Titanfall 1 came in 2014 and Titanfall 2 came in 2016. It’s been nearly 2 years now and we have not seen Titanfall 3. In 2019, there were rumors that Titanfall 3 will fall on gaming platforms in 2019 but nothing happened. Now, it’s been a serious question if we’ll ever see Titanfall 3. If yes, when? Let’s see what the latest news and updates about Titanfall 3 are there in the basket.
Xbox 360 version of the game launched in 2014 by Bluepoint Games.
Titanfall 1 & 2: What actually happened?
Titanfall 1 came in 2014. It revolutionized the gaming world from the FPS perspective again with the add-ons of advanced wall-mechanisms. Titans were the characters that fell on the battlefield from the air in the form of airdrops, thus called Titan falls.
Titanfall 2 improvised the shortcomings of Titanfall 1 and focused more on strengthening the bond between rookie pilots and their special Titan. It focused on certain specialized Titans only. It also included environmental hacking, death factories, and time travel and antagonists ‘Apex Predators’. All these factors actually brought uniqueness to the game series.
Some believe that the introduction of Apex Predators in Titanfall 2 led to the inception of a new game series called Apex Legends.
Apex Legends release in 2019
Earlier, Apex Legends released on February 5, 2019. At that time, producer Drew McCoy said to Eurogamer, “The world thinks we’re making Titanfall 3 and we’re not- Apex Legends is what we’re making.”
Apex Legends is the result of putting one of the best FPS dev teams in the world on a game focused on doing a few things really well. We look at battle royale as a genre, not a mode, and we're here to help mold it. Hope everyone is enjoying the game as much as we had making it!

Will there be any Titanfall 3?
Hints from Respawn Entertainment, the success that Apex Legends has brought to them make them prioritize the continuation of Apex Legends for now. Apex Legends belongs to the ‘Battle Royale’ genre and released suddenly in 2019 without any prior news.
In October 2019, EA Sports CFO and CCO Blake Jorgensen opened up about the future of Titanfall 3. He said, “We really want to keep the team hyper-focused on Apex Legends because we see there’s so much opportunity there. So I can’t give you a sense of if and when Part 3 will come. But it’s still a great brand and we certainly won’t forget about it down the road.”
Though Apex Legends is a spin-off of Titanfall, yet EA sports are now seeing them as a major game in the franchise. Surely, EA is looking for long-term output from Apex Legends. Also, Jorgensen said, “We view Apex Legends as an annual shooter franchise effectively and we’re trying to build that as a 10-year business.”
However, Respawn Entertainment has also said in public that the next game of Titanfall will surely come in the future. But, when it will come is a big question mark as of now.
Fans love it so much that they’ve filed few petitions on Change.org to bring Titanfall 3 asap. Hopefully, their prayers will be heard soon.
