Respawn is working on a single-player shooter set in the ‘Apex’ universe

At this point, it seems pretty clear that Respawn has moved on from Titanfall, with the studio's main priority now being Apex Legends. We may see some of that Titanfall formula return though, as Respawn has begun hiring for a new single-player shooter. 

While initially Apex Legends was set in the Titanfall universe, it seems Apex is now its own standalone IP. In new job listings (via Dexerto), Respawn reveals it is working on an “Apex Universe FPS incubation project”, which will be a new single-player shooter from the studio.

As this is an incubation project, the team will be small and there will be plenty of prototyping. With that in mind, there isn't a guarantee that this game makes it all the way to release. It is also worth noting that if the project does get pushed through, then it will take a few years to actually make.

Previous reports about a single-player Respawn FPS have hinted at a game with similar mobility and overall style to Titanfall, but not a direct sequel. With these job listings pointing towards an Apex game, it seems like a safe bet that we won't see any titans.

KitGuru Says: Apex Legends is by far the bigger IP at this point, so investing further in that makes sense. Still, it is a huge shame to see Titanfall dropped after the excellent Titanfall 2 campaign.
