The original Titanfall has long been unplayable thanks to a persistent hacker who takes advantage of security vulnerabilities on his servers. Titanfall 2 has also been affected, though not as persistently (and at least has a single-player campaign to relapse). The long-running problem even caused some Titanfall fans to hack Respawn's new Apex Legends game in a misguided attempt to draw attention to the matter.
During one of his regular "morning tea" broadcasts, Respawn's community coordinator Jason Garza answered a question on the topic of a player who wrote: "Our community is in the our tip and it feels abandoned. "
“You’re not abandoned,” Garza began. "It's a beat-a-mole game with that." He went on to explain that while he didn't want to repeat that the team was working on the issue because "it can only be heard so many times before it's useless," they're definitely working on it. "Because now it's a different kind of game with these people doing DDOS and stuff like that, and blacklisting and stuff like that, so we can't telegraph our moves, we can't say what we're doing. All I can say is we're working on it. "
Players may not be so happy to learn that, according to Garza, "the thing is, we only have one or two people there because everyone else is on Apex." Although the number of people assigned to seven-year-old multiplayer games in other studies is certainly not greater, given the degree of projection of the problem. Save the Titanfall website and the Discord community is committed to making sure no one forgets that a game that still sells for $ 20 is impossible to play; the community is unlikely to jump for joy at this news.
