EA reportedly cancels new Titanfall single
It’s no secret that the video game industry is in a bit of a tough spot right now. With the coronavirus pandemic wreaking havoc on the global economy, many game companies are struggling to stay afloat. One such company is Electronic Arts, which has reportedly cancelled a secret Titanfall game that was in development.
This is just the latest in a string of bad news for the company. Last year, EA was forced to cancel its highly anticipated Star Wars game, and more recently, it was hit with a lawsuits over its use of “loot boxes” in its games.
Now, it seems, the company is cancelling yet another game. According to a report from Kotaku, EA has cancelled a mash-up of Titanfall and Apex Legends, two of its most popular games. The game was reportedly in development at Respawn Entertainment, the studio behind the Titanfall franchise.
The news comes as a huge blow to fans of both franchises, who were eagerly awaiting the game’s release. It’s also a blow to EA, which is already facing stiff competition from other battle royale games, such as Fortnite and PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds.
It’s unclear why EA decided to cancel the game, but it’s likely due to the current state of the economy. With the pandemic causing a decline in consumer spending, it’s likely that EA felt it was too risky to release a new game.
This is a shame, as the game sounded like it would have been a lot of fun. It’s a shame that we won’t get to play it, but hopefully EA will reconsider its decision and release the game at a later date.
