Apex Legends will feature classes/heroes with unique abilities, maximum of 60 players per server, maximum of 3 players per team (trios) to compliment each other. No titans. Just as Titanfall and Titanfall 2, Apex Legends will run on a modified version of Valve’s Source engine.

This is a separate project to Jedi: Fallen Order, the Star Wars game Respawn mentioned it was working on last year. It’s also, reportedly, completely distinct to a fully-fledged Titanfall 3.
