanfall spin-off Apex Legends is already a huge success but for those wondering where all the giant robots went there is an explanation... EA does not live in a vacuum, however, and was expecting to rake in significantly more revenue for a much bigger profit-in October, the company had forecast $1.375 billion in revenue. Could it be a Titanfall MOBA game?

According to reviews, Apex Legends has clearly worked on doing better than Fortnite in some key areas including gameplay and interaction between players.

Despite springing a light leak a few days in advance, Respawn Entertainment surprised the gaming world with a brand new shooter that was not Titanfall.

Zampella dropped the news on Twitter, although he didn't reveal any information on the game. "We absolutely are looking at that in the context of Apex", Wilson said in regards to cross-platform play, noting that other games in EA's lineup, particularly Federation Internationale de Football Association, could benefit from cross-play as well.
