Titanfall is being removed from sale on all storefronts effective immediately, developer Respawn Entertainment announced recently. The game became a hotbed for hackers over the past few years, and it looks like Respawn is finally submitting. Titanfall will also be removed from subscription services on 1 March 2022.
Respawn Entertainment have battled hackers for a few years now on Titanfall. While the servers still stayed on, numerous hackers took advantage of some of the game’s unpatched vulnerabilities, resulting in many DDoS attacks, cheats and other hacks. It looks like the developer has buckled, which is a shame considering Titanfall is a genuinely great online shooter.

Respawn issued a statement yesterday revealing that they will be ceasing sales of Titanfall immediately:
“Titanfall is part of our DNA at Respawn. It’s a game that showcased the ambitions of the studio when it was first released more than 7 years ago and it continues to be a beacon of innovation that we strive for in all of our games.
We’ve made the decision to discontinue new sales of the original Titanfall game starting today and we’ll be removing the game from subscription services on March 1, 2022. We will, however, be keeping Titanfall servers live for the dedicated fanbase still playing and those who own the game and are looking to drop into a match.
Rest assured, Titanfall is core to Respawn’s DNA and this incredible universe will continue. Today in Titanfall 2 and Apex Legends, and in the future. This franchise is a north star for the caliber of experiences we will continue to create here at Respawn. Thank you from the entire Respawn team.”
Meanwhile, Respawn is currently working hard to maintain both Titanfall 2 and Apex Legends, which both have massive player bases.
