That cheats and hackers have taken advantage of the vulnerabilities of Titanfall’s servers (the first, above all) is a well-known problem within the community of the already veteran title. Respawn Entertainment, the studio responsible for the video game, is aware that this has been happening for a long time, despite complaints and the recent Apex Legends hack. After troubleshooting her latest game, the developer has just confirmed that she has put several of her employees to work on the issue.
In one of the streams that they broadcast regularly, the community coordinator Jason Garza has responded to a comment from users, in which they underline that some followers feel abandoned by Respawn. “We have not abandoned you”Garza replied. He states that the team is aware and that they are working on it, although given the nature of the problem (DDoS attacks, mainly) they cannot share updates because otherwise it would be counterproductive. “The thing is that we only have one or two people in it because the rest are in Apex,” he acknowledged.
Some users of the free-to-play Respawn’s battle royale found they couldn’t access the servers. Instead, a message appeared referring to the current situation in Titanfall. It displayed the link to the SafeTitanfall website, a site created by the community for the studio to troubleshoot the title. However, the aforementioned website categorically denied having participated in the hacking campaign from Apex Legends. After hours of work, Respawn managed to reestablish the situation.
After all this history Ryan K. RigneyCommunications director bitterly complained that the Apex Legends hack had only resulted in employees having to work overtime. “Nobody wants to hear developer complaints when DDoS attacks are still a problem we haven’t solved, but this article is true. I was holding my newborn nephew when I discovered the Apex hack. “
Apex Legends is available on Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch, and PC, while the first Titanfall originally came out on Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC.
