A day later, Respawn took to Twitter to reveal that the threat isn’t that serious, and hackers could only crash a player’s game at best. The developer further clarifies there isn’t much of a risk to a player’s machine, and that the warnings are now deemed to be a bit premature.
Titanfall 2 has been constantly fighting an uphill battle with hackers, and Respawn’s ignorance escalated matters further as a DDoS attack on Apex Legends ensued with a “Save Titanfall” message. A previous report revealed that only a handful of people were working on Titanfall, which of course, invited a flurry of controversies.
An Update: We’re still investigating this issue but our engineers believe that we’re dealing with a simple exploit that can be used to crash games.— Respawn (@Respawn) September 9, 2021
We do not believe there are any more serious risks to affected players or their machines.
We’ll update again as we learn more.
