How is Apex Legends connected to Titanfall?
Apex Legends is set in the same fictional, science-fiction universe as the Titanfall games. More specifically, Apex Legends is set about thirty years after the events of Titanfall 2.
The name of the game is a nod to both the Apex Predators, a mercenary group that appeared in both the first and second Titanfall games, and the Apex Games, the fictional bloodsport later founded by the head of the aforementioned mercenary group.
Thus far, there are no returning characters or places from the Titanfall games that appear in Apex Legends.
