Often hailed as one of the best FPS games ever made, Titanfall 2 remains a crowning achievement for Respawn Entertainment. While the beloved shooter retains a loyal fandom, the game itself has long been abandoned by the Apex Legends developer – until now. A surprise update is available to download, alongside some new teases in the latest Apex Legends patch notes.
Titanfall 2 Redditor ‘GeckoEidechse’ highlights the random bug fix, explaing that the “Titanfall2 servers appear to be fixed by Respawn. More specifically, just to clear up any misconceptions, what got fixed was the matchmaking. You no longer get disconnected while searching for a match.” Furthermore, the Redditor and subreddit moderator clarifies that the modding community isn’t behind fix.
“Given that I’m in the modding community, it was obvious to me that it wasn’t anyone of us […] this fix comes from within Respawn (or whoever is working on Titanfall 2 servers). There’s no ‘hackers breaking into servers and fixing them’ happening here.”
Prior to this, other bugs like accessing out-of-bounds areas have been fixed in the background. To mark their presence, Respawn leaves behind a plushie of the mascot Nessie, primarily seen in Apex Legends. While the bug fixes pertain to the PC version of Titanfall 2, it is odd that these issue have been fixed out of the blue, and in proximity to further clues.
Looking into a recent batch of Apex Legends patch notes, you can see that Respawn potentially has more up its sleeves to reveal. The end of the patch notes teases a transmission, with a set of numbers accompanying the mysterious message: “Incoming Transmission…. Subject: Nessie…. 1394521200, 1477638000. 1549267200.”
These numbers are Unix timestamps, which can be inputted to reveal the respective release dates for Titanfall, Titanfall 2, and Apex Legends. Have a go for yourself here.
Word of a Titanfall sequel isn’t official, but fans have been hoping for years that the Star Wars Jedi Survivor developer would revisit the franchise in the future. With Respawn currently working on a Star Wars FPS title, the future of Titanfall remains quiet for now.
