Sometime over the weekend, Apex Legends developer Respawn Entertainment updated its hiring website with a new job listing. The studio is currently seeking a senior systems engineer for a game the listing describes as an “Apex universe FPS incubation project.” The listing confirms that a single-player FPS set in the Titanfall/Apex Legends universe is currently in the works at Respawn.
Fans have been aware that the studio is cooking up some sort of single-player experience since former Apex Legends narrative design director Mohammad Alavi tweeted about a new single-player title Respawn began work on last year, though many players noted that the title in question could simply be one of several Star Wars games the studio has planned.
However, the revelation that this new game will be set in the Apex Legends universe comes as a bit of a shock to the playerbase, especially given the fact that Respawn has repeatedly shut down Titanfall 3 rumors, despite players clamoring for a third installment in the series. But things appear to have changed somewhat over the course of the last year. Exactly two months after Alavi’s June 2021 tweet mentioning the new single-player project, Respawn hinted that Titanfall’s story isn’t entirely over.
