Apex Legends developer Respawn is working on a new project

According to a now-deleted job posting, Respawn Entertainment is currently working on a new project. The link to the job listing takes you to a blank page with an error message, but the URL can confirm the EA-owned studio was seeking a 'generalist software engineer' for its 'new IP incubation team'. According to VG24/7, there wasn't much more said about the project, except a mention of 'new, practice technologies to enable 'adventuring forever.'' 

The new project will follow the success of the 2019 Star Wars game Jedi: Fallen Order, which smashed EA's initial sales targets. Respawn has also struck gold with Apex Legends, which is currently in its seventh season.

Fans have been hoping for a sequel to Respawn's other project, Titanfall. But back in May of 2020, the studio stated that they weren't currently working on one, despite EA's earlier comments that a new entry was in the works. It seems if the project was happening, it's been temporarily pushed to the side in favour of Apex Legends.

Whether Respawn's new project will be a single-player experience or something more akin to Apex is yet to be determined. There's a chance we'll hear more later in the year at EA Play, usually scheduled around June—only time will tell.

A fresh writer in the industry, Mollie has been taken under PC Gamer's RGB-laden wing, making sure she doesn't get up to too much mischief on the site. She's not quite sure what a Command & Conquer is, but she can rattle on for hours about all the obscure rhythm games and strange MMOs from the 2000s. She's been cooking up all manner of news, previews and features while she's been here, but especially enjoys when she gets to write about Final Fantasy, Persona, The Sims, and whatever other game she's currently hopelessly fixated on. There's a good chance she's boring another PC Gamer writer about her latest obsession as we speak.
