Respawn Entertainment is currently hiring multiple roles to work on a new singleplayer-driven Apex Legends first-person shooter.
New job listings confirm that Respawn is currently assembling an incubation team to start plotting out a new Apex Legends FPS game. There are five listings for the "Apex Universe FPS Incubation team" that say the game will be singleplayer-driven, which is a big departure from the F2P battle royale sensation that has made over $2 billion so far. What's also interesting is the Apex universe is technically the Titanfall universe; in the past, Respawn has teased that more Titanfall games are coming.
"This new singleplayer title is a developer's dream playground with a freedom to innovate made possible by the unique universe it inhabits," a senior environment artist job listing reads.
Respawn is ramping up its workforce for a volley of new projects. The studio is currently hiring 96 people to work on its new games, which include Jedi: Survivor, a new Star Wars FPS and a new strategy game, and the aforementioned Apex mystery shooter. Respawn is also gearing up for Apex Mobile, too.
It's important to remember that incubation means very early pre-production days of development. In short, Respawn hasn't entered principal development of this new Apex/Titanfall FPS game and are in the planning stages right now.
