Titanfall 2 is undergoing an epic revival as it is reaching 22,733 peak players in the last 24 hours. Before this month, the game only had a measly 3,248 peak. At this time, the game is nearing its all-time peak of 27,547. Respawn, the game developer of Titanfall 2, released an update fixing the matchmaking problems that have been ruining player experience for years. Fans are anticipating more good news from Respawn, following the latest Apex Legends news that has a hidden Titanfall reference at the end.
Respawn released Titanfall 2 back in 2016. It was such a fan favorite, that players wanted a Titanfall 3. However, Respawn canceled Titanfall 3 in favor of Apex Legends, a battle royale FPS that is also a major esports title. With Respawn’s shift of focus, fans of Titanfall began to give up hopes of a new game and server fixes.
Sudden Official Update Leads to Titanfall 2 Epic Revival
No one expected a matchmaking fix for Titanfall 2. Hence, it is a surprise to many that there was an official update on the first week of September. This update addressed disconnection issues and even changed weapon loadouts. This prompted gamers to come back to Titanfall 2, and suddenly the peak players went from around 2,000 to 22,733 in under two weeks.
Of course, Apex Legends has new content as well. Three days ago, Apex posted an article introducing their Harbingers Collection Event. Three numbers can be found at the end of the article: 1394521200, 1477638000, and 1549267200. These are the Unix timestamps for the release dates of Titanfall, Titanfall 2, and Apex Legends. Speculation instantly built up among the Apex community.
Does the Titanfall 2 epic revival signal a Titanfall 3, or is this just Respawn’s live support for its current games and nothing more? Time will tell.
