Apex Legends has been hacked, and the goal of the hacker is to apparently complain about Titanfall being hacked.
The Apex Legends News Twitter page (thanks, Eurogamer) shared that the hacker’s work involves inserting a message about “Saving Titanfall” into playlists, as well as having a post-match “important message” directing them to savetitanfall.com. Apex Legends News also noted that the Save Titanfall website has distanced itself from the hacker and said that it was not associated with the hack.
The page added that those affected can’t queue for game modes other than one labelled “SAVETITANFALL.COM|BRUH”. Respawn has since made matchmaking functional again.
As for why Save Titanfall exists, the website says, “Titanfall is a beloved franchise by many, and hacker issues have been at rise. The Titanfall community has been begging Respawn to fix this issue for over three years, but to no avail. Today this game is still being sold, while being completely unplayable. It's time we speak up.”
