Is A Titanfall Battle Royale Game Just Days Away From A Sneak Launch?

Rumours say that the Titanfall franchise is about to hop onto the battle royale train…

Rod Breslau wrote the following on Twitter: „Sources who have played and have knowledge of the game confirm to me that Respawn is set to announce and release Apex Legends on Monday, February 4, a free to play Titanfall Hero Battle Royale game for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.” Let’s take a look at the calendar… oh, it’s February 3!

Breslau later added that the classes/heroes would have different abilities (and it seems we won’t see the Titans themselves in action this time…), the teams could be three players maximum, and that the player limit on the map(s) would be sixty. If this is true, this would be a major surprise: Apex Legends is rumoured to use a modified Source Engine from Valve!

„Micro-transactions and loot boxes for cosmetic items and in-game content are said to be in Apex Legends with a very similar approach to that in Overwatch. Respawn invited top streamers and esports pros across Battle Royale and other FPS games to playtest Apex Legends in Los Angeles this past week. Speaking anonymously, multiple attendees said the game felt good and were genuinely excited for it,” Breslau later added.

If he is correct, and the free-to-play Apex Legends does end up launching tomorrow, we have to ask a question silently: how will this affect Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order, which is planned to launch around November? We haven’t even seen it yet, and it’s being developed by Respawn…
