Titanfall lead programmer Jon Shiring admitted that the game's anti-cheat system hasn't been turned on yet.
If you've been busy playing Respawn Entertainment's mech-tastic shooter Titanfall, you may have noticed some players pulling off some seemingly impossible stunts. Many fans were quick to call "hacker," and this time, they may just be right. In response to a fan query query over the high prevalence of hackers, lead programmer Jon Shiring admitted that the game's anti-cheat system hasn't been turned on yet, but it will be enabled "soon".
He later clarified, when pressured as to whether or not Respawn's prior statement about anti-cheat working was false, that there is an anti-cheat system in place that is "catching" cheaters, but that the system that punishes them hasn't been enabled yet. He said that they would start dealing with the cheaters "very soon." He said that the reason it wasn't enabled from release was because "It's useful to watch them a bit without revealing your hand."
We have reached out to Respawn for comment on whether this is effecting the PC, Xbox, or both versions of the game, and for a more precise time-frame on the solution.
I've already seen quite a few cheaters in the PC version of the game, from players who were very clearly speed hacking to Titans that could fly. How about you guys?
