Jon Shiring has commented on the ongoing cheating and hacking activities that is plaguing the recently-released multiplatform video game, “Titanfall.” According to a report from Gameranx on March 17, a fan complained about the “hackers getting out of hand” in just several days after launch, asking Respawn Entertainment to provide an update on the situation.
The coder from the studio replied by saying that the development team does have an anti-cheating plan in place although it has not yet ready to be activated. He did reassure that it will be enabled soon, however, as dealing with the hackers is important to the company. You can find some screens of “Titanfall” by viewing the slideshow to the left of this article and the comments below:
We have anti-cheat but it is not enabled yet - it will be soon. This is important to us.
Another fan jumped in on the conversation, saying that the slow approach being taking by Respawn Entertainment is turning off honset players from the video game. Jon Shiring responded by saying that the development team are catching the cheaters red-handed. They just haven’t enforced the punishments yet. You can find his statement below:
We ARE catching them. We are not yet ENFORCING it.
“Titanfall” came out last week on March 11 for the PC and Xbox One. Like most popular multiplayer games, some players have discovered exploitative ways, such as aim bots, to gain a competitive advantage over others. The same software product is also coming to the Xbox 360 next month on April 8.
