Goodbye Apex Legends Mobile, Hello New Projects: Inside Electronic Arts' Shocking Decision To Discontinue The Game
Respawn Entertainment, a studio under Electronic Arts umella, has announced that Apex Legends Mobile will be discontinued, as well as the production of a franchise single-play game, popularly called Titan fall Legends, has been canceled.
Sudden End that leaves doubts
Respawn Entertainment has published a message to the community saying that after a strong release, the content plan for Apex Legends Mobile began to be below the quality standard, quantity and frequency. That is why, after months working with our partner of Development, which we make the mutual decision to discontinue our mobile game. Thus, Apex Legends Mobile servers will be active only until May 1st at 18h (asília time). A sudden end that leaves doubts in the air, after all, the game will barely complete a year of existence before being deactivated, originally released on May 17, 2022. Even worse, players who invested money in the game with microtransactions will not be entitled to Refunds.
More than Apex Legends was affected
Battlefield Mobile was another title within Electronic Arts to have his project discontinued, involving the dissolution of the Toys Industrial Studio. After these, a relatively awaited project, of which little is known, will not see the light of day. Bloomberg revealed information through three anonymous sources. They mentioned that the game planned to be a solo adventure mentioned iefly in July 2021 by Mohammad ALADI, Rose's narrative design director, was indeed canceled. Previously, it was known by the Titan fall Legends code name, in reference to Apex Legends and Titan fall, as it should pass the same universe. And although the players expected a lot, even too much given the little we knew about this project, to the point of waiting for a Titan fall 3, nothing has never been revealed about this supposed new title. It is finally a year and a half after we are informed that the publisher would have killed his project by the root, almost a year after Mohammad ALADI left his post at Respawn.
Concern increases, layoffs succeed
Of course, this new revelation that Electronic Arts would probably have been careful not to be revealed was not without effect with the company's fan game community.
Still very active and even usually quite optimistic about the Titanfall-E franchise as a result of the other time they are in doubt about the future of Battle Royale de Respawn. Is it next to the list of games to be closed forever? Despite the current situation at Electronic Arts, nothing seems to indicate any desire to end Apex Legends, although concerns are understandable.
On the other hand, and the fate of more than 50 people who worked on this Titan fall Legends project? So far it is hazy, because, according to Bloomberg sources, the company will try to allocate new internal positions for them... Unfortunately, those who cannot be transferred to another project will simply be dismissed. A new cataclysm, therefore, for one of the giants of the game industry that separates from three projects in just two days, from a studio, but also from some of its employees. And it is for the latter that we mourn these ads the most, as lives and families meet, despite everything, in a delicate situation.
