Since Apex Legends launched in February 2019, players have been wanting more crossover content from its related Titanfall universe. Over the weekend, developers at Respawn hinted that we’ll be getting a lot more Titanfall in the game’s next season.
As reported by Dexerto, on a recent panel called BrownGirlGamerCode, Game Director Chad Grenier said, “We bring a lot of things from Titanfall into the game almost every season. Next season, Season 9, you’re actually going to see a ton of Titanfall coming back into the game, in one way or another...If you’re a Titanfall fan, hang on for season 9.”
It’s not a lot to go on, but it’s more than the vague hints we’ve heard lately. Recently, supposed leaks of a character called Blisk have had Apex players speculating that Titans could be coming to the game, given that video shows Blisk deploying a Titan-like robot. Apex players have long been hoping for Titanfall’s mechs, though Respawn has been pretty clear they won’t be coming.
Apex Legends and Titanfall share a universe, and we’ve previously seen hints of Titanfall lore in Apex, alongside Titanfall weapons and beasts like Leviathans, Flyers, and Prowlers. Personally, I could live without Titans in Apex, though I’ll stubbornly hang on to the pipe dream of wall-running, because it rules.
We’ll see what Season 9 brings. Apex Legends’ Season 8 began in early February, and since seasons last about three months, we’ll hopefully see what the developers are cooking up in May.
