As ironic as it may sound, the same thing happened over the weekend, with the Apex Legends servers affected.
It is a fact that the multiplayer modes of Titanfall and Titanfall 2 have been at the mercy of hackers for years. Since the launch of Apex Legends, Respawn’s efforts with its FPS series have focused on exclusively in the free battle royale, causing complaints from its former gaming community. And yesterday, July 4, the Titanfall players claimed their independence. In one of the industry’s most ironic incidents in a long time, unidentified users they hacked into the Apex Legends servers to ask Respawn to do something against Titanfall hackers.
Titanfall 1 is under attack, so is ApexApex Legends hackersYes, just as it sounds. During this past Sunday, players who accessed Apex Legends to play ran into an on-screen message titled “Save Titanfall”, which urged them to head to a website with the same name, alerting them to the widely reported hacker problems in Titanfall. Along with it, how do you share Kotaku, the message present in the battle royale made clear the reason for these second hackers: “Titanfall 1 is under attack, so is Apex“.
Hacking a studio game to ask them to take down hackers from another of their games is a very ironic act, yes, but one that certainly caught the attention of Respawn. With Apex Legends players unable to properly play the shooter, as the hack limited the options to a single modified playlist, the Electronic Arts study confirmed the existence of “issues” at 10:00 PM (CEST). Hours later, already in the dawn from Sunday to Monday for Spain, they resolved the incidents in Apex Legends and servers returned to normal.
“We have determined that this attack, while annoying, has not put personal data at risk or player accounts, “adds Respawn. Given the rush they’ve been in to resolve this attack on Apex Legends, Titanfall players you might be wondering what’s stopping you from doing the same in your previous shooters, as the hacker problem also affects Titanfall 2. Will Respawn take note of the complaints? Recall that Respawn promised just a week ago to end the Apex Legends hackers. And, in view of this incident, it seems that they are losing the game.
