In 2016, Titanfall 2 was hailed as one of the best multiplayer games of the decade. Given this popularity, it is not surprising that fans have been waiting eagerly for the next in the series - a potential Titanfall 3. However, Electronic Arts have come out and said that the decision to go ahead with the series is completely up to Respawn Entertainment.

While Respawn came out with Apex Legends in 2019 to unprecedented success, fans were disappointed that despite being set in the Titanfall universe, it was not the third in the Titanfall series. Fans remain hopeful however that a Titanfall 3 is still possible.

In an interview with IGN, Laura Miele (Chief Studio Officer at EA) confirmed that any potential addition to the Titanfall series is down to Respawn.

"Apex takes place in the Titanfall world and the Respawn team is incredibly proud of that legacy and brand," she tells IGN. "That team will determine what the future holds for Apex and Titanfall."

While Respawn have not come out with an official statement, Game Director for Apex Legends Chad Grenier has answered fans questions on Twitter.

Grenier responded to a fan saying: "Yes! Loved Titanfall 2, campaign was a blast creating. I think there are a lot of people who would love a sequel, or never experienced 1 & 2."

So while it certainly looks like Titanfall is definitely a favorite of fans and developers alike, there is still no guarantee of a third game. Respawn's current priorities seem to be focused on Apex Legends and with it being released on the Nintendo Switch later in 2021, its not that surprising.
