Titanfall developer Respawn is working on a new game in the Titanfall universe, but it’s not Titanfall 3, according to a new report.

Jeff Grubb of GameSpot sister site Giant Bomb said Titanfall game director Steve Fukuda is leading a team working on a new game in that universe. “But everyone I talk to keeps saying, well it’s not, don’t get in your mind that it’s Titanfall 3, like a game with online multiplayer and a single-player campaign,” Grubb said, as reported by VGC.

Grubb went on to say that this game, whatever it may or may not turn out to be, has progressed further in development beyond the early prototyping phase and is now considered a “real project,” though it is still reportedly a prototype.

In 2023, we learned that Fukuda was in charge of a “skunkworks” team working on “something new.”

Titanfall fans have been waiting years for a potential sequel to Titanfall 2. It was previously reported that EA canceled a game, “Titanfall Legends,” that would have blended elements of Apex Legends and Titanfall.

2014’s Titanfall was Respawn’s first release after Vince Zampella, Jason West, and numerous other Infinity Ward developers left to start a new company. The game was a success and spawned a sequel, Titanfall 2 (2016), but that would prove to be the final entry in the main series before Respawn shifted focus to its battle royale game, Apex Legends. Since then, fans have called on Respawn to return to the Titanfall series with a bonafide new entry.

Talk of Respawn’s next game comes not long after EA laid off hundreds of developers. As part of the cost-reductions, EA reportedly canceled Respawn’s Star Wars FPS, which was believed to have been a Mandalorian game. Respawn continues to collaborate with Bit Reactor on another Star Wars game, however.

Coming up this week is another Xbox showcase featuring titles from EA, but given how early in development it sounds for Respawn’s new game, fans shouldn’t get their hopes up for a reveal.
