Is Apex Legends a Titanfall 2 Sequel?

Let’s go and start with the most important answer of whether or not Apex Legends is a Titanfall 2 sequel. Yes, it is a sequel to developer Respawn Entertainment’s previous title but an indirect one. Basically, it takes place in the same universe and is after that game but isn’t necessarily the Titanfall 3 that most fans are hoping for right now.

Instead, it is more of a spin-off game that just so happens to take place in the same universe and share similar elements. But where does Apex Legends fall on the official timeline for the series? If it isn’t a direct Titanfall 2 sequel, when does it take place? Well, thankfully, we have the answer to this as well.

Apex Legends takes place around 30 years after the ending of Titanfall 2. While it doesn’t necessarily reference or even call back to that game, it is an indirect sequel of sorts. Instead, it’s best thought of like a spin-off in the series that features characters battling it out to the last person  (or robot) standing. We’ll just have to wait and see if there ever will be a Titanfall 3.
