Titanfall creators Respawn Entertainment just released the free-to-play battle royale game Apex Legends, but this doesn’t mean the end of Titanfall as we know it. In fact, studio head Vince Zampella says the series will reappear later this year.

On Twitter, Zampella said the company is “working on more Titanfall for later in the year (yes, I said the T word).” Unfortunately, this doesn’t necessarily mean Titanfall 3. In fact, given recent statements made from the studio, we can pretty much say it definitely is not Titanfall 3. So what is Zampella talking about?

In the above tweet, it’s mentioned that Zampella wants to be “able to experiment in this crazy universe!” Seeing as how Apex Legends is technically in the Titanfall universe, we’re probably going to see another smaller game set in the same world. Unfortunately for those of us who want to know everything right now, this is too open-ended. Could we see a Titans-only game in response to the Titan-free Apex Legends? Maybe a strategy game instead of a shooter? The possibilities are virtually endless. Thankfully, we should know what Zampella is refering to by the end of the year.

Speaking of Apex Legends, the freshly-announced and released battle royale game is seeing early success. There have been over one million unique players log in to play in the game’s first eight hours. Only time can tell if the player base can continue to grow, but that’s still a large number of players in a very short time.

We’re still learning everything about Apex Legends, but we know that as of right now there is no cross-platform functionality. This means if you are on a PS4, you’ll only play against other PS4 gamers. If Respawn Entertainment has its way, cross-platform play will be included in a future update. In an interview with Eurogamer, Drew McCoy, lead producer at Respawn, said the company "plans to allow players to play with their friends on other platforms," but says cross-platform progress will be impossible to implement due to how the game was built.

So what do you think? What other ways would you like to see the world of Titanfall explored in a video game? Do you just want to see Titanfall 3 instead? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
