Microsoft, Respawn to ‘fix’ Xbox One controller before ‘Titanfall’ launch

Microsoft will send out an update to recalibrate the Xbox One controller sometime between now and the launch of Respawn Entertainment’s much-anticipated mech first-person shooter Titanfall next month, according to a report today from GameSpot.

In an interview with The Verge, Titanfall design lead Justin Hendry said the update to the Xbox One console is just a matter of “fixing the controller input” so that it felt less “twitchy.”

“It wasn't really where we felt it should be; it was a little overly twitchy with the current controls,” Hendry said. “Now it's fixed. We're happy with it."

Respawn and Microsoft collaborated on the Xbox One controller recalibration.

In the same interview Hendry said that Respawn is working with Microsoft on a new version of the Xbox One’s upscaler, which would most likely help render games at lower resolutions to 1080p.

The news comes as Respawn community manager Abbie Heppe revealed today that Titanfall will not run at native 1080p for the Xbox One, though the full-scale game will likely run close to 900p and be upscaled to the higher resolution.
