Titanfall 3, the long-awaited third installment to Respawn Entertainment’s explosive Titan based FPS franchise, is very “real” and reportedly already in early development, according to rumored sources from a known Apex Legends leaker.

Respawn has long denied the existence of Titanfall 3, which originally became Apex Legends during the height of the Fortnite-led battle royale craze.

A Titanfall sequel has never officially been off the table, however, with franchise publisher EA even admitting one could come “down the road” if the opportunity ever presented itself.

As it turns out, that time may be sooner than we think. New insider rumors are suggesting a possible Titanfall 3 release is definitely “real,” with the plotted trilogy title actually already in development behind the scenes at Respawn’s studios.

Titanfall fans could finally be heading back to the frontier, if new reports are to be believed.

The new Titanfall 3 rumors come from Apex Legends content creator TheNeon_Beast, who has proven himself as a solid insider source throughout the battle royale’s sixth season.

“Titanfall 3 is for real,” the Brazilian leaker said in a now-deleted tweet. “I’m pretty sure leakers can say the same, cuz we have totally different sources. The good thing is: even with different sources, the rumor is exactly the same.”

The streamer added he “doesn’t believe in coincidences.” Dexerto reached out to Winchester for further details, but he did not reply before the publishing deadline.

Popular data miner Biast12, who has become a leading Apex Legends leaker in recent times, shared Winchester’s tweet with his own confirmation. “Yeah, I can confirm that part,” the data miner said, in regards to Titanfall 3 being “real.”

If these new Titanfall 3 rumors turn out to be true, Respawn must have green-lit the highly-anticipated sequel in the past few months. Back in May, Respawn co-founder Vince Zampella admitted there was “nothing currently in development.”

At the same time, the former Modern Warfare guru did admit he was very interested in seeing “some kind of resurrection there.” Zampella also promised he would “see if [he] could make something happen.” Maybe he really did?

Titanfall 3 may reportedly be “real,” but that doesn’t mean it would be coming any time soon. Apex Legends is still Respawn’s main focus, and with the current work-from-home situation slowing them down on that, Titanfall 3 production wouldn’t have fared much better.

For now, keep your eyes peeled; Respawn is sure to begin teasing the anticipated trilogy release soon, if it is indeed being worked on behind the scenes.

There’s plenty happening in Apex Legends to tide you over too: Season 7 is on the horizon, and Pathfinder is finally set to be buffed again. The battle royale will also be getting its huge crossplay update soon; it’s all happening in Apex Legends!

Apex Legends Season 7 is on the horizon, which means a new Legend, new weapons and even a new map. So, here’s everything we know so far.

Since releasing back in February 2019, Apex Legends has cemented itself as one of the premier battle royale games around. 

Season 7 has been moved up a week, now starting on November 4, cutting your time short to complete the battle pass, if you’re still grinding through it.

The new Legend added to the roster, Horizon, will no doubt be the biggest talking point, but fans are eagerly awaiting the new map, Olympus, the vehicle, Trident, weapons, and more. So, here’s everything we know so far about what Season 7 could have in store.

Apex Legends Season 7 legend

Horizon is set to become the new Legend in Season 7, joining the roster after her teasers in the Firing Range and most recently in the Ascension trailer. However, Respawn hasn’t as of yet confirmed her abilities, but the trailer showcased a fantastic peek into her skills which will no doubt be a great way to secure the win against your enemies.

Data miners have, however, provided us with a clear indication of what Horizon’s abilities will be like, one being Gravity Lifts, which we got a teaser of in-game.

Olympus map in Apex Legends Season 7

Respawn also previously treated fans to a small look at the new map, Olympus, via an Instagram Apex Legends effect. With the release of the Ascension trailer on October 28, however, we get a broader view of this stunning map.

The map is bright and highly saturated, full of pink and red-hued trees, lush grass, and gigantic sprawling architecture that will make for a refreshing change from the already fantastic maps available to players in the past.

Olympus is a city in the sky, but it has changed drastically from how it looked before disaster hit it.

Apex Legends buffs in Season 7

In the case of Legend changes, the Respawn team regularly tweaks a few things at the start of each season – be it cutting down a cooldown on a certain ability or giving a legend a brand new passive. 

Pathfinder has already been confirmed to be getting a buff in the near future, and it makes sense that this would come in Season 7. 

Respawn have now also confirmed that Mirage and Rampart will be getting buffs in the new Season, though haven’t given any details on what exactly they will be yet.

We have also been treated to a new peak at the Trident; a new vehicle that seems to resemble a hovercraft and can take multiple passengers. This is sure to be a fantastic addition to the arsenal of options available to players in how they traverse the map and get that edge over their enemies.

Season 7 introduces clubs

The official Apex Legends website also confirms Clubs are arriving, which as of now are only described as being a way to “find like-minded players, build a community, and rise together.” It will be interesting to see how these Clubs are developed and what it will mean for those that are in them.

Apex on Steam

With the launch of Season 7, Apex Legends will become available for the first time on Steam, with even greater news: player progress will carry over if you were playing on Origin before. Playing on Steam in Season 7 will also give players special Valve-inspired gun charms. This is a fantastic addition for those who like to utilize Steam as their centralized hub for their gaming.

New weapon type: Gadgets

It has also been suggested that a new weapon type – Gadgets – are also set to appear in Apex Legends in the future.

Reliable data miner Shurgtal pointed out that there is in-game code for Gadgets and suggested that they could be things like smoke grenades that are non-combat throwable items. These haven’t appeared in-game during Season 6, and could be ripe for Season 7.

As we approach the new season, we’ll keep this post updated with any claims from reliable lakers or just flat out confirmed changes from Respawn themselves.
