After it was announced on Tuesday that Apex Legends Mobile was being canceled, a new report from Bloomberg states that another secret Apex Legends game has been canceled by EA.
According to Jason Schreier, EA has ceased the development of a game based on the Apex Legends and Titanfall franchises. Known as Titanfall Legends internally, the game was being developed by Respawn Entertainment and was publically unannounced.
The game had originally been directed by Mohammad Alavi, the report says. Alavi ultimately left the company in 2022.

With the game no longer being worked on, it leaves a number of employees without work. Schreier says that EA will attempt to find positions for the team of “about 50 people”. Those not placed elsewhere will be laid off with a severance package.
The news of cancellations comes on the heels of EA announcing that Star Wars Jedi: Survivor has been delayed. That game is also in development at Respawn.
Even with the recent cancellations, EA says that it remains committed to the franchise as a whole. Since its launch in 2019, Apex Legends has made over $2 billion in revenue for EA, making it one of the company’s most successful franchises.
“Respawn and the Apex Legends team remain excited about mobile as a platform and look forward to new opportunities to serve players there in the future,” EA said.
Insider Gaming has reached out to EA for comment, but no response has been received as of publishing.
