The previous generation Respawn Entertainment has continuously grown up the ranks to take the place of Electronic Art’s crown jewels with the hit titles like Apex Legends, Titanfall 2, and Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. So, now in the new generation, what the studio is doing? The developments of Apex Legends will be continued at Respawn’s new Vancouver-based splinter studio. According to the rumor, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order 2 is under development.
It is said that Respawn is planning to create a small team to develop a “brand new IP”. The remaining ad is not completely revealing, although the technologies will be developed by the successful applicant, which will enable “adventuring forever.” This may suggesting another live service game. The interesting thing to see that the team will be very small, although the Apex team was also small initially.
Respawn boss Vince Zampella had confirmed in early 2020, “There’s nothing currently in development. But it’s always there. You see the little bits of stuff coming back through the lore in Apex Legends. At some point, I would personally like to see some kind of resurrection there. We’ll see if I can make that happen.”
It is so much disappointing that Titanfall is being left out in the cold. But Respawn is not like that, they have shown their talent to be more than a one-franchise studio. So, let’s see the new IP of Respawn is going to take what kind of form and what type of game they are going to make.
