The Apex Legends developers revealed Season 9 will feature "a ton" of Titanfall content. In an Apex Legends Developer Panel hosted by BrwnGrlGamrCode, Respawn, developer of both Apex Legends and Titanfall, explained that fans of the FPS should "hang on for Season 9" of the popular battle royale.
Apex Legends Devs Say Season 9 Will Have "A Ton" of Titanfall Content
Fans of both the FPS and battle royale have already seen and understood a number of similarities between the two games. The Apex Games take place a couple decades after the end of the war story featured in Titanfall and Titanfall 2, and the commissioner is none other than Kuben Blisk.
Blisk is a prominent character in the Titanfall series, and is the teased Season 9 character according to leaks. Leaked gameplay on the Nintendo Switch showed off some of his abilities, including an automatic Titan.
"What's going on in Titanfall is a war, Apex is what happens after the war, like what is life like in this place?” Ashley Reed, Apex Senior Writer, said. “So we’re trying to integrate Titanfall into that, because Titanfall’s very much a part of the universe.”
Although the panel didn't get into specifics, Chad Grenier, Game Director, said, “I’ve told some people before, if you’re a Titanfall fan, hang on for Season 9 because there’s gonna be some really cool stuff there."
For now, we'll have to wait on more information. Season 9 is a short month away and is set to have a lot of changes. A start date most likely to occur on either May 3, the same end date for Season 8, or May 4.
