A Venturebeat report by Jeff Grubb confirms that Respawn Entertainment is working on a triple-A game with a focus on mobility. Aclara, without embargo, which is not a sequel to Titanfall.
The information comes from the announcement of the resignation of Mohammad Alavi, the current creative director of Respawn. Alavi is known, among other things, for being one of the designers of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. He will also be the director, in theory, of this new project. However, Venturebeat insists that his departure does not mean the project has been cancelled, and that Electronic Arts, the publisher, plans to release it in 2024 or 2025.
(1/2) Today was my last day at Respawn Entertainment. It’s surreal. I made games for just 18 years at two companies: Infinity Ward and Respawn. 11 of those years were at Respawn, a company I helped start.

The game will therefore be intended for next-gen consoles and PCs, and will focus on movement within the scenes, with mechanics created specifically to accelerate this dynamic. In the meantime, the studio will continue to work on Apex Legends and the sequel to Star Wars: Jedi: Fallen Order.
