Apex Legends developer Respawn is recruiting for a new singleplayer shooter set in the Apex/Titanfall universe.
For now, little is known about it other than its placeholder name: “Apex Universe FPS Incubation Title”.
As spotted by Dextero (opens in new tab), Respawn’s careers page (opens in new tab) is currently recruiting all manner of roles for all manner of titles, including Apex Legends, Jedi: Survivor – the sequel to the brilliant Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order – at least one unknown IP, and that mysterious Star Wars FPS which as yet has no official title.
But while many of us may weep that there’s, as yet, no mention of Titanfall 3, the job listings trying to recruit new devs to the “Apex Universe FPS Incubation Title” project suggest that it will be a single-player first-person shooter, albeit one that’s in very, very early development.
“You will be working on an early stage incubation project so a flexible mindset is a must, and your opportunity to participate in design and have your voice as part of the product will be high,” one of the programmer adverts (opens in new tab) explains.
“This new single-player title is a developer’s dream playground with the freedom to innovate made possible by the unique universe it inhabits,” says another (opens in new tab), this one recruiting a hard surface artist. “Our critically acclaimed, multi-platform games have always established a ‘fun comes first’ sensibility created with the notion that great ideas can come from anyone, which allows creativity to shine and individuals to shape the game in meaningful ways.”
ICYMI, in celebration of Pride Month, we spoke to Respawn about Apex Legends and its inclusive cast of LGBTQIA+ characters.
“Since its launch in 2019, Respawn has been loud and outspoken about queer rights both within Apex Legends and outside of it,” Alyssa wrote in her fabulous feature, no game does pride month like Apex Legends (opens in new tab).
“From its inception, it’s been clear that the team is dedicated to creating characters that are reflective of both its community and a large, global community, and its efforts have resulted in a game that’s as vibrant and diverse as it is enjoyable.
“We might be a Battle Royale game, but we are a squad-based community who I believe have each other’s back,” narrative director Manny Hagopian said at the time. “The more we build representation, the more support we will all have for each other in the end.”
