Respawn Entertainment is a very, very busy developer. Earlier this week the company launched its new free-to-play battle royale game, Apex Legends. Later this year it’s also set to release Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. Now it’s confirmed that more Titanfall content is in the works, but it’s not a Titanfall VR spin-off.
Studio CEO Vince Zampella reaffirmed as much in a recent tweet. In response to recent reports that Apex Legends (itself set in the Titanfall universe) had replaced the much anticipated Titanfall 3, Zampella noted that the studio was “working on more Titanfall” for later in the year. When one fan stated that this would be the VR game Respawn is working on, the CEO simply replied: “No!”

Respawn already stated that its VR game would not be set in the Titanfall or Star Wars universes when it was announced in 2017. It seems like plans haven’t changed over the past two years.
What we do know is that Respawn’s game will be exclusive to Oculus headsets (definitely the Rift, Quest TBA). It’s a shooter that aims to give you an experience “closer to what a soldier would experience in real combat.”
The initial teaser trailer for the game (above) states that it’ll be out this year. That said, it was a no-show at Oculus Connect 5 last September. Oculus assured us that work on the game was progressing at the time. Still, with so many other projects in the works and Oculus revealing other exclusives like Asgard’s Wrath, we’re beginning to wonder if this project will really be out in 2019.
