After years of struggling against DDoS attacks, Titanfall is being removed from sale

Respawn Entertainment has decided to give up after years of trying to stop hacks and DDoS attacks, which at times rendered Titanfall inaccessible. Respawn Entertainment posted a tweet to Twitter stating that the studio is stopping sales of Titanfall today and will end subscriptions on March 1, 2022.

After a lengthy battle with hackers dating back to 2019, the decision to stop Titanfall sales was made. This resulted in a “mostly bad” user rating on Steam. There was some hope at the beginning of the year. Respawn promised players that help would be coming in April. But by May, the situation was worse than ever. In July, Jason Garza, Respawn’s community coordinator, acknowledged that Apex Legends’ demands meant that only “one to two” people were still working on Titanfall support.

The studio stated that Titanfall was a core part of Respawn’s DNA. “This incredible universe will continue,” it said. “Today, Apex Legends and Titanfall 2 are the best. And we will continue to do so in the future. This franchise is an excellent example of the kind of experiences we will continue to offer here at Respawn.

Respawn did not say why the game was being taken off sale. However, given that today’s peak concurrent Steam player count is 7 and the Origin numbers are comparable, it seems reasonable to conclude that it is just not worth the effort to fight hackers. The game servers will still be available for play, but it is unclear what value this will bring, considering the game is virtually unplayable most days.

Respawn has made similar remarks about Titanfall’s importance in the past. In September, respawn said almost the same thing (“Titanfall forms the very core of our DNA”) when it denied that Titanfall 3 was in development. However, Apex Legends is the studio’s top priority. This ongoing battle royale is also set in Titanfall and thus technically is part of the “franchise.”

Titanfall 2 is expected to succeed, even though Titanfall has been effectively ended. Although it has severe DDoS and hacking issues, Titanfall 2 is still worth the investment as a single-player game.—how-to-get-free-gems—how-to-get-free-gems/c/H2EK5Y-YfCU
