Titanfall’s dedicated PC servers will be running from the Xbox LIVE Cloud

One of the things that Microsoft haven’t backpedaled on since their E3 2013 conference is their commitment to the creation of massive cloud server farms, used to sync your saved games, provide spare computational power on certain rendering effects, and all sorts of other things.

Now, Respawn have announced that upcoming multiplayer shooter Titanfall will be using the power of that cloud for their dedicated servers on PC, Xbox One and Xbox 360. Which is good news, because, hey — dedicated servers.

On the other hand, it does mean that the chances of us here at games.on.net running a Titanfall server for you just went down very drastically. We’ll be chasing up with Microsoft and Respawn to see if we can get some more details about where exactly these dedicated servers will be located.

That’s retarded. Why limit your dedicated server options?

Because just like every developer “we know better”, so far all they’ve done is talk smack.

 

Does this also mean PC players will potentially need an Xbox Live Gold like subscription in order to play?

 

jjager,

The only requirement would be Origin, If they make it GFWL as well it would be a nightmare for a lot of PC gamers

 

Origin AND gfwl? fuck me its no wonder consoles are more popular.

NNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOooooo
why do you do this to us, revenge for xbox outcry, need more money, need to justify having GFWL every once and awhile? what what is this

 

realone,

I bet that’s the end game. Push the use of GFWL for new titles by forcing players to use their servers. Dedicated or not this isn’t the best option.

Has it been confirmed if any of the servers will be in the APAC region or will we be made to play with people in the EU or US?
EDIT: Sorry just re-read the end of the story on the servers.

 

shlaimon,

lol. best statement ever! I hope they TOTALLY re do GFWL to coincide with a next generation feel… something a lot less intrusive would be a good start. dumping it altogether a better one..
