Apex Legends game director Chad Grenier has confirmed that Titanfall content is coming to Apex Legends as part of Season 9, and Nintendo Switch, PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S players are divided over the news. On one hand, Titanfall fans are excited to see the IP again, but many Apex Legends players are worried what this could mean for the game.
Speaking about the content, Grenier didn’t reveal much of consequence, nor did he say how this content will be realized. That said, a leak from last month revealed a character named Blisk who has the ability to summon Titans with their Ultimate. So far, Respawn and EA have not addressed this leak, but you’d imagine this is some, if not all, of the content Grenier is referring to.
While the game director doesn’t touch on the leak, he did say there’s “a ton” of it coming, which does suggest it may be more than just the addition of Blisk.
“Titanfall is a war story. Apex is life after the war. We’re trying to integrate Titanfall into that. We’re looking at what Titanfall means for this universe. It has lasting impacts that are going to become bigger and bigger.”
Unfortunately, this is all Grenier had to say about the topic. That said, what’s here is enough to have some Apex Legends players very excited and others very concerned.

Will Ruin the Game
You bring titans you RUIN the complete dynamic and unique play that is Apex. Don’t become fortnite and don’t ruin the game for everyone. Or if there is. Titans add a separate mode for it.

That’s cool in terms of atmosphere and details, but it doesn’t mean we’ll see wall hanging and running and other TF mechanics.
As it is, the rumoured/leaked auto-titan is worrying people. That might be too much.
Apex is not titanfall and there should be a clear distinction.
