Titanfall Dev Removes Pilot Hunter, CTF From PC Version
Due to their non-use and overlong wait times, both modes are currently out of public multiplayer.
Respawn Entertainment’s latest update for Titanfall has brought a host of changes, both in visual and gameplay fixes. But the biggest change that the developer implemented has been the removal of Capture the Flag and Pilot Hunter modes from public play. These modes will still be available for Private matches and in the Variety mode.
Respawn addressed these changes on the official blog, stating that, “We have an amazing and large PC audience with the vast majority of users predominantly playing Attrition and Hardpoints game modes. CTF and Pilot Hunter have not been widely used modes on the PC version, so players trying to access these modes had overlong wait times to find other users and it was making for a poor experience.
“We want to make sure that not only is there compelling content in the playlists we offer, but that the experience of joining a match works well. We’re tracking what playlists players are choosing, and we’re going to continue to look at unpopular playlists and add new ones on both platforms.
“Our goal is to have a wide variety of playlists that are popular and changing. That said, we will not remove modes from Private Matches, so there will always be the option to select them for competitive and personal play.”
New modes and updates will be arriving in the coming weeks, with different changes to the existing game types also being planned. Pilot Hunter and CTF will be rotated in Variety playlists though.
Titanfall has also recently received three new maps via the Expedition DLC which is available for PC and Xbox One.
