A reliable leaker has revealed more details about EA’s canceled single-player game, set within the Apex Legends and Titanfall universe.
One of the biggest battle-royale games out right now, Apex Legends, was spawned off the popular Titanfall franchise that EA launched in 2014.
With two successful Titanfall games holding many fans at their TVs, hope for a third title waned as the years went on without any news up until the launch of Apex Legends in 2019. Only recently was it revealed by a leaker that EA had been working on a new single-player experience focused on various Apex Legends within the universe.
A Bloomberg article was soon posted that went into further detail about the game’s cancellation. The article goes on to say: “The canceled project, code-named TFL or Titanfall Legends, was a single-player game set in the universe shared by the Apex Legends and Titanfall games.”

He said: “Titanfall Legends was not Titanfall 3, because in a lot of people’s minds I think Titanfall 3 was going to be a new, standalone game with a single-player campaign and multiplayer, and they could just never do that again after Apex Legends changed the calculus on all of those things.
“In two weeks from now Apex Legends is going to get team deathmatch, and that was always part of a plan to turn Apex Legends into this platform where you could get all kinds of different shooter experiences from an expanded Apex Legends / Titanfall world.
“Titanfall Legends was always supposed to slot in as part of that… Titanfall Legends would be a single-player campaign inside of this platform, in the same way Call of Duty works where you get Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone is right there as well.”
Fans would have played as Blisk from the Titanfall series and met various Apex Legends throughout the campaign, giving the player new powers. Inspired by Doom Eternal in its scope, the game would have been a massive tie-in between Apex Legends and Titanfall.
As EA has made roughly over $2 billion in revenue from Apex Legends, it’s safe to say that the game won’t be going anywhere soon. For fans hoping for a potential Titanfall 3 in any form, we now know that wasn’t the canceled project, but it looks unlikely to be on the agenda any time soon.
