It's no secret to anyone that the Titanfall series has suffered from terrible player retention and the playerbase has slowly dwindled over the years, but contrary to the recent popular belief that Apex Legends was going to become so popular it would gut Titanfall's playerbase, it seems that the exact opposite of that has happened, a large amount of players are playing the game right now and the playerbase is witnessing more than a 100% increase across multiple platforms.


Usually on the working days, Titanfall 2's avg worldwide players on PC would be around 800-1500, right now it has made a jump to 3400 this Saturday.




On the PS4, TF2 would usually be around 2k players at this time, it has more than doubled that number right now.




Xbox One had the biggest player spike, it went from having 2k-3k on the usual Saturdays to a whooping 10k pilots!

Really? I play TF2 weekly on ps4 and it's usually at 3-5k population.

That's a pretty big bump for Xbox though

I know I jumped back in. Gotta replay the SP to get my parkour skills back before I jump back into MP. BLOPS4 is fun but it's fucking with my Titanfall skills.

Yes! Yes!!! People are realizing Respawn makes the best multiplayer shooters, by far! Everyone who hasn't tried Titanfall 2 yet needs to get on that train, ASAP! Both the campaign and multiplayer are glorious!

I got 1 month of Origin Access Basic for the 1000 Apex Coins and to try out Anthem, but it looks like Titanfall 2 full game is part of Access Basic. I might give it a go.

I'm gonna pick up Titanfall 2 after payday this week, as I've heard nothing but good things about its single player campaign, and I've been in a mech-game mood recently for some reason (it's because of Austin Walker).

After being reminded about how much I enjoy Respawn's gunplay, I went back to play some Titanfall 2 as well. While I prefer the first game's multiplayer, 2 is still a great time. Titanfall 2's campaign is one of the best FPS campaigns ever made, so can't wait to replay that.

A friend of mine recently bought it too. Definitely helps that it is so cheap on Xbox right now.

Awesome awesome news!
I've been playing since launch and yeah, you legit couldn't get into a game on PS4 anymore during certain times of day.... at least, not without sitting in a matchmaking que upwards of 5 minutes.
Xbox has really ever had this problem as its more or less always managed to have almost double the playercount. Im sure TF1 exclusiveness helped lay that foundation

Release Titanfall 2 MP in its entirety as a new Apex Legends mode for free. Or maybe just Bounty Hunt because I don't care about the other modes.

The game has doubled and tripled in player population on all 3 platforms. Not sure what you want to call it?
A little boost. . Its needs to be bigger then that and mostly longer also.
Apex servers were down last night also wich makes maybe people jump in on TF2. Even more on Xbox because of EA access.

If Apex means Titanfall 2 comes back into focus, I am all for it. If it means people try out a TF3 game, then that is great too. Mobility, gunplay and Titan combat makes it worth playing, as does the excellent SP.

"Resurgence" is abit of a to big word i think.
It certainly is on Xbox.... I've literally not seen numbers that high in years.
You have to understand, there was a time (around launch timeframe really), where is was totally normal to see upwards of 40 - 50k players.... not 4

Waiting for Titanfall 2 to be a PS+ game of the month so it can finally get the spotlight it deserves.
I feel like EA would rather try to sell PlayStation on EA Access, rather than give away their games on PS Plus.

No doubt that the heightened player base on Xbox ONE is because it's on a subscription service.

Well, I sure reinstalled and played a few Matches of TF2 after playing a few rounds of Apex Legends and realising that everything I loved about Titanfall and made it special was missing. Made me realise how much I missed playing the game.

I will completely give Apex it's due kudos as it made design choices that completely made BR a viable game.... for me at least, lol

That being said, it ain't shit to Titanfall.

I always found weird how this game has always been dirt cheap both in digital and physical

Like, I could buy the game now at $5 dollars, something that I could only do with games like fallout 4 and borderlands
