We’ve learned Apex Legends gets Titanfall content in season nine, despite the fact that the arena shooter takes place in the same universe as its forebear.
The news comes via a panel hosed by Apex Legends developer Respawn Entertainment staff and BrownGirlGamerCode (via Dexerto) where they teased Titanfall fans have “some really cool stuff” to look forward to in the game’s forthcoming season nine.
“Next season, Season 9, you’re actually going to see a ton of Titanfall coming back into the game, in one way or another,” Apex Legends game director Chad Grenier teased. “I’ve told some people before, if you’re a Titanfall fan, hang on for Season 9 because there’s gonna be some really cool stuff there.”
Apex Legends senior writer Ashley Reed talked up how both games are totally connected from the same shared universe, and how this is a natural step for the shooter.
“What’s going on in Titanfall is a war, Apex is what happens after the war, like what is life like in this place?” Reed said. “So we’re trying to integrate Titanfall into that, because Titanfall’s very much a part of the universe.”
Titanfall weapons have already been in the game for some time now, however this definitely seems to be something more substantial.
The last Titanfall game was Titanfall 2, which released back in 2016 for Windows PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. While the game was well-received, Respawn Entertainment eventually put its planned sequel on hold to focus entirely on Apex Legends, the arena shooter set in the same universe as the first two games.
Apex Legends has been available for Windows PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
