In the face of several recent leaks claiming that a new entry in the Titanfall series is in development, Apex Legends game director, Chad Grenier, has confirmed Titanfall 3 is not being worked on.

Over the last several months, data-miners have been hard at work uncovering Apex Legends secrets ahead of the highly anticipated Season 7 release, including information related to the new season’s vehicles, weapon attachments, and the new Olympus map and Horizon Legend.

In addition to the details surrounding the new content, several leakers reported evidence that Respawn developers were also actively working on the next title in the Titanfall series.

Speaking in an interview ahead of Season 7’s launch, Chad Grenier, Game Director of the studio’s hit battle royale, refuted these claims and said that Respawn has no new Titanfall games in the works.

No luck for hopeful Titanfall 3 fans

In the interview with Eurogamer, Grenier spoke at length about the new features and systems coming to Apex Legends with the release of Season 7, Ascension, on November 4.

Grenier specifically outlined the transition of Olympus from a Titanfall 3 concept to the third map being released for the BR. However, when asked about the studio’s plans for a new entry in the Titanfall series, the Game Director openly stated “nobody is currently working on Titanfall 3.”

He also spoke about the more distant future of the battle royale title, confirming that Respawn is working on content for five more seasons after the release of S7, and has plans for additional content beyond that.

Apex Legends to fill the void?

Grenier’s confirmation that Titanfall 3 is not in active development pours cold water on leaks and rumors that it was in the works. However, in the same interview, Grenier mentioned that Respawn has plans to make Apex Legends more than just a battle royale, and that fans of Titanfall will be very excited about what is to come.

“Apex is in the Titanfall universe. So we’re always bringing things from Titanfall into Apex,” he said, highlighting Ash in the Season 5 quest. “So we get to bring a lot of the stuff that we enjoy in Titanfall into Apex. Looking at future seasons and animated shorts, and things that are coming out next year, I think any Titanfall fan is gonna be super excited.”

While the Titanfall series is considered a classic FPS and maintains a dedicated core player base (with a recent Steam release providing a huge influx of new Pilots as well), Respawn has remained tight-lipped on their plans for the franchise since the initial release of Apex Legends.

While data miners may continue to find evidence of a new title in the works, Titanfall fans could be in for a long spell of disappointment in their wait for official confirmation from Respawn.

Upcoming skins and charms for Apex Legends’ holiday-themed Holo-Day Bash event have been leaked, revealing new cosmetics for Loba, Revenant, and Wraith along with a Christmastime theme for the lobby.

With the holiday festivities among us, Respawn are cooking up a trove of content themed around the winter season. It’s not yet known what the devs are planning in terms of major LTMs or the like, but a new leak shows us just how many cosmetics players can expect to collect.

While there will be some skins returning from 2019, there’s going to be a healthy batch of completely fresh designs for the Apex community to pick up.

Popular Apex Legends dataminer ‘Biast12’ found a wealth of new information in Apex’s files that show how the holiday offers will look like when they drop in the shop.

Apex Legends Holo-Day bundles

There will be multiple sets on display in the shop for the coming months – about eight bundles in total, most of which will include a Rare or Epic skin for a Legend or weapon. Biast put together a showcase that prominently features every cosmetic in the leak which is expected to drop sometime soon.

While none of the bundles currently have a proper name attached to their file, we still have the full scope of what Respawn are looking to offer, including the amazing ‘Brudda Bear’ skin for Gibraltar.

Other character skins of note come in the form of Crypto’s Cool Operator, Revenant’s Frost Ancient, and Loba’s Crystalline Perfection.

Apex Legends Holo-Day Bash tracker also leaked

Respawn’s non-denominational-holiday presents to the Apex community will reportedly come in the form of a brand new content for players to grind for.

The Holo-Day Bash tracker will have 10 different tiers with a total of 4000 XP all the way. Every level will reward anything from banner badges to Rare skins for Bloodhound and Horizon.

The leaked image also invites players “aboard the new-and-improved Winter Express,” so a return of the holiday LTM could be in the cards.

When is the Apex Legends Holo-Day Bash 2020 event?

While there hasn’t been any indication that there will be a huge event like last year, Apex players will at least get the chance to score new loot for their Legends.

No times have been suggested for 2020’s Holo-Day Bash, although previous leaks have mentioned dates ranging from December 1 to January 4, according to PCGamesN. Last year’s event ran from December 12 to January 7, along with the Winter Express LTM.

As always, we will continue to bring you the latest news for this as more information gets announced and/or leaked.
