Respawn Entertainment are beginning to ban cheaters who play Titanfall.
The developers of the critically acclaimed multiplayer action-shooter today announced via their website that as of March 21st they had begun to ban players who cheat on the PC edition of Titanfall.
“Titanfall uses FairFight to detect cheaters on PC,” said a statement. “Since the launch of Titanfall, we’ve been collecting data on people who are cheating on PC but not immediately enforcing bans.”
“As of Friday, March 21st, that has changed and we have started banning cheaters in Titanfall. We will be continuing to tweak the algorithm over time to catch more cheaters.”
They also said that whilst cheaters who get banned will still be able to play the game, they will only be allowed to play with other cheaters.
If non-cheaters are involved with playing with other friends, then they too will only be allowed to play other cheaters until “you stop inviting your cheater friend, you will once again get to play with the non-cheater population”.
Titanfall launched March 11 for Xbox One and PC whilst the Xbox 360 version has been delayed until April 11th.
Whilst no financial information, such as sales or copies sold, have been provided as of yet, a report surfaced last week that EA had acquired the rights for a possible sequel.
