Any hope that Titanfall 3 would be announced in the near future was squashed with the recent announcement that Respawn Entertainment is hiring for a brand new video game IP.
Last last week, Respawn Entertainment programmer Steven Kah Hien Wong tweeted a job opening for a software engineer to join “a compact incubation team currently developing a brand new IP.” The job description offered no real details as to what type of game it is but we do know what it isn’t; Titanfall 3.
Respawn Entertainment studio head Vince Zampella followed the post with his own tweet, adding: “Looking for an exciting new opportunity? New Respawn project, super exciting stuff. Get in early!”
The prospect of a new IP from Respawn Entertainment is an exciting one. The studio has released nothing but hits since it was founded nearly a decade ago. They’re responsible for the Titanfall series (which is criminally underrated) as well as its battle royale spinoff, Apex Legends. Respawn was recently acquired by EA a few years ago and developed 2019’s hit action-adventure Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.
Despite the fact that all of their games have been well-received, they haven’t all sold well. Titanfall, in particular, didn’t quite reach the level of financial success that the studio has probably hoped for. Yet, there’s a strong desire from the community to see a new installment in the franchise.

With the success of Apex Legends, there’s now a new, large audience that has been exposed to the Titanfall universe. The free-to-play game familiarized players with the polished mechanics that a Respawn-developed game could offer. Perhaps the success of Apex Legends, which is free-to-play, could translate into sales success if a new Titanfall game were to release.
While EA and Respawn have assured they won’t forget about Titanfall, it doesn’t sound like there are any plans to revive the franchise any time soon. For now, it seems the prospect of Titanfall 3 is dead. It’s possible we could eventually get one, but it doesn’t seem like either EA or Respawn are interested in the financial risk.
