In a Twitch stream hosted by BrownGirlGamerCode, Game Director Chad Grenier confirmed Apex Legends can be getting “a ton” of Titanfall content material when season 9 arrives, though he later confirmed this wouldn’t embrace titans.
Senior Writer Ashley Reed already confirmed they have been “trying to integrate Titanfall” into Apex Legends as a result of the previous depicted what was occurring throughout a warfare. The latter “is what happens after the war, like what is life like in this place?” As such, “Titanfall’s very much a part of the universe”. While Grenier didn’t go into specifics of what that ton of season 9 content material was more likely to be, he did say “there’s gonna be some really cool stuff there”.
Respawn has already been integrating Titanfall content material into the sport all through earlier seasons together with many of its weapons. However, as reported by @TitanfallWeblog on Twitter, Grenier later went on to say the season 9 content material wouldn’t embrace Titans as a result of they “don’t have any plans” so as to add them to Apex Legends “at least in the current roadmap”. Recent leaks appear to counsel in any other case, although. An upcoming character referred to as Kuben Blisk has been proven deploying a titan in leaked take a look at construct gameplay footage. The auto-titan was capable of fireplace suppressive bullets, scan the encompassing space, and comply with the participant earlier than self-destructing. Grenier has stated it doesn’t imply titans gained’t ever seem in the sport “someday in another mode”, particularly if the developer ever follows by way of on the likelihood of the sport expanding beyond battle royale, however whether or not the footage is a real indication of upcoming content material stays to be seen.
In the meantime, season eight continues onwards having added a brand new Legend in the shape of explosives expert Fuse, a brand new weapon, Gold-tier magazines, and a extreme shake up of the King’s Canyon map. EA’s newest monetary outcomes acknowledged they might be looking to expand the franchise and goal for a brand new viewers by releasing the sport on new platforms, together with a delicate launch of Apex Legends Mobile. This is all half of the sport’s ten-year plan and Respawn has no intention of developing a sequel to the sport anytime quickly.
