Apex Legends, a free-to-play, battle royale spinoff of the Titanfall series, is apparently launching for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC soon.
Recently, renowned Esports journalist Rod Breslau tweeted about Apex Legends, which appears to be rolling out today.
Sources who have played and have knowledge of the game confirm to me that Respawn is set to announce and release Apex Legends on Monday Feb 4, a free to play Titanfall Hero Battle Royale game for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

Apex Legends will show different heroes with unique abilities, with a maximum of 60 players per server in Battle Royale fashion. Similar to other games in the genre (Fortnite, PUBG, Call of Duty, etc) there will be the option to compete in teams, allowing up to three players each.
One of the major differences between Apex Legends and Titanfall is that there will be no show of the mechs – the main selling point of Titanfall. The game will be set in the same universe, but will instead focus on heroes, similar to Overwatch.
Apex Legends will also feature and microtransactions and loot boxes for cosmetic items and other in-game content.
