Respawn Developing New Single-Player Adventure Set in a Unique Universe - News

Respawn Entertainment creative director Mohammad Alavi via Twitter revealed the developer is working on a new single-player adventure. The team working on the game is currently small. 

"We're developing a brand new singleplayer adventure from Respawn Entertainment," said Alavi. "We're a small, but ambitious team with a history of dreaming big and making splashes."

Respawn is known for developing Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, Apex Legends, and Titanfall. They are currently hiring for a lead technical designer, senior technical game designer, senior combat designer, and senior level designer.

"This new singleplayer title is a designer’s dream playground with a freedom to innovate made possible by the unique universe it inhabits," reads the descriptions to the job listings. "Our critically acclaimed, multi-platform games have always established a 'fun comes first' sensibility in a design process that allows creativity and new ideas to shine."

Respawn confirmed earlier this year it was working on a brand-new IP, alongside a sequel to Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and its continued work on the battle royale game, Apex Legends.

A life-long and avid gamer, William D'Angelo was first introduced to VGChartz in 2007. After years of supporting the site, he was brought on in 2010 as a junior analyst, working his way up to lead analyst in 2012. He has expanded his involvement in the gaming community by producing content on his own YouTube channel and Twitch channel dedicated to gaming Let's Plays and tutorials.

Single player, new IP, unique universe, major developer with a decent budget. Ticks all the boxes so far - look forward to seeing what they come up with.

Sounds good, but I'm still pissed about the death of Titanfall at the hands of Apex.

It didn't die at the hands of Apex. It died because the previous entries didn't sell well enough. If anything, Apex is what allowed it to live on, at least in some sense.

But, yeah, it sucks. Titanfall 2 was an excellent game. I was hoping for a TF3.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I remember that they had confirmed there was a Titanfall series game in development in 2017 after Titanfall 2 released, aiming for Holiday 2019 as I recall, and then it just disappeared and we never heard anything else about it.

Edit: Just checked, when EA acquired Respawn in 2017, EA said they were working on a new mainline Titanfall game. It just disappeared after that, I never heard anything about what happened to it, and have always assumed that EA cancelled it so that the dev team could focus on Apex after it's huge success.

I didn't know that. Anyway, yeah, it sucks that it seems there will not be a TF3.

They literally sent TF2 to die sandwiched between BF1 and CodIW

Interestingly, this article prompted me to read a bit about TF3, and it seems like TF is still alive. I don't have a quote or link handy, but someone at Respawn recently mentioned that there's just a couple of people working on it. So, it must be in very early development.

It's really too bad that Titanfall didn't work out. The second game was great. I think it suffered from bad timing.

The first was also fantastic. Suffered from its fate being tied too closely to the early image of Xbox One

Ea was an idiot releasing titanfalls 2 at the end of October competing with Call of duty early November and battlefield jayzus

I'm hoping it's not another game in the vein of Souls-like. I'd love a little variation from Respawn.

I predict them going more of a TLOU route: semi-linear campaign that's in the third-person stealth-action genre.

They have really been an amazing studio since their creation. They started with GOTG Titanfall. Followed up with TF2, which had an amazing SP and decent MP. And then of course Apex Legends, which has been my favorite of the battle royale games. And Star Wars, which I am still early in, but got great reviews. Their only miss has been their VR MoH game, which wasn't originally intended to be a VR game, and FWIW a meta in the 60's is probably great for VR.
