Titans are the ultimate power fantasy.
According to Lead Producer, Drew McCoy, Titans are a “power fantasy” and didn’t suit the balance of a battle royale game.
“Well, why don’t you just nerf the titans,” McCoy hypothetically asked himself in a conversation with Eurogamer before saying that it didn’t make sense to de-power Titans if they were meant to be all-powerful.
McCoy added that Respawn has tried to maintain balance within the game so that everyone can “come to the table with the same possibilities.”
Apex Legends, a free-to-play battle royale set within the Titanfall universe, is out now on Windows PC, Xbox One and PS4.
