There are a few things that are a bit weirder than usual when it comes to augurs and signs regarding Titanfall 3 - odd dates in patch notes, a new playlist? - but having endured the last few years, years of psychological famine, belief can be hard work. For some, I guess. For others, it has roughly the same level of intent and exertion as respiration.
We had gotten back into it a while ago, and it's still a completely original thing that hasn't been superseded and nobody has come through to carry forward. They could do a Titanfall remaster and it will still kick ass - that's what a unique lane it's carved out. My biggest fear for Titanfall 3 is that they're gonna do something weird with the name, like make the last two Ls double as two-thirds of the Roman numeral for 3, like:
Or something like that. We keep trying to figure out what Titanfall III would even mean now, if they did do it. People certainly say Single Player content is a hoary old artifact, but Respawn themselves have made two Star Wars games with no service game shit to be found. Making a free to play online thingy doesn't seem to make sense, because they're already doing that with Apex. My darkest, nightmare vision is that their crumb trail leads to some piece of content for Apex Legends, and ended up rousing our cyber-lust for the unique intimacy of a Pilot and their Titan. They might have a hard time bedding that one back down - they should probably make Titanfall III, just to be safe.
