The Titanfall group, perpetually unable to catch a break within the hopes for the way forward for their wall-running FPS franchise, has had rather a lot to say a couple of latest report of a single-player Apex Legends sport being canceled.
A report on Wednesday, Feb. 1 claimed that EA and Respawn Entertainment had pulled the plug on a single-player sport within the Titanfall and Apex universe, and one other report from Giant Bomb’s Jeff Grub on Feb. 2 added some painful particulars to the revelation.
According to Grubb, talking on Giant Bomb’s Twitch channel, the canceled title was set to be one thing of a marketing campaign for Apex, that includes Titanfall characters like Kuben Blisk and the Titan BT, wall-running gameplay, and legends from the battle royale title. He additionally mentioned it was impressed by Doom Eternal, and Apex’s Rampart would by some means deliver the Titan BT again to life.
Grubb later added additional data, saying that the sport was “going to take inspiration from Hades” the place “you might start with a dash, but then you can unlock a dash that deflects enemy fire back at them.” He added that the sport “was gonna be so good.”
The information hit the Titanfall Reddit, and the commenters there had some curiously blended reactions. Some of the group members consider Grubb’s report back to be too good to be true, whereas others are fairly upset on the information for a wide range of causes.
“As much as I want more Titanfall, the idea of bringing back BT but not Jack Cooper does not sit well with me,” one commenter mentioned. “This description sounds more like [clickbait] than a true well-thought out game.”
Some others within the thread don’t need Apex blended in with their Titanfall, which appears inevitable, contemplating they’re each from the identical universe and have quite a few characters crossing over.
“This feels like it could be controversial but: as someone who loves TF but doesn’t really get into Apex, I don’t want Apex involved,” one other remark mentioned. “I want a sequel to TF2, not a merge of TF and Apex.“
Another commenter had a unique opinion about the reported cancelation of a new game in the series: joy.
“I’m [not gonna lie], I’m glad it got canceled,” one Redditor mentioned in a remark with over 360 upvotes. “Don’t get me wrong, I love Titanfall but that sounds awful. Like a fever dream crossed with nostalgia bait wrapped up in [an] Apex wrapping paper.”
Most commenters agreed that the record of factors revealed by Grubb might have been storyboard brainstorming materials and never reasonable to get into the precise sport, which now will more than likely by no means see the sunshine of day.
“As another member said, this feels way too good to be true as an actual game, it may have been a wishlist, but this wouldn’t have all made it,” the most-upvoted remark within the thread reads.
Sadly, we are going to by no means know what this potential sport would have seemed like. For now, it seems Respawn and EA are centered on Apex’s battle royale sport, and Titanfall could also be shelved for the foreseeable future.
