The development of the game is strange. It takes a lot of time and energy to create concepts and models that have a pretty high chance of being cut during development. For this reason, it makes sense for developers to save discarded ideas in which they put a lot of resources for future titles. It appears that Respawn's popular new Battle Royale game, Apex Legends used this trick for the figure Bloodhound appearing in the conceptual art of Titanfall .
The early character art shows an almost completed model for Bloodhound, which is almost exactly what is featured in Apex Legends although in this iteration the character has both a rifle and a bow. If the original Titanfall had a true story mode, Bloodhound seems to be the universe given the context of Titanfall . It is also quite strange that the figure did not appear in the campaign Titanfall 2, as the figure would fit well with the themes of exploration and survival of the story.

So far, Apex Legends has been a hit. It has managed to reach over 10 million players in the short space of time since the surprise start, and it has even helped EA's stock price soar after a sharp decline. It will be interesting to see how the game can hold up against bigger competitors like Fortnite (19459018) in the long run, but Respawn has been making great efforts to keep his players engaged and entertained, and will probably continue to do so when Turn contents like the leaked rank mode into real.
Since Respawn points out that Apex Legends is a 10-year game, it seems quite likely that other unused character concepts may eventually become reality in the game. There are a lot of different options that would fit well in the title, and new character updates are probably the best way to get the fans to go for more rounds, in addition to the solo and duo game.
Hopefully Respawn can satisfy the fans with Apex Legends. Perhaps it will suffice to create more excitement for the Titanfall premium, which will be released in 2019.
Apex Legends can now be downloaded to PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
