Titanfall battle royale rumored to launch soon, minus the Titans

Titanfall battle royale rumored to launch soon, minus the Titans

While neither Respawn or EA have confirmed the game's existence, several sources including popular E-sport journalist Rod Breslau are talking about it.

Live streamers and YouTubers traveled to Los Angeles last week to play the new title.

Apex Legends will feature classes/heroes with unique abilities, maximum of 60 players per server, maximum of 3 players per team (trios) to compliment each other. Apex Legends should launch for PC, PS4, and Xbox One tomorrow, February 4. Dubbed Apex Legends, the game has been described as a mix of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4's Blackout and Rainbow Six Siege. These microtransactions will be similar to those featured in Overwatch so hopefully this won't turn into a pay to win game.

Amazon sales outlook falls short after record holiday quarter
Amazon .com delivered revenues of $72.4 billion, capping off a year in which it reported total revenues of $232.9 billion. Amazon has historically delivered relatively little profit as it fulfills Bezos's strategy of investing to stay ahead.

Both previous Titanfall games run on a modified version of the Source engine with earlier rumors suggesting Respawn was in fact already in production of a third installment of Titanfall but felt the Source engine was dated and the game would suffer and look sub par. Multiple reports have now surfaced that a new Titanfall game is set to be announced and released very soon. I do find the lack of Titans slightly disturbing. Yes, a Titanfall battle royale game is said to be coming this Monday, and what's more, it'll be free-to-play!

Update: Apparently Apex Legends was shown off in an advert during the Super Bowl, but this author only watches real football, so he had no way of knowing. The game should be released by the end of 2019.
