VentureBeat journalist Jeff Grubb, citing his own whistleblowers told about a new game being developed within the walls of Electronic Arts-owned studio Respawn Entertainment.
Recall that in July 2021, Respawn Entertainment’s then creative head Mohammad Alavi announced a recruitment to the team “New Solo Adventure”. It will be about him.
According to Grubb, the game is a first-person shooter with an emphasis on mobility and style. The project is supposedly conceived by the developers as a blockbuster at AAA level.
(1/2) Today was my last day at Respawn Entertainment. It feels surreal. I’ve been making games for 18 years, always with only two companies: Infinity Ward and Respawn. I spent 11 of those years at Respawn, a company I co-founded.

Until recently, Alavi led the development process of an ambitious shooter, but he recently announced his departure from Respawn Entertainment to join his “next adventure”. What exactly the specialist will do, he did not say.
Grubb’s informants report that Respawn will not cancel the project: in 2022 the team will continue working with prototypes, Electronic Arts has planned the release for 2024-2025.
Grubb specifically stated that Respawn Entertainment’s mystery game is not a sequel to the sci-fi shooter Titanfall 2. The fan-favorite series hasn’t seen a new numbered episode since 2016.
In addition to the ambitious first-person shooter (not Titanfall 3), Respawn Entertainment also actively supports its battle royale Apex Legends and is rumored to be preparing a sequel to the Jedi action Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.
