With Apex Legends somewhat stealth launch this morning, the timing of the Titanfall spin-off’s release isn’t going unnoticed by a few. Rumoured, teased and released in the days following Anthem’s public demo, Respawn Entertainment appears to be more than happy to go head-to-head with EA’s other, and far more publicised, release in February.
We were fortunate enough to sit down with Mackey McCandlish, design director at Respawn, where he explained their stance on the release timing.

“You know I think that games compete with all forms of entertainment, be it another battle royale, Netflix, tennis, or watching football or even going to hang out with your family – as entertaining as that can be, anyway,” said McCandlish.
