Titanfall studio Respawn Entertainment has started banning cheaters.
Following confirmation that the studio has started to issue bans, developer Jon Shiring took to Twitter to explain that anti-cheat detection measures had been active since the launch of the game.
Curious about anti-cheat/hackers? We have started kicking players and more will follow.— Respawn (@Respawn) March 18, 2014
@Peyman_std @DKo5 we have anti-cheat but it is not enabled yet - it will be soon. This is important to us.— Jon Shiring (@jonshiring) March 16, 2014
@hoverkite it's always been being used to detect them. We're starting to kick them, and there's more coming soon.— Jon Shiring (@jonshiring) March 17, 2014
@ScottKeith42 we are starting to now. It's useful to watch them a bit without revealing your hand.— Jon Shiring (@jonshiring) March 18, 2014
In early March Respawn said it was working hard to eliminate Titanfall cheaters: "Finding cheaters in Titanfall? So are we. We're logging them now and they will be rooted out shortly."
Titanfall debuted at No.1 on the UK all formats chart on Monday after enjoying the biggest launch of 2014 to date.
The game drove a 96 per cent increase in UK Xbox One sales during the week ended March 15.
