In response to years of cyberattacks, Titanfall has been withdrawn from the market

Titanfall is under his DDoS attack, which has resulted in players being kicked from servers, unable to join matches, and unable to play purchased games. Players begged Respawn to address the issue, but it appears the company never did anything about it. Despite saying it`ll keep servers alive, the game is virtually unplayable. The hacking and DDoS attacks caused Titanfall to be abandoned on PC. According to Steam Charts, there are no current players on Titanfall, and on average six people play the game monthly.

Respawn Entertainment has announced that on March 1, 2022, the original Titanfall game will no longer be sold and will be removed from its subscription service. However, the Titanfall server remains alive due to the dedicated fan base that still plays. This decision was made after a string of DDoS attacks in recent years. A denial of service attack aims to disrupt the normal traffic of a server by flooding it with requests, causing it to stop working.

Highlights

  • This prompted players to voice their concerns to Respawn and EA, and Titanfall on Steam received overwhelmingly negative reviews, while players bombarded EA forums with their pleas, and some disgruntled gamers even started (it`s no longer active) to spread awareness of the game`s issues. Some went to the extent to hack Apex Legends servers and display the hashtag `#SAVETITANFALL` on in-game pop-ups.

  • For the past three years, hackers have used exploits in Titanfall`s servers to disrupt the game and render it unplayable. Hackers used bot requests, which would constantly connect to Titanfall`s servers and fill the needed player threshold in the lobby before a match started, so players were unable to join matches. And despite the game being unplayable for the past few years, Respawn was still selling the game on PC. You had purchased the game during that time you would be met with a `dead` game.

Instead, Respawn waved a white flag and left Titanfall a no-man’s land – there isn’t much hope left for Titanfall 2 either must play. Overall, the decision has only resulted in negative reactions from fans who may never forgive Respawn.

Even Titanfall 2 started to be hacked. Titanfall 2 streamers` were being `blacklisted,` as hackers tracked their various accounts and IP addresses to ensure they could never join a match. Respawn did apologize and aimed to fix the issues plaguing both Titanfall games saying, “help is coming”, and that it was investigating the continued DDoS attacks in May. But again, that help never came. A previous employee at Respawn even said that the company “WILL solve this” back in July.
