Job listings sure sounds like they’re for an Apex Legends single-player game
Developer Respawn Entertainment has recently posted several job listings that point to a single-player game set in the Apex Legends universe.
As spotted by Dexerto (via Polygon), Respawn is currently hiring for a senior systems engineer that will work on an “Apex Universe FPS Incubation Title.” Other job listings for a senior environment artist and a hard surface artist are both for a “brand new Respawn single-player adventure” as part of the “Apex Universe FPS Incubation” team.
Of course, our first question is, “Is this Titanfall 3?” Given the success that Apex Legends has earned for both Respawn (and its head honcho, Vince Zampella, who recently took over the Battlefield universe, too) and publisher Electronic Arts, we’re not holding our breath that we’re getting a full-on Titanfall sequel, even though both series do take place in the same narrative universe.
Still, we have our suspicions that this will be an FPS title with both single-player campaign and more traditional multiplayer modes. Most tellingly, the senior systems engineer listing requires that candidates have “console programming experience on a multiplayer AAA game.”
When the game does launch, it also looks like it will launch across every major platform, including the Nintendo Switch. The same engineer job listing asks that candidates have experience working on both Windows PC as well as all three major console manufacturers.
