Titanfall Battle Royale Apex Legends is Releasing Soon

According to reports, a free-to-play Titanfall Battle Royale game titled Apex Legends is coming very soon from Respawn Entertainment.

Though involvement of Electronic Arts as a publisher can ruin pretty much everything, first-person shooter game series Titanfall from developer Respawn Entertainment did quite well and even saw release of a sequel that met with mostly positive reviews.

Apparently, the developers were busy working on a Battle Royale game set in the Titanfall universe for some time and they were about to announce it on Monday, same day when they also planned to launch the title before the news got leaked.

Before any confirmation comes from the company, many news outlets have picked the news after YouTube channel TheQuartering has covered the news only for eSports journalist Rod Breslau and Jason Schreier of Kotaku eventually confirming it.

The original title from 2014 was loved by the critics and fans alike, leading to Titanfall 2 in 2016 that has also received critical acclaim. Despite many having anticipated a third installment from the series, we are getting a Battle Royale title for now instead.

Apex Legends plans to feature micro-transactions of loot boxes for cosmetic items and this new shooter will run on a modified version of Valve's Source engine. They are taking a very much similar approach like popular hero shooter Overwatch.
