Titanfall and Titanfall 2 had so many great mechanics that it’s a shame for them to be shelved just because Apex Legends is so popular. Respawn seems to think so too. That’s why they plan to bring back some old-school Titanfall content in the next season of Apex Legends.
“What’s going on in Titanfall is a war, Apex is what happens after the war, like what is life like in this place?” explained Apex senior writer Ashley Reed during a panel at BrownGirlGamer Code. “So we’re trying to integrate Titanfall into that because Titanfall’s very much a part of the universe.”
Apex director Chad Grenier added to Reed’s teaser with some Titanfall promises of his own. “Next season–Season 9–you’re actually going to see a ton of Titanfall coming back into the game, in one way or another. I’ve told some people before, if you’re a Titanfall fan, hang on for Season 9 because there’s gonna be some really cool stuff there.”
Neither Reed nor Grenier offered any specifics, but they could be referring to something hinted at in an earlier Apex Legends leak.
Video footage posted to social media from Apex dataminer Biast12 gave us a sneak peek at Blisk and his ability to summon a Titan. It doesn’t work the same as in the Titanfall games, however; instead of hopping inside and going berserk with machine guns and rockets, it sort of just stands there like a glorified turret before exploding.
Honestly, a bit disappointing, but then there’s still time for Respawn to make Blisk’s abilities a little more exciting. That and Blisk still hasn’t been confirmed for Season 9, although he’d be a great way of integrating Apex Legends with the larger Titanfall universe.

Actually a collective of 6 hamsters piloting a human-shaped robot, Sean hails from Toronto, Canada. Passionate about gaming from a young age, those hamsters would probably have taken over the world by now if they didn’t vastly prefer playing and writing about video games instead.
The hamsters are so far into their long-con that they’ve managed to acquire a bachelor’s degree from the University of Waterloo and used that to convince the fine editors at TheGamer that they can write “gud werds,” when in reality they just have a very sophisticated spellchecker program installed in the robot’s central processing unit.
