Titanfall and Star Wars Developer Respawn Entertainment seem to have a new IP in the works

This previous generation of Respawn Entertainment gradually took the lead in becoming one of Electronic Arts’ crown jewels with hit games such as Titanfall 2, Apex Legends and Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. So, what does the studio work on as we enter the new generation? Apex Legends development will of course continue in Respawn’s new splinter studio in Vancouver, and there are strong rumors that Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order 2 is in the works, but could there be more than that?

According to a new mailing list, Respawn actually wants to form a ‘small’ team to develop a ‘brand new IP’. The rest of the ad is not very revealing, although the successful applicant will help to create technologies that make it possible to ‘adventure forever’. To me, the wording points to another live service game, perhaps in the vein of Apex Legends. The fact that the team will be small is also interesting, although the Apex team was initially also quite small.

One thing we definitely know is not coming soon is Titanfall 3. Vince Zampella, a respawn boss, confirmed so much earlier this year …

There is currently nothing in development. But it’s always there. You see the little bits of stuff that come back in Apex Legends. At one point I personally would like to see some kind of resurrection there. We’ll see if I can make it happen.

The fact that Titanfall is left out in the cold is certainly disappointing, but as Respawn has shown, they have the talent to be more than a one-franchise studio. I’m looking forward to whatever their new IP will be.

Do you have any thoughts on this story? What form will Respawn’s new IP take? What kind of game would you like to have? as to make them?
